Carnival is hard to beat when it comes to cost. Cruising on Disney, Royal Caribbean and Carnival in the past I though I knew what to expect when it came to this short getaway. Don't get me wrong we had a good time but I fear to keep cost ... Read more

Timing with track out school break made this our only option for cruising. Stayed at our usual hotel for the cruise package, but cannot honestly recommend them due to a poorly thought out policy of placing a hold of 25% of your hotel bill ... Read more

We had 19 people in our group. All but 1 stateroom was on Deck 1. There was a horrible sewage odor in the hallway and 2 of the staterooms had air-conditioning issues. Both requested fans and only one of the two received a fan. ... Read more

The overall cruise was nice - but the poor quality of the food overshadowed the entire time. Grossly overcooked meat and fish, about the driest chicken I've ever tasted and bland unimaginative sides. Apple pie that was more like jello ... Read more

Embarkation went ok, they need better organization because and more room at the counters to assist travelers. Muster was very inefficient and a waste of time. It took almost an hour for them to show us how to put on a life jacket. The ... Read more

It was about what I expected for the price - I'd consider Carnival as a low-mid line. It was during Christmas break, so there were a LOT of kids on our cruise (too many for my liking, but they can't do anything about that). Sometimes I ... Read more

While food and drinks were available almost 24 hours, the activities were poorly communicated and most events were only in the evenings between 7:30 and 11, right in the middle of our dinner hour. Prior cruises I have been on had piano ... Read more

My family and I (4 adults) have been bitten by the cruise bug, and wanted to do something a little different for Christmas. This was our third cruise, all with Carnival, as we had an excellent time on our previous two (the Paradise, which ... Read more

I chose this particular cruise to enable us to join some friends for Christmas. We had 3 cabins on the Veranda deck. Because we booked late the only way we could be together / adjacent was near the rear. We were originally booked on ... Read more

This was the 3rd Carnival Cruise for DH & I. Just us, no kids. This was the first cruise after Liberty’s transfer to Port Canaveral and the ship had just come out of 2 weeks in dry dock (we had originally booked on the Valor). ... Read more

The cruise left a bad taste in my mouth before we were even on the boat. The ship was switched from the Valor to the Liberty about a month or so before the cruise was set to sail. It changed our embarkation time from early afternoon to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was out of Galveston and 5 nights. We were not particular about what ports of call as we had not been on a cruise in 28 years and were more interested in the ship experience. Overall we had a great time and ... Read more

Every year a group of girlfriends book a cruise sailing from Galveston. We always have fun no matter whether it is a cruise or a birthday lunch. As a group total, we are nearing 100 cruises so we have cruising experience. Hats off to ... Read more

Was aboard the Carnival Liberty for a few day budget cruise. The ship is a bit dated with its older decor and its dated room furnishings but overall its to be expected with a decade+ older ship. CONS -Guys burgers were a bit on the ... Read more

I have cruised carnival twice before. I have also booked excursions before also. This was one of the worst cruises I have been on. First I asked for a room with a window because my husband hadn't ever cruised and I tried to think of ... Read more

I recently cruised on the Carnival Liberty. I was really excited about it considering we sailed on the Carnival Freedom and the ships are virtually identical. But that is where it stops, everything was so different. The customer service ... Read more
