Default Returned from the Liberty

We just got home last night from the 8 day cruise on the liberty.(eastern)
Everyday the sun was shining did have some rain at night, mostly
when we were sleeping.
The ship was very clean, food was great. We ate all our meals in
the dining room instead of standing in lines on the lido deck.
Evening shows were all pretty good.
Did not win at bingo or in the casino. Machines were very mean.
Ship was booked full not a room left. I think I heard them say
there was 3335 people on the ship plus workers.
Our dining staff was the best ever.
Any one sitting at table 574 will be taken care of for sure.
We went on a couple of tours. Made it to Megans bay this time
for a day of swimming was so busy it was hard to find a place
to lay out.
Liked cane bay better.. The beach there was wonderful.
Did not have a problem with chair hogs on the lido deck.
we found a place everyday.
We were in the first hundred to get on the ship the day we sailed.
Getting off the ship is so easy now. They will give you new tags
for getting off the ship and to take the ones going off your luggage.
You get off by zone and dont have to hunt all over for your stuff its
in the same zone number they gave you.
Have to be out of your cabins by 8:30 at the lastest and wait up on
lido deck till you are called. We were off the ship with all our stuff
by 9:30 so not much of a wait at all.
Great sale on carnival t-shirts the night before you get back to port.
2 for 20.00.
If any one has any questions just ask and I will try to answer.
formal dinner the second night, past cruise party was the fourth night
and the third was the last night.
I have all my capers if any one wants to know any thing from them.
Something new they did was let you book another cruise while on ship
and you could get up to 200.00 in credit on your sign and sail and then
had up to 5 years to take it with a hundred dollar deposit. Thought that
was cool.
We stayed at the Comfort Inn suites on south federal hwy. and it was
okay and the staff there was very friendly they picked us up at the air
port took us to the ship and then for a small fee they picked us up
at the ship when we returned and took us back to the airport.
3 blocks from the hotel in a shopping plaza you could get the trolly and
it would take you to the beach or where ever for the low low price of
50 cents. yes really 50 cents. So since we went two days early we
spent alot of time on it. Made it to the beach in lauderdale and had dinner
there twice. Great places to eat there. We could see the port from our
room and watched the ships coming in saturday morning.

Glad you had a great time. Did you happen to see the philippine band "Music Boardwalk" They are a great band and they usually do the Beatle Triubte plus play nightly rock and roll. My favorite band soo far. Hope they are still there and did you get to talk to them??? Very nice guys Thanks Mary49

Thanks for the review and tips. The wife and I are sailing on the Liberty in August.

When booking your next cruise on the ship, Did the $200.00 go toward your future cruise


Happy Sailing to all;
David

Yes it was a credit ( up to 200.00 ) on the future cruise.
Depended on what you booked.

Hi

No I did not see the philippine band or talk with them.
I must have been off doing something else..

So many things to do.
