Stayed one night prior to cruise in San Juan, Puerto Rico at the El Canario Lagoon hotel. It was a budget hotel and worth the price. Nice, clean, no frills hotel. We embarked on 1/17/16 at 10pm for a 7-night cruise with stops in St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, and St. Maarten. We purchased the "faster to the fun" excursion and it was well worth it. We skipped past any lines and were taken from checking in straight to the gangway, it was awesome!!! The ship itself was very nice, not too big, not too small. We had a balcony cabin which was worth every penny, it made for a nice time whenever we needed to take a break!! It had quite a few amenities like 3 pools, 8 hot-tubs, waterslide, a running track, basketball and volleyball courts, mini-golf and a dive-in movie screen, a sports bar, a piano bar, along with the usual nightclub, adults-only serenity area, children's club and gym/spa. The restaurants were all very good, however the Mongolian Wok line was way too slow. Guy Fieri's burger joint burgers were artery clogging but absolutely to die for!! The entertainment was top notch, for us, the comedians were outstanding and kept us in the comedy club every night. After the laughs we headed over to the piano bar where the young lady, Hailey Morgan, played your requests and kept everyone singing along and having a great time!! We often ended our night at the pizza joint where the pizzas were relatively simple but very tasty!! We did a few excursions and while they were very good, we found we could get a better bargain in the ports. Disembarking was a breeze and everyone was sorry to be leaving. All in all it was a wonderful vacation and I wouldn't hesitate to cruise with Liberty again!!!

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin was very nice. Lots of room and the balcony was worth every penny. Only complaint is only one outlet and and it wasn't near the bed.
