We are sailing on the Oct. 11th departure. Have been on many cruises, never this line so I am anxious to see the ship.

We booked this because of the price. I am getting the cruise w/ upgraded room, air roundtrip, all taxes, tips, travel ins. etc. for about $380.00 pp.I was going to do a 2 night cruise to nowhere on carnival and then came up with this plan becuase it was cheaper than the cruise to nowhere!!!!!

I figure how bad can it be? At least we will be on a ship headed to a tropical island....we can endure anything for a few days.

Anyone out there joining us?

Have Fun. I'll be getting off the Liberty that day.

I doubt you'll find another person going on your cruise, since many CC's don't go on IM.

I think you've overreacted to what cot427 said. I don't think they meant anything beyond what they said-- that there aren't a lot of CC members on any IM cruise. It's a small ship and when compared to the thousands that you'll find on the other ships/lines you really won't find many cc members sailing with you. I think the relative inactivity of this particular group backs that up.

I wish I were going with you (I enjoyed my sailing) and hope you have a good time.

When there's a leak in the bottom of a cruise ship, it's one hull of a problem

mbisson-
Thanks for the positive words. I look forward to being on a smaller, older ship. Years ago we sailed on The Big Red Boat several times when my son was small and I think this may be comparable. For the $$, who can beat it? It beats a weekend trip to a Carolina beach-that's for sure.

Maybe I did overreact but it does not matter. I am thankful to be able to go no matter what the ship or cruise line.I look foreward to a different cruise line also. This is the only one I have not tried yet besides Costa.

Wow. Just wow. All I meant was that not many CC'ers go on IM, that's all. It has nothing to do with being embarrassed or anything, its a cruise, jeez. I went on it and I wasn't embarrassed. I just meant you probably won't find people going with you like you would for Carnival, NCL, Princess, or Royal Caribbean. That's all.
