We have booked the Liberty out of miami for June 6. It goes to Labadee,St. Marteen and San Juan and we are very excited for it. We just saw a deal for the Freedom of the Seas June 14 that goes to St. Marteen, St. Thomas, and Coca Cay out of Port Canveral. We are unsure what to do because it was a good deal. 799$ for an inside and 1299$ for a balcony. This is about three or four hundred less. What do you think would be the better cruise or better option.

The ships are almost identical. I'd take the Freedom and pocket that big savings.

Yeah, the only other thing is that we love the miami area and we have 2 hundred dollars onboard credit for the Liberty. So it kinda makes it tough. We are trying to cut costs and weigh our options and find which week and itenary fits us better.

Hi
We are going on the Liberty in May.
I am wondering how you got onboard credit?
Thanks

Another point to factor in is that the cruise port of Port Canaveral is about 50 minutes away from the Orlando Airport. If you're flying to Orlando, you'll also need to factor in the cost to fly to Orlando instead of Miami, and arrange transportation to the ship and back, either through the cruise line or on your own.

If you're driving to the ship, it's not an issue.

Thanks for the input. We are driving to the port so it is time and gas that plays into the equation. We got the onboard credit booking it through bj's travel.

When are you going in May. I see on their website a pretty good price that is less than royal caribbean's website and you can get up 10 one hundred dollars onboard credit. You should take a look at their site.

Please note that we prefer members not publicly promote specific travel agencies or agents. If we allowed this the forum would soon be a travel bazaar. We have a Private Message option if you wish to talk to another member in private about something.

Sorry I am not trying to promote it. I have just found great deals for May June and July that are less than RCI. I was excited to see a more manageable way to cruise this great line. I do not know if it is any better but it starts at 799$. Other sailings that month start a little less.
