7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Sail Date: January 03, 2009 Ship: Carnival Liberty Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Family (older children) Reviewed: 9 years ago
Very nice - liked the paintings on each of the stairwells.
Lighting was good - except above the rooms - difficult to read, for example, the "stage", "conservatory" .
Other than that - beautiful.
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
Cavin our waiter was wonderful, very personable.
Who ever makes the seating arrangements did a great job selecting the people at our table. All our children and a young couple (ages 20-23) all partied together in the evening. OH - the food was awesome - don't be afraid to order exactly what you want - very accomodating.

Scheduling was fine.
Quality of shows were entertaining - but just OK.
I liked the carnival legends show the best.
We did the snorkeling at Dolphin Cove. It was nice because the guides would point different things out to whoever was near them - stay close to them.
Dolphin Cove also has other activities - that anyone there can observe, dolphin encounter, sharke feeding. A family with young children could spend a good bit of time here.
Dunns River falls was awesome. Be prepared to get wet. If you think you are going to buy the video stay in the middle of the group. We were one of the first and weren't videoed at every stop.
Just keep walking through gift areas if you do not want to be hasseled to buy something.
Don't Miss: Absolutly have to do Dunns River.
We did the Ruins of Tulum.
Our guide was fantastic and made the trip.
He was really into the heritage of the Myans - he had to 2 Myan grandmothers.
We had refreshments at Margaritaville - it was quiet - not lively at all - good food and drink though.
We parasailed - excellent trip if you have never parasailed.
It went off the back of the boat. The 2 guides were very helpful and made you comfortable.
We liked this port the best - however it was 1.25 cayman coins to 1 US dollar. I wasn't prepared for this.
Pros: The service was great. The people were friendly. I don't know how Carnival can take so many diverse people and have them work as one - but they should take that recipe to outher companies.
Cons: On disemparkment - the hallways should be kept clear of food trays, laundry bags, service carts.
