We really enjoyed this cruise, and would definitely cruise on this itinery again. The ship was immaculate, and cabin stewards friendly and efficient. The buffets on the Lido deck were awesome, and the Pizza and burgers were great.

Harry's Supper club provided excellent service, and the food was reminiscent of cruises we took many years ago, when dining service was elegant, and food outstanding.

The dining room service was lacking, as if waiters were encouraged to "forget" to offer you extras, like coffee when you were ordering dessert. The food in the dining rooms was acceptable, with some better than average selections, however service was so slow one could fall asleep between courses, and we missed dessert on a couple of occasions just to get to the show on time.

Entertainment was excellent, and the live musicians throughout the ship were incredibly good. Shows in the theatre were also great, much better than we experienced on our last Royal Caribbean Cruise. Casino staff were friendly, and special tournaments offered were fun (if not rewarding!).

The ports of call were wonderful,, especially Magen's Bay on St. Thomas, and Grand Turk. The beach at Grand Turk cruise center was beautiful, and had good snorkeling, without the expense of a separate excursion. The ship docked right in old San Juan, and so it was easy to walk through the streets, shop and see the beautiful architecture and history straight from the ship.

We met many fun people, and our wonderful dining companions were the main reason we kept returning to the formal dining room nightly.

Definitely a cruise for relaxing and fun.

Pros: Harry's Supper Club

Cons: Dining Room Service

Recommends Carnival Liberty? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was large, and it took us a few days to find our way around. Public areas were attractive, and large enough so we never felt crowded.
Food and Dining
Buffets and Supper club were excellent, dining room just ok.
Cabin / Stateroom
Immaculate, and larger than other cruise lines.
Service and Staff
Everyone was smiling and very willing to help in any way. They all seemed to enjoy workng on the ship, which made a big difference in making us enjoy the cruise.
Evening shows were excellent, and fun. Very talented singers and dancers, and a great magician. The live musicians in lounges and public areas were excellent, and there was even live music in the casino! The singers in the main atrium are highly recommended, as well as the sing-a-longs in the Piano Bar
