This was our first cruise. We can't wait to go again! The staff was amazing, so polite and always willing to help us with whatever we needed. The boat was very clean. Our housekeeper, Hermo, always called us by name. The food was good....nothing to rave about. It was an excellent birthday surprise for my husband's 40th! We did the beginner's scuba diving in Cozumel. ...we are hooked! It was so fun and our instructor, Bruno was amazing! In Progreso we took the Mayan Ruins tour....absolutely beautiful!!
The excursion we booked was excellent. The staff was very focused on making it a positive experience. The cabin (Balcony) was adequate for a comfortable cruise experience. Steward and all staff members were very conscientious of doing a good job.
We had a great time on this cruise. Have been on ships with larger state rooms (we had a balcony suite on deck 8, mid ship-8335), better food choices, more activities, bigger shopping mall, but this had to be the friendlies crew and most fun cruisers for any cruise we have ever taken (and we've been on several). Will certainly cruise with Carnival again! We plan to check out the Magic and other Carnival ships on our next vacations. The excursions we booked were great as well.
Webster knew my name and greeted me every time he saw me. At dinner we had June and Annalynn. And they were just great. I cant wait to cruise again. Webster, June and Annalynn made our cruiser just that much better. And the bar tender Edwin was great!
We had an enjoyable cruise. All the employees were great. Always smiling, always helpful, always personable (remember your name and call you by it). The room was well kept. The casino is a smoking area, however, the ventilation is not the best. Overall, enjoyed the experience.
My favorite part of the cruise was that it was completely and totally stress free!! A true vacation in my eyes is when you have absolutely nothing that you have to think about, & this cruise did a great job of ensuring that was the case.
The improvements to make this cruise excellent are minor & may have more to do with the affiliates on the ship rather than Carnival itself. Those items were: Golden Olympian restaurant dinner was not that good; 2 nights I had fish & it was horrible, the spa is way too expensive, they should include available classes with prices for the gym inside the Fun Times daily guide, when giving out free gifts; like spa gift cert or wine, extend the use until the duration of your trip because most people will not look for an expiration date on these items & the spa needs to be booked about 2 days ahead of time. The worst part of the entire cruise is the "photo process" It's absolutely ludacris!!! We're in the age of technology, there's no reason for people to have to look through pictures of everybody on the boat to find the one of your party. I don't know if that's supposed to be fun, but they definitely need to streamline that process where you can put your cabin number or name in & it will pop up on your TV or picture kiosk.
To all carnival Liberty staff and crew you are the best of the best.
You all have made our anniversary/birthday vacation the most memorable fabulous fantastic and fun. Words can not be enough to say how wonderful you all were. We appreciate and salute all staff and hard working crew and we appreciate each and everyone of you for the fabulous 5 days we spent with the carnival Liberty family.
improvements......muster was lengthy/hot.....know it's necessary.....but maybe could be handled in small groups.....,as long as people know where to go. gonna be a nightmare regardless of procedure if needed anyway.
also....have local channels. in this case alot of texans missed the texan/cowboy football game.
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.
