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

I sailed on the 3/9/17 cruise to Nassau. It was a 3 day cruise that left from Port Canaveral. I am 25f and went with a group of 7 other women for my best friend's bachelorette party. Almost all of us have been on multiple Carnival ... Read more

This was my first cruise in the US. We paid 299 each for a balcony room. The room was huge compared to my cruise on Princess. There was a long bench built into the wall, and plenty of storage place. My one complaint about the room is that ... Read more

This was a 3 night Carnival Live cruise with a Tim McGraw concert. I wasn't sure if I would be disappointed in such a short cruise and it not being on a Dream class ship, but it turned out to be close to perfect. This is the first ... Read more

We took this cruise because of the Tim McGraw concert series. There's nothing really fancy about the ship itself. Our cabin was an inside cabin which is pretty much like any other ship in their fleet. The pool area was nicer than others ... Read more

The boat really does not have that many fun things to do, pretty much only the casino. The pools are small, the food in the dining room was AWFUL, we ate there the first night and it took a total of 2 hours. It took forever to get anything ... Read more

I have sailed Carnival in the pas (Valor, Conquest, Freedom), but have graduated to a more premium line now that I do not cruise with small children. But, when the Carnival Live announcement came out and I saw Tim McGraw was going to do a ... Read more

We (my wife and I) took a short cruise on the Carnival Liberty to the Bahamas, which was fairly relaxing. Outwardly, the cruise was like most of the others we have taken, but apparently, Carnival has enthusiastically joined the world of ... Read more

My family and I sailed on the Carnival Liberty out of Port Canaveral and returned this morning so I thought I'd write a review before the details become too fuzzy-wuzzy and, yes, he was a bald bear. Anyway, we started out arriving at ... Read more

I am a relatively new cruiser and this was my third cruise in the past 2 years. The first two were on Royal Caribbean (Freedom and Enchantment). I am a relatively conservative middle-age professional and was warned that Carnival can be a ... Read more

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
