Carnival Liberty Overview

By - Updated Sep. 23, 2019

Carnival Liberty is a typical Carnival Fun Ship packed with enjoyable amenities for every type of traveler. In 2011, the 6-year-old Liberty received a massive makeover, which kicked-off the $2 billion fleetwide Fun Ship 2.0 program that's upgrading every Carnival ship in the fleet. From top to bottom, Carnival Liberty features the latest amenities, including all-new entertainment, eateries, and even more bars and nightlife.

On the top decks, you'll find the Serenity retreat, which is a tranquil spot for adults-only. The upper decks are also home to the miniature golf course and jogging track as well as the Camp Ocean activity center and the full-service Spa Carnival. The ship's Lido and Panorama decks feature two main pools, a multistory waterslide, and a variety of complementary and specialty eateries, including the main buffet, a casual dining marketplace, Diamonds Steakhouse, and Guy's Burger Joint.

In the evening, explore the lower decks, which are home to the Golden and Silver Olympian main dining rooms, the Club O2 teen lounge, several entertainment venues, and the Czar's Palace Casino. Liberty has an excellent selection of entertainment ranging from stand-up comics handpicked by George Lopez to fast-paced musical revues held in the three-level Venetian Palace lounge. During the day, Carnival hosts quirky poolside competitions, but there's plenty of after-dark fun for adults at the RedFrog Rum Bar, Alchemy, the BlueIguana Tequila Bar, and the Hot & Cool Nightclub.

Carnival Liberty cruises to the Bahamas from Orlando's Port Canaveral year-round. The ship specializes in 3- to 4-day getaways that let you satisfy your wanderlust using fewer vacation days. Liberty's itinerary program includes stops in Nassau, Freeport, Half Moon Cay, and Princess Cays.

1215 Carnival Liberty Tips

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

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.
