7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 30, 2008
Ship: Carnival Liberty
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

We thought the Carnival Liberty was a beautiful ship! Although there were many people onboard, there were areas you could go and relax with very few people around (including the balcony of our room!) The staff could not have been more helpful, we always felt pampered and special. We got lost quite a few times but always ended up finding our way, and enjoying it immensely! The shows were professional and very entertaining. The food was very good, especially in the Supper Club, a venture which was well worth it! There were activities for all ages, all areas of enjoyment, active, or educational, or excercizing your brain!!! Or, you could relax with a book and enjoy the sea air. We traveled during a time of hurricanes, but never felt any rough seas. The only thing that happened when a storm threatened was the reversal of our itinerary, which wasn't inconvenient at all! The dining room was even entertaining, especially the head waiters who work so hard at pleasing all the guests. Essentially, we loved all of it!

Jamaica is a beautiful island although some of the areas reflect the poverty that is present there. We visited Coyoga Gardens, a lush tropical botanical garden, and of course Dunn's River Falls, which is so overrated! We chose not to climb it, and were glad we did. People were falling and some were hurting themselves. Those rocks are slippery! But once you take a picture of it, you've pretty much seen it all! And the people there follow you around relentlessly to buy all their little chachkes, very annoying!
Don't Miss: Cayoga Gardens. Dunns River Falls, only if you haven't been there before.

The snorkeling was great! We saw a variety of fish, and the tour guide was pleasant and made sure everyone was safe and enjoying themselves. Don't go to Carlos and Charlie's which is convenient but very pricey! Our lunch of tacos and tortilla soup cost us 65 dollars!!! It was inconvenient to have to go through the shopping mall to get to the town. Once you are in town the shopping is better, and you are able to bargain. The people seem friendly most of the time, and most of them speak English.
Don't Miss: Don't miss the snorkeling, if you can do it!

We thought the turtle farm was really interesting, as we are nature lovers. We had our picture taken holding the sea turtles (you can also take them with your own camera, and aren't obligated to buy theirs) The dowtown area had lots of good shopping. The town of "Hell" is a waste of time, although the rock formations are interesting. We had more interest in this huge lizard that was in the tree overlooking the rock formations!
Don't Miss: The Turtle Farm

Pros: Lorraine at the Piano Bar, the spectacular shows, meeting new friends in the dining room, there were always deck chairs available, the total relaxation of it all!!!!

Cons: the embarkation process was long and tedious, despite doing some of it online; the pool deck was scorchingly hot!, the pools were small and very crowded, lack of trash cans near the elevators and on the deck areas, the lifeboat drill was outside, very hot and crowded.

Recommends Carnival Liberty? Yes!
