Love the Liberty

Sail Date: September 2010
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
We were on our annual Mother/Daughter cruise. We had never been on a Freedom class ship before and enjoyed the layout of the ship and the space. Our cabin was great. We had a balcony, and used it more than we thought we would.

Dining- The MDR was just average. We liked it, but weren't really "wow'ed" by anything. We didn't feel there was as huge a selection as we've had in the past. Service for lunch and breakfast in the MDR was very slow. Our head waiter was the best we've ever had. He stopped by our table every night and was very engaging. We ate a Chops one night, and did not feel it lived up to it's hype. The food was ok, but the decor was in need of an update. We ate at the Windjammer several times for lunch and breakfast. We liked the lay out, and variety of food offered. Our favorite snack was the afternoon scone during Tea Time and made it a point to get one everyday. The service was also very good. We didn't care for the midnight buffet replacement-the culinary More showcase in the promenade. It was too crowded with everything else going on.

Shows-We weren't at all impressed with the 3 main stage shows. We felt the storyline was vague and difficult to follow. The singers were not the best and often times not in tune. We traveled Disney last year and felt their shows were far superior to these. We are big "show people" and were very disappointed with these. The other shows however, we liked. The opening and closing variety shows were good. We liked the Ice Show very much, and found it a unique offering.

Staff-Our cruise director Kirk was great. His team was ok, but I didn't find any of them especially memorable. Our cabin steward was adequate. We didn't meet him until the 3rd day, but he was accomodating and was unobtrusive, which we liked. As mentioned above, our Head Waiter was fantastic.

Activities-We liked the variety, but had to pick and choose at times. We are "trivia geeks" and there were plenty of opportunities for this. We enjoyed mini golf, and the spa. We aren't really casino or pool people, but everyone seemed to enjoy these as well.

Shore excursions-There was a good variety to choose from and they seem to be well organized. We thought Labadee was absolutely beautiful and well laid out. Of all the private beaches I've been to this was my favorite.

Overall-we thought the ship was beautiful and enjoyed the cruise very much. We would not hesitate to sail on a Freedom class ship again. Our only real negative was that our TV/remote stopped working and even though we called it in, it was never repaired. Less

Cabin review: D19314 Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Loved the beds. The sofa bed was great for someone who likes a hard mattress. The other beds were soft, which was just perfect for our group. We like the shower with a sliding door rather than curtain. The location was good and reasonably close to the elevators. It was very convenient to the MDR's and library. It was very quiet. We didn't hear any outside noise. The view was great on the balcony and we found it to be a good size. There were two chairs, table and a lounger. We had three in our room and had to move our little coffee table out onto the balcony as it was too crowded when the sofa was made into a bed. We would have liked a little more closet and drawer space. For 3 women we needed more storage room for a 7 day cruise.

Port and Shore Excursions

San Juan was beautiful. We did not have enough time to do everything there was and would really like to go back there again.

We liked the port, and the shopping was good. We were surprised at how poor the country was.
