Carnival Liberty

August 2013 - Carnival Liberty to Caribbean - Western

Floating Trough

We booked a balcony suite for our honeymoon, sailing the Western Caribbean to Cozumel, Belize, Honduras, and Grand Cayman. While the excursions (booked through a third party site) were excellent, and the ports were a blast, the accommodations on board the Liberty were abysmal. 1. The decor was disgusting -not that that matters to many cruise-goers. Beetlejuice had a better color scheme. 2. Much of the food was inedible, for example around day 5 the breakfast bar served leftover hotdogs chopped up with leftover sausage, and leftover ground beef, all mixed together. It was quite obvious that it was a move to get rid of food, as I 'enjoyed' a hotdog from the deli the night before. Each night at the dining room, the staff regretfully had to say that the food was pre-prepared and could not remove items (nothing was fresh to order). 3. The people 'customers' on board the Liberty were probably recruited for a free cruise at Walmart. This is not idle snobbery, there were literal gang references from some of the 'guests' and roaming herds of buffet blockers at every pass. The ship was over-booked and full of rude guests, and many of the staff looked worn out. 4. There were no benefits for paying more for a 'better' room. We were further from every place we wanted to go, and had to walk through the other cabin floors to get from end to end or to debark or to dine. There were few places to go from end to end that didn't take you through the slums of decks 1-3 which featured a parade of garbage from all of the room service they were ordering and dumping in the hall.

noMOREcarniva's Tips

Carnival Liberty Carnival Liberty - The Blue Iguana has the best food. Skip the buffets. Pay extra for the Diamonds' Steakhouse at least once. Go to the shows. Don't buy any jewelry until Wednesday. Stay away from Lido -it is always crowded, and the food is terrible. Don't buy the soda card, just buy drinks individually.
