The inaugural voyage of Liberty is over, and from what I have been told it was a smashing success. They did have some high winds and seas for a couple days but the ship rode well.
Lil Lori: RCI was paying attention to complaints about last year's Freedom inaugural lacking "special" things for the first cruise. Those on the Liberty got a ton of commemorative stuff...backpack, inaugural pin, tote bag, photo, box of truffles, ball cap, and a couple other items. Also, everyone got a free cruise CD on the last night. Ken Rush was the CD, in his role as part of the "take out" crew for new ships.
