Carnival provides excellent service from day 1-4. Staff excellent,  willing to help. Nassau was ok, but Freeport a waste, still signs  of the last hurricane. Took a side trip to the beach which was ok. 

If your not a heavy drinker, don't buy the drink "Cheers" deal. Remember the house never looses. Pay as you go, in most cases you will come out ahead. 

Food was good at the main resturuant, but not as hot as I liked it. Plenty of places to eat and drink on the ship. Enjoyed all. 

Ship size was not overwhelming, always could find pool chairs. 

Overall rating 8 out of 10.

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

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.

My experience on Liberty was awesome. The ship was nice and clean, the beds were quite comfortable. Our Steward Frederick (Philippines) was very tentative to all our needs. He went above and beyond to make sure our comfort was a priority.

There was a very wide variety of good foods daily. Dinner each night was great.. Our servers Enez, Krisanas (Thailand), and Alexandru (Romania) provided service of excellence. Our excursion in the Bahamas was nice as well. Our tour guide (George) took us to some of the most interesting placing to see all over Nassau. I will definitely like to commend the entire crew for a job well done in every area. The ship captain was indeed a smooth sailor!! you could never tell when the ship was moving. The overall experience was great. I will be going again on the Carnival Liberty. Thanks to all.

Incredible Time

We had a really fantastic time on this trip! I've cruised a few times before and this was one of the better ones... Partly due to the weather... Partly due to the company... Partly due to the other passengers... This was definitely a perfect storm of possibilities that made a great vacation... The boat was great and the entire staff was exceedingly pleasant...

My wife & I enjoyed the staff & variety of Food on this cruise. The food by far is better than the MSC Ship. The only draw back is we booked a massage & it seemed like we were being pressured into buying their products. We would definitely recommend this cruise to others.

Shows not what they used to be

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I enjoyed the casino as always but the shows were not what they used to be. Also the food in the dining room is not what it used to be. This was my 3rd Carnival cruise and the previous two were great this one not so much. First if you are going to offer a drink package both people should not have to sign up. My wife drinks one glass of wine a day. Second if you are going to give away free drinks in the casino for so many points and the drinks have to be ordered by a waitress. Then please have enough waitresses on staff so you are not waiting around for an hour to get a drink.

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.
