On my recent Liberty cruise (May 1) Dw and I were served on the third night by a team that knew how to treat their customers. The next night and each night there after we requested that area (table 172, 174, 176) and the hostess had no problem with our request. For the rest of the week we experienced that personal service that cruisers really enjoy. The hostess received the maitre d' tip since she actually provided us with a service.
We dined @ 6:45 each night and never had to wait for a table. An hour and a half later as we were leaving the MDR there was a line to get a table.
On the Liberty there are many tables for two.
