Carnival Liberty

3.8 out of 5

Overview

The Carnival Liberty is a Conquest-class cruise ship operated by Carnival Cruise Line. Although it was launched in 2005, the ship received massive updates in 2011 as part of the Fun Ship 2.0 Initiative, with renovations clocking in at a staggering $900 million. New additions to the ship include restaurants like Guy’s Burger Joint, Pizza Pirate, and Chef’s Table. The Liberty is also filled to the brim with entertainment options, and is one of the first ships to feature Carnival’s new Seaside Theater, a poolside, outdoor movie screen showing movies and live sporting events. Like all Carnival ships, you can expect a no-frills, boisterous atmosphere shared by the diverse mix of families, couples and singles looking to mingle. The Carnival Liberty sails from Port Canaveral, FL with short (and often extremely inexpensive) cruises to the Bahamas.

Sails from: Port Canaveral, Florida

The cruise was okay. I will not travel back to Bahamas again. Be prepare to do lots of walking on the ship. Comedy shows not long enough. Need more actively for small kids.

I had a great time except for a few incidents with some of the employees. I would not fault the whole cruise line for a few employees. There were a lot of activities for everyone, the food was delicious, and I enjoyed my vacation.

The pictures are very expensive and if you want to drink bottled water take your own. The tours were awesome. Don't worry about tips on board - Carnival automatically charges them to your tab. I would do most of my shopping before Costa Maya.

Get up early on "at sea days" and enjoy the Sea Day Brunch in the Silver Dining Room. It was so worth it. You can always get back in bed and nap on a full tummy. Try the adults only pool and hot tub. I also ate breakfast and lunch there in that area. Emile's was always so crowded.

Plan out your day somewhat. There is so much to do, you'll miss it if you don't, but be flexible to changes.
