  1. Do guests using the fitness center have access to changing rooms and showers on this ship? Any steam or saunas available or only at an extra fee from the spa?
  2. I have seen conflicting information from there is no coffee machine to suites have them standard. I was hoping someone could clear this up for me. Do the grand suites (specifically 2 bedroom) on the Liberty of the Seas have coffee machines and if yes, what type? I'm traveling with someone that likes to have 5am coffee without having to get out of their pajamas.
  3. We will be on the Liberty for the first time in a few weeks and I was just reading a review and now have some questions. In the review she stated their tender ticket number wasn't called until 11:30am!!! We have only been to Cayman on a Carnival Cruise and always manage to get off at a decent time. We usually like to get off as early as possible and plan to go to Royal Palms for the day, if we get off that late its possible they wont have any beach chairs left. So does anyone have any information how to get an earlier tender ticket (without booking an RCCL excursion)? So for the Key is sold out so thats not an option. Thanks for any help.
  4. Liberty of the Seas, sailing Oct. 20, 2019 from Galveston, Texas just reduced their Deluxe Beverage Pkg. from $47.00 to $44.00. WE saved $50.00. Happy Sailing!
  5. For those who have used the parking garage at Port Liberty; can you drop off your passengers close to the boarding area of the Adventure of the Seas so they do not have to walk from the garage to the ship.
  6. Looking at taking a cruise out of Cape Liberty next June. We've never sailed out of NY/NJ and come down the Atlantic coast. Are the seas typically rougher than sailing from Florida and doing the Caribbean? I know it's hurricane season, so take out the remote odds of an early hurricane. Just curious as to whether the waters are any rougher or not based on your experience. Thanks in advance
  7. When we were on board Liberty in early May, the flatware in WJ was not wrapped in napkins as is usual. Is this still the case or are they back to the customary napkin-wrapped bundles?
  8. We have an aft cabin booked on Liberty next spring, on deck 6. Recently we had an aft on a Princess ship and the vibration was awful! We don’t usually book aft cabins, so I was wondering if this is normal? The shaking was really bad during docking and leaving port. It shook things off the shelves! I know some vibration is normal, but this was excessive. Any experience, especially on Freedom class? Thanks!
  9. Is there a place to get fresh juice or smoothies on the Liberty? I see a place on deck 11 called squeeze but can't find a menu. We liked the vitality cafe on the Harmony and it was never too busy great for fresh juices, smoothies, specialty coffee, water etc. covered in the drink plan. They also had some snacks, the granola bars were yummy! Thanks for any info.
  10. Were sailing on the Liberty of the Seas on Aug 4th and I don't see any shows to be able to book. So wondering if they are just not out yet to book or already booked up? Also what shows are there on LOS? Were thinking of doing the Unlimited dining plan for the first time, has anyone recently done this on the Liberty and what are your thoughts? Were you able to eat at Vintages or do the Chef's Table? Thanks for any help!
  11. We are sailing Liberty OTS in October . We were assigned 8698 balcony. It appears it is the last balcony cabin on the side of ship. So one side has no cabin next to us. Has anyone stayed in a cabin like this? Thoughts? TIA
  12. I have only sailed with the other line that goes out of Galveston but due to many reasons, we are looking at Feb on the Liberty. Sorry if the questions are newbie ones. We will be sailing with my 8 y/o high functioning Autistic grandson. He did well on his first cruise, but I am wondering if RCL has the same accommodations for this like CCL. Meaning aging up or down as necessary. A phone for the parent to be contacted if necessary. That kind of information would be great. Dinning is a concern. With CCL we choose anytime, and I see this is an option on RCL. Can we choose a table for us, so we do not hold up other diners? What about dress codes. CCL has them but not entirely enforced. We dress for dinner but just curious to know if capri pants and such are acceptable? Are the specialty restaurants ala carte or flat fee? Lastly, does RCL have anything like Faster to the Fun? Sorry for all the questions. And thanks in advance.
  13. We’re book for May 2020. I was reviewing the shore excursion, dinner plans and beverage packages. I discovered that when you purchase the Classic Beverage Package they add on $22.64 as a service charge. I emailed RC to see what the charge was. I was told that they automatically add 18% gratuity to the package. Question: do we get the gratuity if I use the Freestyle Drink machine and not go to a bar? Seem like another way to make money.
  14. What time is the best to check in at Cape Liberty? We have printed our passes and information but no check in time. Thank you
  15. Where may suite guests dine for lunch on embarkation day aboard Liberty of the Seas? Thank You!
  16. Going on LOS in September again but this time staying in a Grand Suite. Anyone know if it has the Coastal Kitchen? Was on the Harmony last time in a Grand Suite and loved the Coastal Kitchen.
  17. I believe Liberty OTS was amplified in 2018, does anyone know if the GYM floor space is still in the same format and does the Men's and Women's change rooms still offer dry and wet sauna facilities? Cheers
  18. Do suite guests get to dine for dinner in a restaurant like Coastal Kitchen aboard Liberty of the Seas? We have cruised on several Royal Caribbean ships that feature Coastal Kitchens for Suite guests and it was always an enjoyable dinner experience. Thanks for all replies.
  19. I know that the 7-Night Western Caribbean cruise on Liberty of the Seas gets into Galveston at 6:30am. I am considering a 12:00pm flight out of IAH. Would that be reasonable? Or would that be cutting it a bit close? Would I be likely to disembark by 8am?
  20. Hi All, I have not cruised in a while with family. We have 2 couples and 4 kids (14, 16, 18, 21). Our mother passed away a few weeks ago and she wanted us to take a family trip, on her. 💜We are going for Christmas this year trying to decide between the Liberty of the Seas or Symphony of the Seas. There is quite a bit of price difference, which is not really a huge factor and we realize the ships are different in size comparison. We just can't decide which one would be better. I would love some advice. Thank you in advance!
  21. We have never used this port before. Are there buses at the port when you disembark that go to the various airports? We have seen this at the Manhattan cruise port. We are flying out of LaGuardia because of the schedule. Will we be able to buy tickets for this bus transfer? Thanks.
  22. Was our first cruise on Adventure, 5th on RCCL. We found Ft Lauderdale a very efficient place to get to and stay to board a Port Everglades cruise. The airport is next to the cruise port. We were told to not show up until Noon since there were traffic problems in the port that day, Sunday, 5/5/19. There was a water and air show going on, so we got to deck 12 by 2 PM, got to see the Blue Angels flying right over the ship. All of that ceased after 3 PM, but our shove off time was backed up from 5:30 to 9 PM. Evidently Allure was part of the problem, and there was also a Carnival ship waiting to get out of port. The people on the shuttle to the port who were going on the Allure told us they were not supposed to show up until 3 PM, they would be sailing at 8 PM. Turns out the Allure did not pull out until 9:15 PM, the Carnival ship 20 minutes later, and the Adventure started moving at 9:50 PM. It was announced that after 2 days at sea the Adventure would be an hour late into the first port, Aruba, on Day 4. However, all aboard at Aruba was moved back from 4:30 to 10:30. Since Curacao is so close it was no problems to keep the schedule of 8AM to 5 PM the following day. The only other change was on the last sea day it was announced that due to a medical emergency we would be pulling into Cape Liberty ASAP, about 2 AM on 5/17. No one else could get off early, but things went very well for us, walking our own luggage off at 8AM and getting to our Transbridge bus at 8:35. Bus was supposed to leave for The Lehigh Valley Airport in Bethlehem, PA at 9 AM, but 4 people did not show until 9:30 AM, did not realize they could have had their number lowered to get off sooner because of the scheduled bus departure. They seemed to be bus nubies. We had sailed 22 days previously on Mariner so the Adventure seemed like a homecoming. The ship was in excellent shape, and other than having to walk through the casino on deck 4 to get to the theatre, we enjoyed most venues. We had an inside close to midship on deck 9, cabin 9591, Troy took good care of our cabin. We ate all of our meals in Windjammer except lobster night meant my time dining. My wife prefers the great variety of WJ, enjoys the different theme nights. We usually did the early shows in the theatre, either 7 PM or 8 PM, so we never missed a show we had planned to see. There was plenty of trivia available throughout every day and even at 7:30 PM. I met a couple from Austin, Texas and joined their progressive trivia team. After 6 rounds at 10AM every sea day our team came in third, 82 points out of a possible 120, the winning team had 84 points. So we got bronze medals and a RC thermos. The other days we also did quite well, I have a lifetime supply of pens, key chains, highliters and zipper guards. I have not attended any meet and greets for years, find it best to make new friends at trivia. All the games were enjoyable, did not have any arguments about the answers. All the crew members were friendly fun, and there were no language problems which had been encountered on previous cruises. More on ports and entertainment later.
  23. This is our second cruise, but our first one driving to the port. We are on the Anthem for 5 days going to Bermuda. I have a few embarkation questions: What is the earliest time we can board the ship? Does the parking lot provide shuttle to the ship? I believe I read that it is near the ship, but my husband has trouble walking, so I am hoping there is a way to get to the ship. Thank you for your help!
  24. It's currently just a few minutes past 9:30pm in Texas and the Liberty is still at the cruise terminal in Galveston. Anyone know why it's still there at this time of night? We are sailing back to Galveston on the Enchantment and was hoping to see the Liberty pass by us tonight.
  25. I have fallen in love with CC! We booked our cruise 5 months ago and I "discovered" CC shortly thereafter. I think I might have actually found CC back in 2016 after I booked our 2017 MSC Mediterranean cruise but I know never "discovered" the forum. Anyways, one of my favorite parts of the forum has been to follow live reviews and live vicariously through other posters experiences. DW and I are not veteran cruisers but we're planning on becoming veterans . So this review will be seen through the lens of someone who is discovering RCi. We cruised once on RCi 11 years ago on Seranade of the Seas to Alaska but as I have read here on CC a lot has changed since then. Honestly, I barely remember that trip. I'm neither a prolific writer nor a particularly talented photographer so apologies in advance for any short comings there. For context, a little about us... We are mid 50's, love to travel and do so extensively. We are originally from Vancouver BC but now make our home in Central CA. We have seen a goodly portion of Western Europe, a tiny bit of of Southern Europe (the Med cruise last year) and have travelled through 32 of 50 states. When we travel we usually stay in mid-priced hotels (read Hampton Inn) but enjoy splurging now and again for luxuries or more exotic experiences. This cruise is the result of a trip we took early this year to Florida. We agreed to a time share pitch that included a 3-4 night RCi cruise to the Bahamas. Sit through the time share get a cruise and a $200 Hilton gift certificate. One of the alternatives on the cruise certificate was to use it for up to $500 off any cruise RCi offered. That was our choice and we choose as our cruise this 7 day Western Caribbean cruise departing from Galveston TX. We will be staying in Spacious Balcony Cabin #1704. This is an aft cabin. Thanks to all of you great posters on CC I learned that aft cabins are the best. After booking a regular balcony cabin I discovered there was an aft balcony available. I called and had our cabin changed to this aft location. Interestingly, this cabin is listed as a 3 or more person cabin but they allowed us to book it with only two people. I called and changed to this cabin after final payment date so I'm not sure if that had any impact on our ability to get it. Day 0: Today is travel day. We fly out of Fresno CA at 10:15 am through LAX into IAH. We should land about 6pm CDT. Right now, I'm packed and ready to go. I'm sitting outside, drinking coffee, listening to the roosters cock-a-doodle-doo, waiting for one last west-coast sunrise. DW is still sound asleep. More later...
