We arrived in Miami a day early just so we could see the Liberty. Boarding was a breeze with by having completed our on-line boarding pass. Everything was pristine and beautiful...hopefully the future guests will keep it that way. With the size of the ship a week just isn't long enough to explore all it has to offer. We wanted to stay aboard for the next cruise (like 15 other people did) but had to get back home. If we had one bad thing to say, it was the scheduling of the shows in relation to the crown and anchor society events. The show, whcih we couldn't miss, over ran and we missed our past cruisers get together...very dissapointing. Also, we will opt for early seating dinner next cruise as we were literally worn out after dinner was over at aroung 10:00 and some of the late seating shows started at 11:00. Our balcony stateroom was beautiful! It had a king size bed and a larger than normal balcony as we opted for the "bump-out" balcony. There was lots of room for everything we brought and the luggage fit neatly under the bed. We wish there had been a reclining chair on the balcony and we would have probably slept there and listned to the ocean!Our overall expreience is an A++++ and cannot wait until next year! By the way, anyone who has a bad experience in the ports of call are probably new cruisers. It takes a while to get used to the different cultures and we recommend attending the shopping and excursion talks as these are invaluable tools for you to use. As far as the picture prices go, take your own photography equipment. RCCL really needs to do something about the photo prices. They would probably sell out if they were priced reasonably, say $5.00 a picture. It is unbeleivable the amount of photo paper wasted because people simply aren't willing to pay the prices. Also, this was our second trip with Ken as the cruise director and, as always, he was great! Thanks for the memories and the "goodies"! See ya next year!
Pros: The size of the ship itself and the excitement of being the first to sail on her.
Cons: Photo prices!!
