Carnival Liberty

Sail Date: July 03, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship has an excellent layout. My cabin was on the 10th floor forward and everything felt pertty close - spa, gym, casino, pool, shopping, camp carnival. A unique perk to the Liberty is its waterslide that takes you down 3 floors, but the pools are small.

Pros: Camp Carnival (babysitting service/kids club) was a wonderful service. Not quite as elaborate as Disney ships but my 4 year-old daughter loved, begged to go back every day, and said it was her favorite part of the cruise.

Cons: The amount of time spent at the 2nd and 3rd ports of call was a little too short (approx 8am-330pm). It would have been nice to stay a little longer.

Recommends Carnival Liberty? Yes!

Service and Staff
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Food in the restaurants (sit-down) dining was very good. The rest was good for kids - hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken tenders, fries....the usual fast fixes. If you have time, definitely go to the restaurant, quality is much better.
Cabin / Stateroom
Out stateroom had a balcony view which was quite worth it. Good size. Big enough for 2 adults to sit or 1 adult to lay and sunbathe. The crew did an excellent job of servicing the room twice a day. Left it impeccable each time.
Children's Programs
George Town, Grand Cayman
I didn't find much that interested me at this port.
Cozumel, Mexico
Must see is Tulum which are Mayan ruins situatuated literally steps from a beautiful warm clear-watered beach. Fascinating. Sort of a journey to get there though since you have to take an approx 25 min boatride then approx 45 min busride to get to Tulum. Defitiely worth it though. Just don't eat any of the local food....I did and regretted it. Tasted great but got sick.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Best thing here is Dunn River Falls. You need to be somewhat physically fit though and it's definitely too dangerous for children. But if you can do it, it's a beautiful, exhilerating hike. You walk down to the beach, then start hiking up the actual waterfalls. Many rocks are slippery and can be sharp so make sure you take your watershoes.
