What are the differances between Freedom and Liberty?
Who is the Captain, CD, Hotel Director and maitr'd?
What is the colour theme of the staterooms?
Let's see what I noticed. Sorrento's Pizza has had the "front window" display removed, and in its place is a new open bar area. I felt that Sorrento's was a bit more spacious, although that could have been an illusion. Relax, though, they still serve the antipasti, it is just displayed inside now.
The book nook (formerly next to the Cafe), is no longer. In its place you will find the future booking desks.
The art work theme is different as well. The theme is Illusion vs. Reality (or something like that -- someone will correct me). Much of the art work is very different than you'd expect. For example, behind Guest Services there are five flat panel, everchanging screens displaying artwork. And another large piece in the atrium area "reflects" what is happening on the Royal Promenade. There will be a booklet in your stateroom cataloging the art on board.
The Capt. is Hernan Zini -- and if you ask me very distinquished and handsome <G>. Got a great pic, I'll try and post (but have to see if the others in the shot say its ok).
Cruise Director is none other than: Ken Rush. I enjoy Ken.
Sorry, cannot help re: hotel director and Matri'd.
The colorscheme in regular cabins was the tea greenl/peachy tones. I think you'll recognize it.
