January 2016 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Liberty
OK...so...I will say that not only was this my first time in the Southern Caribbean, but also my first time on Carnival... DEFINITELY a MUST DO AGAIN!!
We booked our cruise through . As it was my first cruise, I was nervous about booking online, so I called the 1-800 number. I was connected with the MOST helpful person, Joelle...she was FABULOUS!! Joelle helped answer questions, gave recommendations, got us to a great room, and generally was patient with me. After I had booked, I even called her back to help with the transfers to/from the airport and asked about a few shore excursions (one of which I booked on this website...which was the best excursion we had on the vaca).
Overall, the trip was INCREDIBLE!! But...how could it not be given the scenery. The ship was relatively crowded, but we learned that the week that we went was a "holiday" week for the folks in Puerto Rico. LOTS of kids and families, which is great if you are looking for that. Some of the activities, decor, and general ambiance were a bit dated. Again, not a major issue, but definitely noticeable. I would definitely do this or a very similar cruise again!!
