It was a good sailing. Not great, but not bad either. We got a decent deal on the room, and the ports of call (w/some exceptions) were excellent. The only major complaint was that of the tendering system. Some ports of call (e.g. Cayman, Belize) dont have actual port to dock into, and you instead have to wait in line for a "tender" smaller ship to take you onto shore. The tendering process was tedious, not well organized (sticker system not useful), and wasted a large part of your port call because you spent a long time waiting to get off the ship and then had to be back extra early to get back on the ship. Honestly, you are almost better to not even get off the ship on those ports. One exception is if you are scuba diving, as you may have a boat come specifically to pick you up.

Pros: Breakfast Burritos, Burgers, State Room, Steakhouse

Cons: Tendering System, Buffet and regular Dinner

Recommends Carnival Liberty? Yes!

Service and Staff
hit/miss. Some great staff, but the majority seemed tired and were on the last leg of their tours/contracts.
Food and Dining
The new burger joint (guy's) is outstanding we ate some every day. The buffet and regular dining room were so so. The steakhouse was great. Aside from the Burger/Burrito joints, it seemed like we always missed the other hours for food.
Cabin / Stateroom
Excellent. Double sinks, powder room, balcony, spacious, and clean.
hit/miss. The comedy club had 4 different comedians. 2 where good (one was great!, Alvin or Marvyn something or other was hilarious), the rest were so/so to crappy.
Ship Quality
Ship was clean, and the stateroom was quite spacious.
