Casino on the Liberty of the Seas

I sailed on the 25 June 2017 sailing of the Liberty of the Seas out of Galveston. I have already talked about embarkation, specialty restaurants, the spa, and the suite lounge. I will keep writing as time allows, but for now I want to answer some of the common question a lot of folks will have about the casino. If there is something I don’t cover here, I hope you will post your questions. I will do my best to answer them. Continue reading “Casino on the Liberty of the Seas”

Suite Lounge on Liberty of the Seas

One of the perks of booking a Grand Suite or higher most Royal Caribbean ships is that you have access to a private lounge. The lounge has a concierge to hemp you avoid the line at the customer service desk, and it is a quiet space to sit with drinks and snacks provided for part of the day. The Liberty of the Seas used to provide this in a consolidated space on Deck 10. However, that old concierge lounge has been replaced by the Suite Lounge and the Diamond Lounge on Deck 14.

While the menu was more limited than it is at dinner, that was a fine tradeoff for the lower price we paid. The food was delicious. Continue reading “Lunch in Chops Grill on the Liberty of the Seas”

Spa onboard the Liberty of the Seas

I am currently onboard the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas sailing out of Galveston en route to Roatan, Honduras. I noted earlier that RCCL was having trouble with how their account balances displayed, and that problem seems to have resolved itself– I am now onboard and have received all of the packages and promotions I was expecting to receive. While I will publish my reviews of this trip over the next several weeks, I am trying to write as much as possible while still on board. Rather than the traditional style of travel blog reviewing a day or an entire cruise, I am going to review particular elements of this ship. Today I want to discuss the spa.
