It’s our last day on Carnival Liberty. We’re spending it at sea, and it’s raining, so we set out to see whether the ship’s remaining 2.0 enhancements would offer enough to make the day pass quickly. We were pleasantly surprised.
Cherry on Top is a cute corner store on the Promenade Deck that’s done up in shades of pink. It offers loose candy, for which you’ll pay $8.80 a pound, and prepackaged sweets, including boxed candy that’s great for munching during movies on the Lido Deck or production shows in the theater. Choose from treats like jellybeans, bubblegum, gummy candy and more. You can also purchase flowers, cupcakes ($2.50 each) and special occasion confections like birthday cakes in addition to upscale bath products from Bliss. Get your sugar fix there until 10:30 p.m.
Another fun hangout spot is the EA Sports Bar. A man-cave to end all man-caves, it features 16 46-inch TV screens that can each be tuned to individual games or combined to show just one or two games that span across several screens. The bar also offers video games and an LED sports ticker that posts current scores. The relaxed atmosphere is accented with black and red tones, and you can enjoy the game with your favorite beer until the wee hours of the morning.
Further aft is Alchemy, a swanky-but-simple dark wood bar that serves alcoholic beverages by “prescription.” Choose a drink from one of the light-up menus, or create your own by writing down what you’d like on one of the bar’s prescription pads. Prepare to be surrounded by apothecary jars and bartenders in white lab coats. This venue is also open late.
