The Carnival Liberty is a very clean and nice ship. The layout is a little confusing and the ship is difficult to walk around. The first couple of days at sea were rough and no information was given by the staff on what to do. Several people were hurt with head injuries. The capatain never told us how rough or long the duration of the bad weather would last. The second day the ship did make an announcement not to walk in heels and always hold on to handrails. This should have happened the first rough day. Most travelers missed the captains night as there were several sea sick passangers. After the first couple of rough days the cruise was wonderful. Costa Rica is absolutely beautiful for anyone that enjoys nature. I was a little disappointed in Panama as the only real tours are that of the canal. I did not realize until the cruise that Panama was dangerous. Ample warnings were given every day from the staff and the daily news letter to not wander in Panama on your own.
As a tip, unless an adult drinks a lot of soda, the soda card is not worth the expense. Canned drinks were reasonable so if you want one or two a day the soda card is a waste of money.
