Liberty of the Seas Cruise with Royal Caribbean

Recently, my family and I went on a cruise on the Royal Caribbean ship, “Liberty of the Seas“.  We had a fantastic time on and off the ship on the cruise.  We visited Cozumel, Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Falmouth, Jamaica and those trips were everything I had dreamed they could be.  I am in NO way affiliated with RCI but I do want to share opinions and some advice.

Problem with the Royal Caribbean Sites

Before we move on, I think we should all acknowledge a serious problem with the RCI sites:  there is no coherent and collected set of expectations, guidelines, or prices.  Those sites only display a set of reviews and, perhaps, cloudy language about what is expected or anticipated.

Goal of these Articles

In this series of articles, I’ll share what we learned about the a trip aboard the LotS and about some of the destinations we visited on our cruise (Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica).  I will write about things to pack, clothing to take, if money should be on hand, what expenses you might incur, and reasonable activities for a normal family or person.

The premises will be that a person is traveling either alone or with a traditional family (spouse and kids).  People will need to eat, will desire to dress appropriately, will have the financial means to take one of these trips, and will be equipped with modern technology (cameras, laptops, smart phones, tablets, etc.)  Further, this traveler will attempt to take full advantage of what it is that the ship can offer.
