A Year of Celebration

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

My husband and I are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary this year.  We have decided to do this in a variety of ways, starting with a quick get-away for some relaxation on the Carnival Liberty. It was a fun time, but living in Florida, we didn't think about the fact that it was winter break for those who live in the frosty North. This is a great, quick cruise...with smiling faces and lots of warm sunshine. However, if you're looking for something peaceful, this might not be the one for you.  It was pretty loud, and deck chairs were at a premium. Still, for the price, it can't be beat!

Very professional, took great care of us, and made the overall trip that much better. 

Team that took care of was Swatra, Indira, Anastasia. We were very pleased with Anastasia because her great knowledge of languages help us better communicate and get what we wanted.

Never go to Nassau

Verified Review

After visiting Nassau I'm amazed that it would even be offered as a destination for a cruise.  Not at all impressed and feel as though the money spent was partially wasted.  I'd. Ever go there again.

Carnival Liberty Feb 2017

Our stateroom 1103 was amazing. Great location, quieter hallway with not too many rooms and around the corner from Spa so wonderful smell.  Great balcony with sliding glass door and 4 beds fit comfortable in this room.  However, the evening dinner were horrible!  Service was not great overall on this cruise with over  3000 other people.  The dinners were the worst part of the cruise the food was not very good and service was awful.  We bought the soda package for our teenage girls and they had to wait forever at a bar to receive their soda and would have to go back each time for refill instead of giving them the can.  Very bad service and long long lines most of time for drinks and food no matter what time of day it was.  Nassau was amazing port and great shopping but Freeport ok but shopping more expensive than Nassau.  We loved beach of Nassau too!

Moms 84th birthday

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

I purchased this trip for my mom's 84th birthday present to take her on the cruise and celebrate. Unfortunately I was very disappointed with my accommodations on the ship. I deliberately paid additional for the large balcony after because my mom has limited ability to get around.  Unfortunately the balcony looked like the windows had never been cleaned on the outside you couldn't see through the glass you had to stand up to look over the balcony which deletes the purpose of having the balcony. Our toilet quit working we had no water pressure could not take a shower or use the restroom the morning of coming into Nassau.  The floor we were on constantly smelt like fecal disposal as if the sewage was backed up.  I am scheduled for another cruise in September and honestly regretting the decision of going on Carnival based on my experience with the ship I certainly hope it is in better condition than the liberty!

I would not go again on a Carnival Cruise.  It was too crowded, we could not get a reservation in the nice restaurant because it was booked.  The thing I liked the most was the fitness center and the wait staff in the one restaurant we could get in.

Good Overall but...

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first cruise. Wasn't sure would like cruising so we chose a short one. 

I'LL break it down. 

Ship- Beautiful. Pools, lounges etc. Were all really nice.

Service - Excellent! Staff was super nice, welcoming and did an awesome job. 

Stateroom- Very nice . Clean, roomy enough and the window was nice to have 

Food - Meh, I was wondering if this was going to be Golden Corral on a boat. Slight step above. 

Entertainment- Excellent. Great shows and comedians. The cruise director is a hoot! 

Offshore excursions - Didn't choose them. Looked overpriced and over crowded. We sought out our own Beach relaxing. Best excursion for us was to rent a car and drive to a stunning deserted beach. 

Upselling and overselling - No I don't want a watch, jewelry, booze, artwork etc. I can shop at home. 

Casino- Don't know. We never went in. 

 

Will we do another cruise? Probably not. It's not for us. Hanging out with 3000 people in a confined space is not our idea of a relaxing vacation. We'd rather a quiet cottage on an Island in Belize. 

This is a personal preference and not a criticism of Carnival.

Great Ship

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

I was a bit nervous leading up to this cruise after reading several reviews about this ship. After spending 5 days aboard it was great. The lines for food were fairly short and we hardly had to wait, the last cruise we did was on a similar ship that had several of the same restaurants and we waited 15-30 minutes several times to each lunch, on the liberty this was not the case. The only downside was the Blue Iguana was only open until 2:30 PM.  We traveled with an 8 year old and a 12 year old and they never once got board and found that there was plenty to do on the ship. We would cruise on this ship again.

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.

If you want a quiet place to relax and unwind, check out the Serenity adult lounging area. The activities around the main pool are fun to watch for a while but can be a bit much.
