Really enjoyed everything about the cruise! The food, the shows, the excursions even the staff (especially our waiter in silver dining & housekeeping). I would definitely recommend again to others. I think the only thing for us, since it was our 1st cruise, we felt a little lost about what to do, & how things worked. Just wish we would have had more answered questions about cokes, alcohol & other services offered.
As what the title says our first time we enjoyed laying out and being in the sun. We didn't like the time schedule for events on the ship we missed a few events because we wanted to enjoy relaxing outside at that time instead of being inside. Also did the dolphin encounter in cozumel and had fun doing that but felt very limited on time to make sure we got back to the boat in time. Lastly the all you want to eat food was always available but it was just OK the beat food was in the dining room but still again doe the majority of the food it was spectacular. The staff was very friendly especially in the skybox sports bar Kristinia and Milos they were great and very personable. Our stateroom attendant was excellent always greeting us by our first names and making sure our room was spotless. The ship was very clean at all times and all staff were friendly.
This was my first time cruising and it was a HORRIBLE TRAGEDY!!!! A life was lost on board the ship and I have had nothing but nightmares for her and her family. Although I did not witness her going overboard it was quite obvious there was foul play and Carnival is doing everything in their power to cover this up. I saw where they had the deck roped off the entire trip and it is quite obvious there was a huge blood stain as well as a broken light and broker speaker that was by the railing. I HAVE PICTURES OF IT !!!!!! She struggled with someone before she went overboard in my opinion. There is NO way I will EVER believe she climbed on that rail by herself and fell backwards. The rails lean forward after all. I'd think you'd fall forward first. I think it is a terrible thing that Carnival has not even notified the other passengers to offer counseling of some sort for us who had to experience this. Nor did they offer any type of reimbursement or discount as this had ruined the trip for everyone due to this matter. I will NEVER cruise this cruise line again because of the way they have handled the incident. If they have video of her falling , THEN BY ALL MEANS SHOW IT!!!!! She was a human being folks and someones family member. Get to the bottom of this and give them some closure...... Please everyone keep Samantha family in your thoughts & prayers!!!! CARNIVAL YOU SUCK!!!!!!
Although saddened for the unfortunate events that occurred during our cruise, we found the overall experience to be delightful. We wanted an easy, quick and relaxing get away and that is exactly what we had. The staff and crew were awesome. Our steward, Ivan, did a great job in taking care of us! We will definitely book again and soon!
The cruise ship was clean and the service was very good. The entertainment they provide is pretty sad. The comedy shows were good though. The really good thing about this cruise ship was the Guy Fieri burger place. Those burgers are delicious. We missed out on one of our ports because the captain is terrible at driving the boat and couldn't make it out of port because of strong winds.
Carnival Touts 110% satisfaction guaranteed. However for the previous month there thrusters have been broken on the Carnival Liberty. And post cruise they say it posed a safety issue. REally? They had us booking excursions all the way til they said , oh we cant go to Cozumel because the wind is too strong and thrusters are broke. so they couldn't dock or undock safely. They lied to us and prev cruisers. We missed excursion and my sis had purchased a present for me in port of Cozumel that I was to go get while on the island I was not able to get. same cruise had loose railings on boat. and we get off the cruise and the next cruise, girl falls overboard. That could have been ME or any of my girlfriends! we all look overboard to see water and fish. We are just extremely lucky it wasn't. This was my 7 cruise, Ive never had any previous issues with carnival. But this is horrible.
the liberty took out the dock in Progresso the cruise before and swung around a tug boat..
Well, my friends and I made the most of it. But Carnival needs to be held liable for putting our safety at risk, all they had to do is let us know, and pick a different port nearer to progreso.
We were scheduled to go to Cozmel but never got there. My kids gave us such a wonderful gift and we were very disappointed in the Cruse Line because we never made it to Cozmel. Our balcony was dirty and we kept getting letters saying they were going to be cleaned but that never happened, did not like going down the halls and seeing stacked food out side if staterooms for hours.
The ship was clean and pretty. The food was wonderful and our waiter, Osker, was great! He went out of his way to see that everyone in our group was taken care of and he made our dining experience fun and enjoyable. Our state room was beautiful and our room steward saw to our every need. The entertainment shows were excellent and the activity director was wonderful!! He made sure that everyone had a great time. A wonderful time on board. A big disappointment in not getting to go to Cozumel, due to a problem with the ship causing a Mexican military ship in Progresso, to break loose from the pier and as a result, damage to the pier and to the military ship! We were told that a problem with Liberty caused us to need a tug boat in Cozumel and one was not available, however we would not have any problem docking in Galveston. The ship arrived with problems and left with problems and arrived back in Galveston with problems, loaded and left again with the same problems! This is the third time Carnival has failed to take us to Cozumel. As a result, we will take another cruise liner next time!
I will not cruise on the Liberty again. This was my 3rd carnival cruise and I've taken a different ship each time. My previous experiences were great! The liberty had too many mechanical problems and we ended up not even making it to one of our stops.
The pictures are very expensive and if you want to drink bottled water take your own. The tours were awesome. Don't worry about tips on board - Carnival automatically charges them to your tab. I would do most of my shopping before Costa Maya.
