We are experienced cruisers who enjoy being on the ship. This cruise was a quick trip to the Bahamas that was inexpensive. We are able to drive down to Port Canaveral in about three hours so it is convenient. Our embarkation was ... Read more

This was our 40th anniversary celebration cruise (and our 9th cruise overall). We read many poor reviews lately, but wanted to do this anyway. The Carnival Liberty is not a brand new boat, so don't expect it. It looks like any other ... Read more

This was my 8th cruise, 4th with Carnival. I love cruising. We went on a quick 3 day from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas. The overall experience was unpleasant. We had fun, don't get me wrong, we enjoyed the 2 shows - they were great! ... Read more

The price and time were the main reason for this cruise. My sister was down from New Hampshire and needed some R and R. The medical staff was great . My sister was dizzy soon after we got on board. They got her a wheel chair , took her ... Read more

Took this short cruise just to get away for a few days. Port Canaveral is a nice port and embarkation is usually fast. This time we arrived about 11 AM since that was the first shuttle our hotel had, so they were already doing embarkation, ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a get away and reunite cruise with old friends we haven't seen in a long time. Originally booked on the Valor and switched to Liberty. Sister ships and all basically the same except no Fun Hub. This was a ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we were taking along first time cruisers. A three day was chosen so that if cruising wasn't their ideal vacation, the newbies weren't out too much time or money. We are Florida locals, so we didn't do anything in ... Read more

I live in Florida and arrived in Port Canaveral the day of the cruise. Debarkation was quick and we were onboard in less than 5 minutes (priority boarding). This was the first time we have sailed on the Liberty. Our luggage took ... Read more

First embarkment and disembarkation was great! Port Canaveral is a great spot. The cruise was on Carnival. If you expect lectures and a large library on board, boy did someone sell you the goods. The ship is fine. Its clean and ... Read more

We choose this cruise because it was a slightly bigger ship than what we've cruised on before with Carnival. I must say that we were disappointed that the shops onboard didn't offer a lot to shop for. It seemed to us that the smaller ships ... Read more

I have been on eleven Carnival cruises, but all were on Fantasy Class ships.I booked the Valor just to try something different. We were switched to the Liberty because of propulsion problems. This caused some concerns as we had aft cabins ... Read more

12 of us (over 55) get away every January just to play cards, catch up and enjoy being together. I saw all the mixed reviews and had little expectations for this cruise. Liberty is not a high class ship but it was fun! The food exceeded ... Read more

I never sailed on Carnival so I thought I would give it a try. Was not happy. First off I had read a recent review and the complaints were the windows being so dirty you couldn't see out of them and a sewage smell in the ship. yes I did ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was a good deal for a balcony cabin. We had always wondered about those huge balconies aft of some cruise ships and we were able to book the aft most starboard cabin. We had a balcony with 3 lounge chairs and ... Read more

My wife and I have now been on 26 cruises. I read many reviews on the Liberty while researching this past cruise. And I would have to say that most were extremely negative and very harsh. I was getting concerned on this except that I knew ... Read more

Last minute change from Valor to Liberty wasn't a problem. We were on the Valor last May and the only difference between the two boats are their names. We were traveling with another couple and wanted to keep the same cabins next to each ... Read more

This was my second cruise. I read a lot of reviews prior to my cruise and so many of them were very negative, I did not encounter any negative experiences whatsoever. The food was abundant and of good quality. Dining in the Gold Olympian ... Read more

Ship rocked and vibrated more than our last cruise ship but not bad. No storms but a bit windy. Food and pools are mostly on deck 9 which gets crowded. The cabin was on deck 1 - not recommended due to constant engine noise. Dining room: ... Read more

Chose this as a "wonder what it is like now" cruise because the Bahamas was our first ever cruise many years ago - i.e.40. Chose Carnival because it went to both Freeport and Nassau and was relatively inexpensive. This was first ... Read more

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
