Great time; great service!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date:

I had a great time on this cruise.  I've only traveled on Carnival since they always seem to be the cheapest and I don't need any more luxury than what they provide.  The staff were outstanding especially at dinner.  Oscar made sure we had everything we needed at the table while Israel made sure we had the perfect drink!  Both men were a lot of fun to hang with during our dinner times.  

The only thing I would change is that I got a massage on the ship.  Don't do that.  You can get massages on the beach for cheaper and on the ship they do a sales pitch on their products once you're done.  Nothing kills your relaxation like a sales pitch.

I will definitely do this cruise again!

our anniversary cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date:

The cruise was very enjoyable & the tours were great! We especially enjoyed the cave tour & visit to the valcano mud bath. The food was the best & the Mongolian stir fry addition was very good health wise. The dining personnel were excellent & gave us a special desert & song for our special day.

Great Family Vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date:

Pretty good ship.  We relaxed, eat alot and had a bunch of fun.  The Carnival Camp is amazing.  My 3 year old had a blast with all the activities they do with the kids.  I wish they had that much activities for us.  I hate the smoking in the casino.  Bot even I smoke free day. :-(   The shows were good but could be better.  The food was amazing.

Lots of ports

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date:

If you don't enjoy sea days, this is the cruise for you.  We arrived a day early in San Juan and were able to explore the port.   With only one sea day, we were in a different port every day.   One beach was more beautiful than the last.   Carnival has stepped up their game; because of all the competition.  My family of twelve had lots of fun..(seven grandkids)

my vacations i

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date:

I enjoy this cruise a lot. Everything inside was good. The islands, they need change for others. The most beautiful are St. Marteen and St. Thomas. Make change to other routes are more interesting for people that want to visit or know diffrents islands.

Perfect room, perfect service, perfectly amazing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date:

Always receive excellent customer service from carnival. Room was kept spotless and we were asked anytime our room steward saw us (at least 2-3 times a day) if everything was alright or if we needed anything. Service in the dining or bar areas is amazing, never more than a 2-3 min wait. Everything is always sparkling clean and always a smile and greeting from staff.

First time on a cruise...first time in the Southern Caribbean...LOVED it!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date:

OK...so...I will say that not only was this my first time in the Southern Caribbean, but also my first time on Carnival...  DEFINITELY a MUST DO AGAIN!!  

 

We booked our cruise through .  As it was my first cruise, I was nervous about booking online, so I called the 1-800 number.  I was connected with the MOST helpful person, Joelle...she was FABULOUS!!  Joelle helped answer questions, gave recommendations, got us to a great room, and generally was patient with me.  After I had booked, I even called her back to help with the transfers to/from the airport and asked about a few shore excursions (one of which I booked on this website...which was the best excursion we had on the vaca).  

 

Overall, the trip was INCREDIBLE!!  But...how could it not be given the scenery.  The ship was relatively crowded, but we learned that the week that we went was a "holiday" week for the folks in Puerto Rico.  LOTS of kids and families, which is great if you are looking for that.  Some of the activities, decor, and general ambiance were a bit dated.  Again, not a major issue, but definitely noticeable.  I would definitely do this or a very similar cruise again!!

Flooded Room

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date:

2 days into our cruise there was a water pipe that busted and flooded our room at 3am, Woke up thinking we where sinking. Spent the whole morning on a sofa in the hallway with no answers from any of the crew members. I understand things happen but they obviously had no plan in case of any emergency like this. We had a room with a veranda on the 8th floor and got bumbed down to 1st floor interior room, very disappointing. At least get me an equal or better room but we had no choice but to stay with what they gave us. Our whole vacation got ruined and they did nothing to help but refund us a couple of days for the inconvenience. I think they should have given us a full refund plus a free cruise but apparently they don't give a crap.

Fun trip

We upgraded to a balcony room and really enjoyed the trip.  Saw a mongoose on St. Johns on the park tour, and met some interesting people on the shore excursions.

Popular tips for Carnival Liberty.


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.

Plan out your day somewhat. There is so much to do, you'll miss it if you don't, but be flexible to changes.

We do take sodas and water on board, $4+ for a can of Coke is a bit much, but typical of all lines. The support staff in the spa were great. Often so cold on board that a light jacket felt really good. Nothing unpleasant per se.
