We have been on the Liberty 2 times before, nothing was unexpected. This was a 12 day cruise out of San Juan to Galveston Tx. We used JetBlue from Seattle to San Juan, left at 11:00pm on the 5th going through JFK and arrived at 11:40am on the 6th, no problem. We were on the ship by 12:30 after using a taxi from the airport, embarkation was a breeze.
We had cabin 6391 balcony, nice room, after fish and chips for lunch we were unpacked by 4:30. Sail away was at 10:00pm, the muster drill was way too long.
First port was Saint Thomas. We have been to Saint Thomas 7 times so we just did Coki beach, $8pp each way taxi, we rented chairs and umbrella for $20 from Dennis and glad we did because of a little rain. With the amount of ships in port it was crowded.
Normal Balcony room, nice size. Was worried about noise from below at Casino but there was none. Great location
Took taxi to ship, $30 with tip
Coki beach, crowded, lots of ships in port. $8pp taxi each way, $20 for chairs and umbrella.
Grand Anse Beach. The wind was blowing so hard that you could not use water taxi. Beach service was good
Just walked a couple blocks and got the same tour as Carnival offered for $40 for $15
Went to Royal Palms and used a Cabana, was crowded with the number of ships in port and spring break. Really hot so spent a lot of time in water.
