April 2015 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Liberty
Moderate level of luxury
The cruise was fun and the food was average at the buffett and not much better at the dinning, though presentation was much nicer. The staff at the dining and all around the ship are well trained in helping/catering to the guests. The cabin while on the first deck forward was clean quiet and had a great view of arriving at ports in morning (ocean view) Plenty of room for clothes etc.
The entertainment was lacking for dancing and just music. Some of the performers were not much better than karaoke grade, the exception being the comedy acts. On deck 5 to get anywhere you had to pass through the smoky ( not nice) casino and that was an area that offered some dancing before 11pm. Pictures….Carnival... get a grip on this "feature"……many of the photo spots (and there was a zillion) spread themselves in the walkways becoming a hazard in normal time…..what if there was an emergency and the aisles were blocked.
Overall agreat time for our group of eight, didn't expect high end ….didn't get it.
Great ports of call, but I would have liked more time at each to get a better feel for the islands…maybe 2 days which allows nite experiences (turtle walks) local entertainment….not the port stuff.
