Sail Date: April 23, 2016
Ship: Carnival Liberty
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9233
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This was my first cruise and although I love the ocean, I discovered that I love the ocean, I do so from the shore and find being ON the ocean in a boat with thousands of others is not my thing. I don't do photos.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Most things were good, several were excellent and just a couple (the hash brown nuggets) were just awful. Some of THE BEST VODKA martinis ever.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
I don't gamble and the pools were, for me, too noisy and crowded. The show were okay, but kind of 2nd class.

Children's Programs

No kiddos traveled with us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was wonderful. Kind, professional, friendly. Had a problem with the shower and the maintenance staff member came immediately, fixed it and was very nice. Occasionally we had language issues.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Ship was a bit messy and less than shiny clean. The rooms, however, were clean and rather spacious. Old decor which can only be described as garish.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Pleasantly surprised by how much storage there was, the size of the bathroom and the room in general. The balcony could have used some attention in terms of paint and polish.....

Ship Tip

If you suspect (as I did) that you wouldn't like a cruise, listen to your inner voice.

Take the Bar Hop - not offered by Carnival - contact on line. Great tour that includes a little history of the island, a nice ride through protected areas with great day-bars with good food and great views instead of a bunch of drunks riding around getting sick.
