Just off the Liberty a couple weeks ago. We had a great time. Your cards are in your box by the door, but yes, you can get drinks in the package with your boarding pass. I thought check in at the Orlando port was very smooth. After my research, I was excited for the Alchemy bar, and it was everything I had hoped for. The drinks there are great and it was a nice little place to just sit and chat. We met several people there and definitely the best drinks. They will make you whatever you like, in addition to the drinks on the menu. The ladies there are very creative and we very much liked Jelena.
I also liked the Blue Iguana Cantina (food part) and Guy's burgers, definitely must stops. My daughter and I split a burger and fries at Guy's so we didn't fill up and could try other things - very good.
We went to the Steakhouse first night and it was great. The value of the free bottle of wine is diminished if you have the cheer's package IMHO. I can get better wine by the glass that the bottle they will give you.
We didn't get off the ship in Nassau and really enjoyed the activities in the lobby area - trivia and yahtzee. we won Yahtzee and have a prized Carnival Liberty trophy.
The comedy club is great - as always, get there a little early for seats
I enjoyed being in the piano bar, but the guy wasn't my favorite (sorry for those who enjoyed him). He was okay - not sad we went.
There is an adult only pool, and it is monitored. The seating area is NOT adult only, just the pool.
We enjoyed breakfast in the dining room. I was disappointed in our dining room service though. it wasn't bad, but apparently my name is now Laura. only a three night cruise, we everything was fine....
Went to the show on the last evening (Rock and Roll show) and it was good.
Just enjoy.....but DO NOT MISS THE ALCHEMY BAR
