Comfortable & relaxing

This was my 4th cruise  (3rd with Carnival). My first carnival cruise was in 2008, the next 2012 & the last 2017. I could tell a big difference with the service & quality of the food declining with each cruise.  I feel lIke carnival charges less up front but with all the extra charges for every ltitle thing that it is actually more expensive than the Norwegian cruise that I took in 2015 that included so much more. The only thing that I liked better was that they played movies on the big screen every night, which gave us something that wasn't overly crowded to go or some cheesy dance performance. If you want a vacation that you can relax & sleep in your room, this vacation is for you.

Missing link

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

We found the Liberty a well maintained ship. The balcony state room was spacious and well laid out. Members of the crew we met were polite, knowledgeable and helpful. The one link needed to make everything perfect was the food. Actually we found the buffet better than the dining room. We did not expect a gourmet restaurant . However we did expect better than what we had. The prepartion left us disappointed. Other than this problem we did enjoy ourselves.

The service was great!  Everyone was very professional and attention to detail.   The only thing I feel need to be change; do not ask your passengers what time they would like to board the ship...if you going to have them to sit and wait for an hour.

Carnival Liberty Cruise Review

The ship was easy to navigate; the staff was knowledgeable, caring and went out of their way to meet our every need.  My husband is disabled and everyone went out of their way to make sure that he has comfortable, taken care of and enjoyed the cruise.  Our room steward (James) was excellent, and he made sure our room was always clean and comfortable.  The wait-staff in the dining room (Imade and his helpers) saw to our every need.  The food was excellent, appetizing and served hot and on-time.  The bar area staff made sure we had everything we wanted.  The buffet food was very good, well prepared and hot.  This cruise provided us with a needed get-away, and it was everything we wanted or needed.  Looking forward to another cruise.Happy

The comedians are always great but this cruise their schedule conflicted with late dinner seating.  It was a choice between eating in the dining room or seeing the comedians and eating buffet.  

There was no late night dessert buffet, as there has always been one on previously cruises.  They did this buffet while the ship was in port at Freeport so if you had an excursion you missed it.  

 

The cabin stewards were not up to par.  We heard a lot of complaints from other cruisers that there stewards were not leaving the items that needed to be.  We had the same problem and our cabin steward was not creative with the towel animals.  He only did the basics.

 

The rest of the crew was top notch!  Bartenders, servers

 

Not a bad 4 night get away but not the best Carnival cruise we have taken.  If this was our first cruise it would have seemed good but because it was not our first we knew what touches were missing.

Anniversary cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very relaxing 20 th anniversary cruise. Everyone was awesome. Guys burgers BBQ and sushi was delicious. Nassau had lots to offer with shopping and attractions. Freeport was a disappointment. Although Tano beach was beautiful, I felt we were given incorrect information that swayed us to go to this particular beach. We later found out that it would have been cheaper to go to the resort beach. Donkey the cruise director was the most awesome cruise director we have experienced and we have been on at least 13 cruises. Overall a fantastic vacation !!!

Cruise!

 My favorite part of the cruise was everything. I enjoyed being able to eat 24/7. Nothing really needed improvement except for everything having to cost. I don't remember ever having to pay for room service on other cruises I've been on especially with Carnival, but overall, it was great!

FABULOUS TIME... and this was not my first choice

Verified Review

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

I enjoyed a fabulous time dining with strangers, dancing, singing, trivia etc., etc., etc.  The cruise staff was superb -- YES, ALL OF THEM.  They were worthy of my additional tip.  Atlantis was beautiful but overpriced (watcha gonna do).  Freeport was gorgeous.  We did the Dolphin Encounter... excellent price and well worth my time.  Everyone is our group of about 40 people received quality time with the dolphins and a kiss.  Freeport also offered parasailing, rides on the banana boat and jet ski rental.  Unfortunately, you're not there long enough to enjoy everything so choose wisely.  Last year I flew to Honolulu and took Hawaiian cruise and had a wonderful time also.  This was a more lively crowd.

Great time

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

I thought everything was great. Staff needed to know when to tell guess what can be paid with cash and what can't be paid with cash. This was my first cruise. They all need to be on the same agenda because we was told one thing by one staff member then another will tell us something different. We missed the Captain photo because staff didn't know that we could take pictures with the captain. Purchasing the pictures we took was a too much. So not organized at all.  I will book another cruise with Carnival Liberty again for sure. I had a nice time even though these little things was not good.

Amazing

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This cruise was an amazing experience for me and my Boyfriend. To be my first cruise, it was such an enjoyable time. With a lot of activities to do . The rooms were nice and clear, even the towel animals were a great touch.  However, the only thing I did not like, was the fact about the drink packages. Where if one person in the cabin buys a drink package, the other person has to also buy this package.

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.
