I had $100 stolen from my wallet in my room while at dinner. The entertainment, especially the comedy was bad. The engines were so noisy they kept us up all night. The crew was rude and after traveling for 2I hours because our united flight was delayed 9 hours, web were forced to sit and wait in the lobby for 2 hours, no one Helped us with our luggage, we were then sent to the auditorium where we had to endure a 15 minute safety briefing. The line to get breakfast in the Lido was 30 minutes with rude people cutting in front. There were way to many people. The ship was dirty and worn. You can not talk to guest services on the phone. You get an recording, if not a busy signal. We had to call housekeeping twice to clean out room, because they skipped it over. That line was mostly busy also. There was trash and stuff everywhere. The general use bathrooms were not clean the pools are small and there is no way to get a seat near one. I can go in and on. The line to get back on the Ship was up to an hour in the blazing sun. It was a free for all, no organization at all. No crew helping outside. People were cutting in line and extremely rude. This was a cruise full of low life people. Don't cruise carnival. You have been warned.
I went on this trip with my mom. Both of us had a great time. The staff was always very helpful and cordial. The live Latin band- Toda la banda was great. We really enjoyed listening and dancing to their songs. The food was varied and delicious.
i give a 2 star because i did not expect to have smoking in the late night club area , especially when there is only on board. It was extremely hard for me , someone who is allergic to smoke to deal with. The bathroom in certain areas of the ship had a foul odor , not pleasant. i would recommend to have a separate smoking area ( room ) for people who attends the clubs on board. The staff was not as friendly on board a the other cruises i have been on, its kind of dissapointing.
This was my first cruise and it was honestly amazing. We took a family trip for my mom birthday and she had a great time with the family. I can't wait for my next cruise, counting the days already . I might try a different cruise ship for my next cruise tho. The Carnival Liberty was great but I believe they need to do some updates to the ship, need to have a photo package and a bit cheaper so more people can buy their family memories.
With all said and done the trip was truly amazing.
My fiance and I just came back from our very first cruise! We were amazed at how attentive everyone was, from the cruise director to the waiters and housekeeping staff. Everyone was professional and friendly. We are looking forward to going on more cruises in the future!
The Liberty was an awesome ship! The food was wonderful. We were in the silver dining room and our head waiter, Alfredo was great. Great staff all the way around. Felipe, the cruise director was so much fun. We had a balcony stateroom on the Empress deck and it was nice and quiet. Slept like a baby! This ship has an adults only deck called the Serenity deck and it was great place to relax in the sun. Every night we had a great show to enjoy by the Carnival band and dancers. Enjoyed visiting all the Islands and would take this cruise again.
While on this cruise, I wanted to buy jewelry. The Cruise Ship Liberty has a personal shopping Director. This was the best shopping experience I have ever had. His name is Dustin, and he gives personal advice and direction prior to each port of call. He even followed up with me several times, to see how I was doing. This service and his excellent work, made my cruise more enjoyable.
overall the cruise was very good, the staff, food, entertainment was great. the ship pictures are expensive and so is the alcoholic beverages. If you keep tabs of your expenses you will have a good trip without any surprises. The different islands visited were good, some better than others, but overall good. On board the ship was very nice and I have to repeat, the staff was outstanding. I would definitely go on a cruise again with Carnival.
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.
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.
