How about the Glory? We haven't been on it yet, but it appears to have most if not all of the same amenities as the Liberty.

November of 2015 is a long way off. Odds are, no one else from Cruise Critic has booked this cruise yet. Also, not everyone that books a cruise is interested in joining a roll call. And there are...

I know that many people are addicted to bottled water, but there really is no need to take water on the ship with you. The ship's water is just as good as (if not better) than most of the bottled...
