Liberty of the Seas Cruise Review by Aquahound
- Sail Date: February 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
Embarkation was a breeze. No issues at all. We had priority boarding privileges, so we were escorted to a seperate waiting area upstairs. Boarding began at 11:15 am.
The ship is gorgeous. She is showing no signs of wear and looks every bit as wonderful as when Freedom Class first hit the waters.
Rooms were ready at 1:00 pm. Our Cat D2 room was impressive and very large. These are some of the largest standard balcony rooms at sea. The balcony was also very spacious. The room was clean and everything was in good working order. The bathroom was large and the shower was impressively large with a curved shower door. No curtain. Amenities included shampoo, body wash, and lotion.
Shows were spectacular. Saturday Night Fever was one of my favorite shows seen on a cruise - ever. In The Air was also impressive, as were the comedians.
We ate in both Portofino and Chops. We found the food to be great in both and loved the intimate atmospheres. Highly recommend these options. Main dining room food was good, but nothing to rave about. No real complaints there.
Our only problem was an issue with show reservations. Before the cruise, we reserved Saturday Night Fever for the night we were in Cozumel. However, the show wasn't until the final sea day. This created a problem because we reserved our dinner times around the shows. According to the staff, the show date was not changed, so the on-line reservations must have been wrong. Something to keep inmind when booking reservations.
Disembarkation was a a little hectic. Because this was a short cruise, a lot of people opted to carry off their luggage for early disembarkation. This created a very long line for Customs clearning.
I highly recommend Liberty of the Seas. Other than the reservation hiccup, everything else was spectacular.
