May 2015 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Liberty
The southern Caribbean was beautiful. The Carnival Liberty ship was so-so. The exhaust fumes were so thick you couldn't walk on the walking track which was on the upper level. The food was average. Even in the main dining room (not the buffet), the food tasted like frozen fast food. I had a grilled chicken breast that looked and tasted processed, not fresh like I expected. Therman (sp?) was a great waiter. You could smell sewage periodically throughout the ship and even in our balcony room. Although the strong smell didn't last long, it was very disgusting. Our toilet had particles that looked like coffee grounds in it even after flushing. We wondered if the smell was coming from our lavatory but smelled it throughout the ship as well. For those of us that don't "party", it was very annoying when the drunks would come down the hall at 1 - 2 o'clock in the morning, laughing, yelling and screaming. Another couple had decorations stolen off their doorway and placed on another doorway, just goes to show the drunken antics we experienced. I realize that Carnival has a "party" reputation, but if you want a peaceful experience, I would recommend another company. Overall, just a very average experience.
