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

Remember you get what you paid for and on Liberty that is exactly what you get. The overall service was average - some crew members friendlier that others. The ship had several minor technical problems ( could not reach full cruising ... Read more

Never sailed Carnival before and thought we give it a try and WE WILL NEVER AGAIN! At first we were very excited to board the ship. We got on they had drinks ready to go and the buffet was open. We then settled into our room and enjoyed ... Read more

My wife and I went on a cruise for our 13 year wedding anniversary. This was our first cruise and we had no idea what to expect. We chose Carnival because several friends recommended them. The embarkation process was somewhat lengthy, ... Read more

My brother actually picked this cruise because he had never cruised before and wanted to experience cruising to see for himself why I like it so much. My wife and I have been cruising since 2009 and fell in love with cruising. We take ... Read more

We chose this cruise to celebrate my birthday. We live an hour from Galveston, so it was an easy drive down on the morning of the cruise. We parked at EZ Cruise, as usual, and arrived at the pier at 11:00 am. Our check in window was ... Read more

We were with a church group of 19 people. We left home about 7:00 the morning of sailing, for a 3.5 hr. drive to Galveston. Arrived at our parking lot at 10:30 and waited a little while for our shuttle to take us to the terminal. Our ... Read more

Fantastic ship, Crew, and itinerary. We have been to Cozumel before, but wanted to go to Progreso to see more Mayan ruins and this itinerary was the only one that would accomplish that. We also needed to go out of Galveston as our son, ... Read more

Worst experience ever! This is the first cruise I've taken with my boyfriend, and the last cruise we'll ever take with Carnival. My boyfriend has several health issues, including cancer, seizures, diabetes, right side weakness, the list ... Read more

This was our first cruise, celebrating our 25th anniversary. I did a lot of research and found good things and bad things. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our cruise. We chose a cabin with a balcony and it was great. Mali ... Read more

I went on this cruise because one of my cousin's daughters was getting married. We had about 15 in our group, and it was, overall a fun first cruise for me. The ship was large enough to "avoid" (I hate to use that word) family ... Read more

This is my fourth cruise with Carnival and my family's second cruise. We recently cruised on the Conquest, which is a sister ship of the Liberty. The layout was the same with the decor being a bit different. I will say upfront that ... Read more

We have cruised most frequently on other cruise lines, and, frankly, perhaps unfairly looked down on Carnival. Therefore, our expectations were low, but we decided to give it a try because Galveston is much closer and less expensive than ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we could drive to the port as we live in Texas. We took our children and grandchildren. We booked three rooms. The price was reasonable, but not a bargain. First of all, getting there was terrible. ... Read more

We had a nice time on this cruise. The ship, although smaller than the Magic and some of the other larger ones used for 7 day cruises, was very nice and clean. The nighttime shows were good, but the male lead singer left a lot to be ... Read more

This cruise was a good vacation, overall, but there were a few misses along the way. We drove into the port the day prior to embarkation and stayed at the Hampton Inn. The hotel was right across from Wal Mart (Which was convenient for ... Read more

This was a sister cruise for the three of us. This was my 24th cruise and 5th with Carnival.The cabin was not set up for 3 people. For 3 days we had to request the third set of towels. When I opened the closet it was full of wet towels. ... Read more

We have previously sailed on Carnival Triumph once, and Magic three times. We love the Magic but it's not sailing out of Galveston which is the most convenient port for us. We ended up sailing on Liberty since our son and his family were ... Read more

We took this cruise, because we wanted to depart from Galveston, since we live in Houston. The embarkation was very smooth. We reserved a suite, and enter the ship around 11:30 am. The ship was clean and the cabin was very comfortable. Big ... Read more

I give 4 stars since this cruise meets all the expectations of a short, close to home Carnival Cruise. I have cruised 16 times, on 3 lines. I'm not a novice. Carnivals food is on par and compares well with Royal Caribbean and ... Read more

When you are planning and booking the cruise - you need to realize -- EVERYTHING is extra. The prices were not what we expected at all. My 17 year old said this cruise is " for those who drink or gamble" Spent most the ... Read more
