You know... I was told to look on cruise critic to see what previous passengers had to say and I was a little worried. Why people said what they said about the Liberty is beyond me. I was on level 1 which is probably the least ... Read more

I booked this cruise along with one of my friends and their family members. This was actually my second time cruising, but my first cruise with Carnival. My overall trip was okay, but it definitely wasn't that great for me to want to ... Read more

It was a amazing time. The weather was great in April. Let me start with the customer service. I purchased the Faster to Fun pass which was amazing. We boarded and disembarked early and went pass many lines which made the trip stress free. ... Read more

We chose Sunshine for the dates and things on board. We had 2 cloud 9, deck 11 balcony rooms that were set up for our 3 boys in one (ages 11, 11, and 8) and my wife and I in the adjoining room. Rooms were spacious and the balcony was ... Read more

I've been on a number of cruises and when it comes to my vacations, I'm definitely a "glass half full" kind of person. I believe that any vacation can be ruined, or enjoyed, based upon how one chooses to deal with any given ... Read more

We wanted a trip of less than a week for our intro to cruising and the Liberty's itinerary was just about perfect. The first 2 days were at sea and there were loads to do. We expected the common areas to feel cramped. However, apart from ... Read more

This was my very first trip on Carnival and possibly my last. I was told to try other Carnival ships before avoiding them all together but I don't know if I want the hassle. The people and vibe on the ship was great, but...... First off, ... Read more

This was my 1st cruise EVER. I traveled with my daughters age 14 and 20. We had an interior cabin, 2 floor twin beds with 1 overhand twin bed. The room is small but enough room for the 3 of us with luggage. Adequate closet space to ... Read more

We boarded in 30 minutes flat from shuttle to the port in Charleston to the ship. We had picked an early boarding time (11:30 a.m.) so this may have helped. We took a shuttle from our hotel with free parking for our car during the ... Read more

We decided to do a last minute vacation for my son's spring break. Carnival had a good price and the port was only a couple hours drive. Getting on the ship was easy and the staff was friendly. The cabin was a decent size and the bed ... Read more

I regularly receive free premier cruises from Carnival and that is why we chose this particular sailing. It's tough to beat free, but if I had to pay for my Carnival cruises, I would really have to look carefully at the value vs the ... Read more

Baltimore Port could use a facelift. Arrival time should go back to 9 or earlier. Steakhouse was great as usual. Cowboy Steak for me! Best Shrimp cocktail at Carnival's steakhouses. Chianti brand changed to one not as good as the ... Read more

I paid for the faster to the fun which was helpful in getting us on the ship quickly. The safety brief took over an hour 1/2 to complete and was not very helpful, just a lot of waiting around. We made the mistake of going during spring ... Read more

This was my second Carnival cruise, but the first for my husband and kids. I was very discouraged after the switch from Valor to Liberty, and the bad Liberty reviews didn't help at all. Every week I would visit different sites hoping to ... Read more
