San Juan Carnival Liberty

Sail Date: April 12, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Our first room was one level above a very loud bar.  We went to customer service and complained, 2 days later we were told there was another room we could move to.  This room was one level below the swimming pool. We heard running water all night at 2:30 am my boyfriend called and very nicely said this room was worse than the first room and we would much rather hear loud music until 12:00 than running water all night.  Someone came at that time and listened to the noise.  When we got back from our day out we had a message that said we could have our old room to sleep in and the one we were in, as well.  We did receive at $82. discount each. 

The buffet food was not very good and always the same.  We were not very impressed. 

I have been on six other cruises with Holland America and Princess Cruises.  We would probably not go on another cruise with Carnival again.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Diningroom was good but buffet was terrible. Eggs were never cooked well and the food was always the same.
Service and Staff
Compared to Princesses Cruise line, Carnival was poor.
Children's Programs
I didn't have children with me but saw and heard about the variety. Looked good.
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Love the destinations and the 2 excursions we went on with Carnival was good.
Cabin / Stateroom
We were right above a very loud bar. Then moved to another room 2 DAYS later that we were told "We would never put you in another noisy room" BUT it was right below the pool and we heard running water ALL night.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
