Default Noro Virus - Liberty

I know the ship was cleaned up and other than some isolated cases, all seems well. What I'd like to know is if the buffet lines are open and you are able to serve yourself or are servers still doing it for you ?
Also, has anyone recently done the early debarkation on the Liberty in Ft Lauderdale ? If so, how did it go?
Thanks !

I do not know about this particular ship, but last year we were on the Explorer of the Seas after an outbreak of Norovirus. They served us at the buffets. Unfortunately my parents came down with it the week we were on the cruise, but the rest of us didn't.

We did early debarkation on the Liberty in April at the Ft. Lauderdale Port. It was a breeze. From the ship to car I would say 20 minutes max.

Thanks for the information. REgarding the early debarkation, do you happen to remember (ball-park) about what time you got to your car?
9am - 10am ?

Default Buffet Lines

I sailed on the Liberty on the 1'st post-norovirus outbreak cruise on 11/21 instead of 11/19. Self-service wasn't allowed anywhere at the buffet. This included getting coffee, water, juice, tea, and ice cream. I'm not too sure if they have now continued self-service. Our cruise had a few cases of the norovirus, so I am assuming self-service is still not allowed. They also had hand sanitizer dispensers located at every place that served food.
