Overall, I really enjoyed our cruise onboard the Carnival Liberty. The staff -- it's like "Cheers," where everybody knows your name. Everyone we encountered was nice and hospitable. Some had a beacon for knowing if you were lost on the ship -- they recognized the "deer in headlights" look and would approach you with a helping hand. In fact, when I got lost in the gym and spa area, someone told me to always look for the green running man signs. I did that for the duration of the cruise. Helpful tips and top-notch customer service like that make a vacation memorable. We were very happy with Carnival -- the service, the price, the vacation. It was the whole package. HappyLoveYummyWinkBig Smile No frownie or angry emojis here!Big Smile

in spite of the weather, totally relaxing and most enjoyable cruise. Our  room accommodations were wonderful, the room steward was excellent. We ordered morning room service which except for the first day when they were 30 min+ early was as ordered, very staff member from customer service to bar staff etc was pleasant and accommodating. Our dining room staff was exceptional (table #440 silver / late seating) from the head waiter to assistant waiters, and the good was delicious!

Service and Staff were Horrendous

This was my 2nd cruise, the first being on Royal.  The staff on Carnival was borderline rude.  After speaking with them it's because most are overworked and unhappy.  the food was pretty good, but the service was well below par.  The best part of the cruise ship experience was the Diamond Restaurant. The staff was very professional and seated and served us quickly.  the food was really good as well.

I had issues with a very loud noise that kept me from sleeping 2 nights straight.  They finally came to fix it (after I complained twice - both nights) but their "gift" of covering our meals ($35 for me and my 2 kids) was an insult.  I came on the cruise to relax and that didn't happen.  The trip was for my son's graduation gift and my daughter's 13th birthday gift. 

Unless someone GAVE me a cruise, I would not ever cruise with Carnival again.

It was a great family getaway & my children really enjoyed it!! We are all looking forward to the next cruise!!! The only issue I had was the fact I was double charged for the onboard acct. & it still hasn’t been rectified. But, I was told to give it about 5-7 days, so I’m patiently waiting. Other than that, we were happy!!!

Terrible food

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We LOVED the suite! The ship itself met all expectations. The servuce was consistently excellent, , but the food was the worst we have ever had on a cruise.It was so bad, we would be unlikely to go on Carnival again.  Too much garam masala, curry and cinnamon in too many unexpected places. How anyone can mess up mashed potatoes and gravy is beyond me. There were a couple of exceptions: the potato salad and molton chocolate dessert were fantastic. This ship left Port Canaveral and went straight to Nassau. I would have expected it to cater to American tastes. Gravy shouldn't have cinnamon in it or be sickenly sweet. The vegetables were rock hard, much of the fruit wasn't ripe. They should give each guest a food ranking card if they want to get honest feedback and improve it. For what it's worth, we are not picky eaters and we consider ourselves to be very open minded to trying new things.  The carved roast beef  was so tough, it couldn't be cut, much less chewed and eaten. Maybe that was the plan,  so there was enough left over to repurpose into other entrees.

The first thing I did after coming back from my Bahamas trip was to plan my next Carnival trip. I enjoyed every moment of the trip and I was very impressed by the Cruise crews commitment and hard work towards ensuring a fun-filled vacation!

This was our first cruise.  I brought my 18 year old daughter as a high school graduation gift.  We had a ball and enjoyed the great food, but gained about 5 pounds!  We got an upgraded room with a balcony that was amazing to be able to sit out and watch the sunrise and sunsets and the moon and stars while eating cheesecake from room service at 1 am!  We played bingo, listened to music, watched movies in the pool, saw stage shows and comedians.  We participated in Harry Potter trivia and made special Build A Bears.  There was plenty to do to keep us busy.  The only things that didn't meet my expectations were that there was no area of the casino that was non-smoking.  We would have played if we could breathe!  We also had requested a king size bed and got two singles, but we just settled for it.  Loved the room service, and the wait staff in the dining room.  The wait staff was amazing ... personable, always happy, very accommodating.  We had problems with directions, especially at muster.  Crew did not know where different muster areas were.  We were directed to our area by several different people and went in circles for 30 minutes.  Expected to stand outside for muster for over an hour for 5 minutes of instruction -- unacceptable.  Could absolutely be better organized.  Will definitely cruise again.

Sailing Carnival for the first time, I was very pleasantly surprised.  Every crew member made an effort to make our stay as comfortable as possible.  They go out of their way to help, entertain and really go the extra mile for their guests!  Loved every minute...except having to leave!!

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.

Get up early on "at sea days" and enjoy the Sea Day Brunch in the Silver Dining Room. It was so worth it. You can always get back in bed and nap on a full tummy. Try the adults only pool and hot tub. I also ate breakfast and lunch there in that area. Emile's was always so crowded.

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