Carnival Liberty

3.8 out of 5

Overview

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, an outdoor movie screen showing movies and live sporting events right by the lido deck pool. Like all Carnival ships, you can expect a no-frills, boisterous atmosphere shared by a diverse mix of families, couples and singles looking to mingle. Carnival Liberty sails from Port Canaveral, FL with short (and often extremely inexpensive) cruises to the Bahamas.

Sails from: Port Canaveral, Florida

Definitely enjoyed this cruise and look forward to going again in the future!! Highly recommend this ship, especially with small children! It would have been nice to do a 7-night cruise on this particular ship!!

Some good, some bad.

This cruise was fairly economical and the lower level staff were very polite and accommodating. However, on the few occasions that I spoke with mid/upper management, they were dismissive and rude. The ship was nice, but it lacked the “fun atmosphere” that I have experienced with other cruise lines.

This was a good quick getaway and first cruise for our boys. The cabin was nice size and arrangement. They had hoped there would be more to do in the teen club. We were very appreciative of the extra time in Port.

I would recommend a longer cruise because 3 days is too short to see much but it was still great! The experience was wonderful to see the Ocean, experience the sea and a new Country. Atlantis was fantastic and the Aquarium was really something to see.

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.
