Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas - Part 1

Image
Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Royal Caribbean. I guarantee that all opinions are my own. 

Well folks. It's been 10 days since returning home from my recent cruise on Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas and I think I've finally got my land legs back. I was still swaying for a while there.

There are so many things that I want to tell you about this cruise ship and I hope I can do it justice because I was seriously impressed with everything from the design to the high level of entertainment. I'll talk more about the FUN we had in my next post but first I want to highlight the impressive features onboard.

The first thing I want to mention is the size of the Liberty of the Seas because this is one BIG ship - as a matter of fact, it's the 3rd largest cruise ship in the world (behind the Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas - both with Royal Caribbean as well). You might expect for a ship this size to come with some pretty impressive amenities …
