OK, but nothing special

Sail Date: October 01, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

Nice newer ship, we had a balcony cabin - well worth the cost!
We cruised in the Glory two years ago and the Liberty is nearly identical. Getting around the ship well took a day or two even after being on a similar ship. We cruised with our 14 yr old son and our cabin was equipped with a fold down "Pullman" bed that folded into the cabin ceiling when not in use and a sofa that also could be used as a bed. Even with the extra bed it took our cabin steward 3 days before he left enough towels or glasses for 3 people. I will agree with one of the other reviewers there were not enough activities for the 10 - 14 yr olds in the Camp Carnival program. The food and service on this cruise was not up to par with the other cruises we have been on from the dining room and staff to the house keeping. Things seemed a little disorganized from time to time and the guests were not always their main concern.

Pros: Balcony Cabin

Cons: Food quality/so so service

Recommends Carnival Liberty? Yes!

Food and Dining
The menu choices were noticably narrower then on previous cruises. Several items both from the main dining room and the buffet were of very poor quality. There is enough selection on both no one will go away hungry.
Service and Staff
The service on this cruise was not up to par with the other cruises we have taken. We had some issues getting the correct number of towels for the cabin to being told there was no topping for ice cream available in the main dining room, when the kid sitting at the table next to us was eating a banana split. - they had a different waiter.
Ship Quality
Great! Alway clean and well kept, getting around the ship was not a problem.
Cabin / Stateroom
Fantastic! our cabin was very quiet, the beds great and the view awesome!
The shows were good, some of the other activities are also very nice - try the afternoon tea and live classical music!
Children's Programs
The main reason we cruise with Carnival! Their Camp Carnival program is great. This year our son was in the 12 to 14 year age group, being at the upper end of the age range he was bored with Camp Carnival, but too young for their teen program.
