Review summary

I loved the freestyle approach. Multiple dining options from casual to more formal- eat where you want, when you want and with who you want. Cruising your way. And the cruise was a great option to visit multiple islands in one trip. We did something really different every day and loved it.

I was worried about cramming 4 people in one room, but it totally worked. Keep in mind the additional 2 beds are pull downs with a fairly short clearance from the ceiling. My only complaint is the awful ladders on bare feet.

Ship tip

The Liberty dining room has a dress code, but the menu is exactly the same as the Skyline. Not worth the effort unless you really want a reason to dress without paying for the specialty restaurants.

This is the only port where you use a tender because the ship doesn't have a port it can dock at. But, its also the only one you can really walk to shops, restaurants, etc on your own.
