We just booked our first RCCL cruise on the Liberty and was wondering if we will be able to handle such a large ship. Also since the cruise is only 7 days, will there be enough time to explore and enjoy such a large vessel????

I haven't been on one of the newest, huge ships (the kind with the Nascar track on deck 22 as our cruise director Casey joked when we were recently on the Sovereign), However, I'm sure you won't have any problem. All the ships are huge when it comes down to it and everything is very well marked especially near the elevators where it tells what all is on each level. They don't want ya lost! There is always a staff/crewmember to ask everywhere you look if you can't find something right away.
My advice is don't try to plan too much about what to see on the ship. Even in 7 days, you probably won't see everything on any ship. Sometimes the things you plan to see or spend the most time doing or seeing is where you end up spending the least amount of you time and vise versa. Your daily crusie compass you get every night will also keep you well on track. Enjoy!

I was recently on the Freedom which is just as huge. I thoroughly enjoyed the ship-and NO we didn't get to see or do everything aboard. Just try and figure out which facilities and attractions you feel are "can't miss" and try and leave time for some of the rest.
