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

I am really unsure why there are so many bad reviews of this cruise. Before going on the cruise, I was very worried that it was going to be like all these reviews state, but it wasn't! PROS: -Dinner every night was absolutely ... 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

where should I start? The beginning sounds like a good place to start. My family and I selected the Carnival Valor ship and was to check in at 4:00pm. A week before the sail date, we were advised our ship has been changed to the Carnival ... Read more
