Swapping Sisters!!!! (nice)

Taken from Cruise Radio 


Florida recently welcomed Carnival Liberty back to the Space Coast after spending some time in Galveston, TX. In turn, Carnival Valor has left Port Canaveral and is now sailing from Galveston, Texas, where she arrived on Saturday.

The Swap

The move happened because Carnival Valor is better suited to operate at the high speeds required for the four and five-day Mexico cruises from Galveston. While Carnival Liberty has her propulsion problem, she’s better off cruising the shorter three and four-day voyages from Port Canaveral, Florida.


Built only a year apart, Valor and Liberty are sister ships with similar staterooms, as well as Fun Ship 2.0 features like Guy’s Burger Joint, Alchemy Bar, BlueIguana Cantina, and the RedFrog Rum Bar. Carnival Liberty was the first Carnival ship to undergo Fun Ship 2.0 in fall 2011.

Darn! I thought you were offering to trade YOUR sister for mine. Big Smile

Darn is right! I thought I was about to read something good!!! Yummy

Sorry to disappoint you, ctav. LOL


Galveston is one port we have not yet sailed out of. May be worth looking into!

Although I have only used a limited number of different ports, Galveston is so far my favorite. Plenty to do within walking distance (for when you get hungry waiting for the ship to show up Sad).

The only problem is the winter morning fog tends to make everything run late.

I have cruised on the Carnival Liberty and enjoy it.

We really enjoyed the Liberty too, and wouldn't hesitate to book another cruise on her.

We were booked on Carnival Liberty for next month and got swapped to Carnival Valor. Didn’t have to change rooms or anything – very easy. Happy

It's coming. Someone is going to complain that they purchased a cruise on Valor and got stuck on Liberty and wasn't told.
