The food and service were incredible. The ship is showing signs of age and will be refurbished soon. Entertainment and activities were on par with other ships. But there sin't seem to be as much live music on this cruise. One of the bands was really good but other that a DJ, not a lot of other good live alternatives. Some lines at bars at peak times, number of bartenders were good but some of the bar areas were small so not enough room for them to work efficiently. We did Chops the first night and it was probably one of the best fillets I have ever eaten. but then every meal in the MDR was exceptional. The Windjammer had a good variety every day with many new items at each meal. We have been on cruises where it was the same dishes every day and that gets old very quickly. Our Jr Suite was spacious and always clean (thanks Julian). It was close but not too close to the elevator. Noise was never a problem. Loved having a larger balcony and larger shower. The Casino was very smoky at times. People were wearing masks and covering their mouth and nose with napkins. A better air filtration system is needed or better yet make it non-smoking. the non-smoking section was a joke as the smell was just as bad there. Maybe even a non-smoking cruise!!! I am a former smoker but at times it really was a bit much. We did a private tour on Roatan through Victor Bodden Tours and it was great. At Belize we did the Lamanai Ruins. It was a great experience, but we tendered in just in time to run to the other end of the pier and arrived back with 10 minute to get onboard. So it being a 6+ hour excursion, we had no time to shop at that port. At Cozamel we simply shopped at the pier. Good variety of merchandise, but many of the shop owners/employees are, lets say aggressive in their sales techniques. We were on the ship before 1100 on embarkation day and chose to self checkout and were of the ship before 9 am on the day which was great as we has a long drive home. We parked at Park N Cruise right across the street, less than 5 minute walk from the ship. Good value and the car was indoors. All in all, was it the cruise ever, probably not. Would I do it again? I can be at the port again next Sunday!!!!

First time on Liberty, best ship we have been on so far.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite
Cabin J3 9328
Spacious inside and out. Bed was comfortable and lots of storage. Only suggestion with limited plug ins available would be nice if a clock was in the room.
