Our first experience on the Liberty was a grand one. We were told it was a fine ship, but we were surprised by many good things, not the least of which was the larger balcony stateroom. We nearly always book balcony rooms, and find them to be close to each other in size. Not on the Liberty- she gave us much more usable space.
The meals were very good and, although our table partners changed due to some family requests, we ended up with a nice group of 6. The dining service was a little different on this ship, as we had two primary attendants as opposed to three on our last several cruises. They did a fine job, though. Not sure why the wine steward position wasn't available on the Liberty, but we had no trouble adjusting.
The ship is sneaky big, with the Royal Promenade creating a great centerpiece. We did not expect the Promenade to captivate us much, as we have been on the Allure, but we were wrong- it held our attention and then some with the shops and restaurants and bars and entertainment. Speaking of entertainment, the featured guitar soloist was as good as we have heard on a ship. The Broadway show, though we were not able to see all of it, was very well done and left no doubt that you were watching a professional production.
More space than any ship we have been on. Cabin steward was wonderful. Fixed a few small issues we had with ease and in a hurry.
Having been to Cozumel many times, we opted for a walking tour on our own and lunch at a recommended restaurant. The restaurant was a bust, no cervesa, but we picked an alternative restaurant and had a good meal. We stopped at 2-3 beachfront bars and enjoyed the water- nice ocean floors, sand and rock, which we like. Met a great guy, Tino, who was one of our waiters. He gave some local knowledge and was entertaining. Probably 60 years old, still waiting tables and making people smile. Heck of a guy. Wish I could remember which place he worked, and I would surely tell you so you could go see him.
