Wet and great!!
Carnival Liberty Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Review summaryOverall, great experience. Unfortunately, weather ran us out of both of our Port of Call and the sun ONLY came out during our sea day. But that obviously is nor Carnival's fault. Me and my wife had an excellent time, even with these bumps. Cannot expect everything to go right. I have experienced better, but it can't be the best every time. I do hope your culinary experts do a better job to better your foods. I will tell you, no one has been better than Royal Caribbean when it comes to food and after seeing a review on how they work their kitchens and pick their products, I can see why they're the best. But Carnival has the potential to be just as good or better.
Food and Dining
Felt like cafeteria food. No exotic options or attempt at a immersive culinary experience. It was literally fried chicken, mashed potatoes and pot roast. With your typical salads, breads and miscellaneous items that offer no flavors or fusions or attempt to share passion. This was my biggest disappointment coming from a culinary background myself.
Silver Olympian Restaurant
Most of my food experience was spent at the Silver Olympian and Gold Olympian, one for our breakfast and one our dinners. Both experiences were great. Waiters were amazing. But then we go back to the food. All breakfast items were perfect. Definitely had no issues there. As for the dinner items, it was a hit or miss. Some of the items ordered were great. Lots of flavor. Well cooked and great combinations. But the bad ones, definitely outweigh the good on this one. Out of the four nights, only two my meals were perfect. First night, a flank steak with baked potato... probably the worst I've ever had in a restaurant. Flank steak looked like something out of frozen meal and I could find more flavor in water (not exaggerating). Felt like cardboard. A little salt and pepper go a long way. But I could forgive that, until I cut open my baked potato... half rotten on the inside. Now on any restaurant, I would've raised hell. But honestly, when you're trying to relax on vacation, that's the last thing I need. I let it go and went finish off in the buffet where I was not even close to being better of. Let's just say, major overlook from whoever your food quality in charge is. Menu items need a big culinary review.
Toppings were great. Good flavor, except the marinara sauce. Felt like water and the lack of it on the thin crispy dough, made it seem like I was eating cheese, prosciutto and arugula on a piece of thick paper. Could definitely be better. Plus your pizza service system was all over the place. You were only at the mercy of whatever came out next. Waited 20 minutes for mine after seeing at least 18 pepperoni ones go out to whoever didn't want to wait enough for any other one.
Love Mongolian Wok's, but this one lacked the basics. Items were decent, fresh. I've never seen a single Mongolian station that doesn't use Soy sauce, so that was surprising to us and the attitude of the chefs that day, made me question the trust in my food. But hey, everyone has a bad day in the kitchen, that I know.
Guy's Burger Joint
Amazing burgers. Juicy, big and all the best toppings to have. Definitely a keeper here.
Definitely a great experience. Their burritos and tacos were delicious. No complaints there.
Venetian Palace Main Lounge
Favorite entertainment spot on this trip. Only complaint, too small. If you weren't there at least 30-45 minutes before a show. Unlikely to find a seating spot. But not the venues fault. More like the lack of great things to do, forces people to go to whatever good thing is available, which meant, full shows with no where to sit.
