Great first cruise!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date: Mar 15, 2015

We went on this cruise with open expectations and were thoroughly happy! The food was great and the service could not have been friendlier or prompt.  There was lots to do and the excursions were a blast!  I do wish that I had been given the customs rules ahead of time. There was some confusion as to what we could bring in tax free and the service desk told me wrong the first time. When I rechecked I realized that I panicked for nothing and what I bought in Puerto Rico was also tax free.  I also feel that if you put signs out that say no reserving of chairs and towels will be removed after 30 minutes you should do that.  I saw towels being left for most of the day and no one in the chairs; meanwhile families are looking for chairs.  All in all it was a great experience and I would sail with Carnival again.

Journey Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date: Mar 15, 2015

I cruised with my wife Kay specifically to see Journey.  For the price of admissions and our seat in the 4th row (right behind the VIP tickets), the cruise was a smashing success. 

I have noticed over the past decade though, the quality of food in both the dining room and on the Lido deck have fallen a couple of notches.  No more steak every night and the pizza is to be avoided if you want your teeth to remain intact.

The room and service throughout the ship was excellent as always.

OK but not what we expected

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date: Mar 01, 2015

This cruise was ok but it definitely was not what we had expected. This was our first cruise and the price couldn't be beat. But the food was just ok and the activities on board got old fast. We lost one day at Port because of wind which added to the same thing with on board activites. We are going to cruise again but definitely going to try a different ship this time.

Great Times

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date: Feb 22, 2015

The Cruise was fantastic! Embarkation and Disembarkation were done in a very organized manner. Entertainment was great! Dining at the Silver Dinning Room was a great experience; the servers: I Gusti, Iwayan and Rian were attentive, kind, and very prompt with any of our requests.

The only complaint (from Robert Tingle, my husband) refers to the ventilation in the Casino, which he considered "very poor." He actually had to go to the medical center to get a treatment for his breathing. Otherwise, everything was just great!

Not many kids on this cruise so it was lovely from the get go. This ship is pretty big so just when you've thought you've seen it all, there is something new around the corner. The cruise director is always on the overhead arranging more things to do. In St, Thomas we took a ride to the beach and it was so beautiful! We went to all of the beaches. I'd have to say stay away from the beach at Turks Island. Rocks are everywhere.

We had an awesome cruise..... it was the 50th birthday for one of my family members.... The weather was beautiful the entire cruise.... the ship was GREAT ... Service in the Golden Dining room was outstanding....If you can get lucky enough to get Ethel in the Golden dining room... your experience will be 2nd to none... The port of call for this cruise was awesome adventures for our entire cruise party....Some went zip lining and kayaking and others enjoyed a leisure experience... But all enjoyed the entire cruise.... Highly recommend taking this cruise!!!   Looking to book another cruise real soon!!!!    Big Smile

Almost Perfect, but

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date: Feb 08, 2015

Our accommodations were excellent, as we chose an expanded balcony cabin.  Our only complaint was the very very limited dinner service.  Because we had signed up relatively late, the only dinner seating option was 8:30 pm-- not feasible for us.  As a result, we ate exclusively at the Lido Buffet.  As a vegetarian, this was not a fabulous dining experience.  Our other "problem" was the cancellation of the main port of call, San Juan, due to weather.  Our only compensation for this substantial inconvenience was a refund of our port taxes.  Although we do understand that bad weather is an safety consideration, we felt that some kind of compensation would have been appreciated in the form of a modest onboard credit.  After all, that was one third of our anticipated excursion that we lost as a result.

Worth the $

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date: Dec 06, 2014

Enjoyed our cruise.  Had plenty of activities to keep us busy or if so inclined we relaxed on the serenity deck, which seemed to be unknown to most of the adults on our cruise.  Serenity had extremely comfortable furniture and 2 hot tubs and hammocks for adults to use.  The exercise room was great as was the steam room.  We didn't think the buffets were as good as Disney, but certainly filling and we loved the pizza and hamburger and deli bars.  All crew members were great!

good trip.  great cruise director.  average food..Thought shows were great except Stevie Wonder show.  Too many events in lobby so limited seats.  Photo display frustrating.  The areas off ship were not identified by port.

Nice cruise, but not what we expected.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Liberty | Sail Date: Sep 06, 2014

Ports of call were good and excursions were great. The food on buffet left a lot to be desired. Guy's Burgers were the best.  There wasn't a lot of variety in the entertainment. Plenty of bars if your into that.  Three pools but all small.  We sailed with other cruise lines and there was always something going on and great food.  First cruise we taken and not gained weight.

Popular tips for Carnival Liberty.


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.

Guy's Burgers were awesome!!!
