March 2016 - Carnival Liberty to Caribbean - Southern
We just got back off the 12 day repositioning cruise (San Juan to Galveston) on the Carnival Liberty. We enjoyed the cruise very much. The itinerary was great with great ports (St Thomas, Granada, Barbados, Tobago (they could have skipped this port), Aruba and Grand Cayman) and 5 sea days. Just a quick summation. Many, many diamond members on this cruise and an equal number of Platinum. Food was outstanding Service was just as good as most of the staff tried calling you by name as they get it. Shows, left a lot to be desired, BAD would be a better word. Punch liner was good except for one comic who did the EXACT same show at the EXACT same time 2 days in a row. And when people walked out he insulted them. BOO Ship was pleasing and never really felt crowded. We spent most time on the Serenity deck using the hot tubs at night a couple of times by ourselves. They had a private meet the Captain for Diamond, but also another for the others. BTW, this was a Carnival Throwback cruise where they had midnight buffets etc I also celebrated a birthday on the cruise and Carnival sent some nice things to my room. Gave me a $50 spa card which my DW enjoyed. Talked to many people as we had Anytime dining and most agree, we want tablecloths back. We always asked for an extra napkin to put our silverware on. Sort of reminded us we might be eating at Arby's instead of a formal dining room on a cruise.
