Cruise Review: Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas
At 72 pages, it’s the most extensive appraisal of the 3,634-passenger Liberty of the Seas to be posted online, and it includes more than 1,000 photos showing nearly every interior and exterior space of the ship.

Overall, the reviewer found a lot to like on Liberty of the Seas, noting the giant vessel offers “something for almost every age bracket at almost all hours of the day and evening, making it an especially good pick for a multi-generational family cruise.”
Not everything was perfect. “Our dining experience was — at best — average for the cruise industry,” the reviewer notes, and the large number of passengers on board meant that things “didn’t always run smoothly.”
Launched in October, VacationCruisesInfo.com was designed in collaboration with Reviewed.com, a network of online review publications recently acquired by USA TODAY, and it’s devoted to helping would-be cruisers find the perfect ship.
VacationCruisesInfo.com is the first cruise review site to use anonymous reviewers. Unlike reviewers at other sites, VacationCruisesInfo.com reviewers never will travel on free cruises provided by cruise lines, nor will they base their reviews on cruise line-arranged “preview” or “press” cruises for travel writers or any other sailing where their presence on a ship is known.
