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

My extended family decided on this cruise; my aunt & uncle being frequent cruisers. This was mine and my children's first cruise. I must say -- I was thoroughly underwhelmed. The quarters were small but I expected that. The food was ... Read more

This is my 10th or so cruise. Although other cruise lines offer a fancier trip, Carnival makes sure there is plenty of fun to go around! Let me start by saying that my husband and I have been together 40 years and enjoy vacationing ... Read more

First cruise for my husband and myself. Also our first vacation/trip without any of our children. A gift to ourselves in celebration of 25 years of marriage (even though it's now been 26 years). We traveled with family (sister and brother ... Read more

We live in Spring TX and Montgomery TX which is only 2 hours from Galveston so that's a plus not having to fly somewhere. Embarkation was terrible; . We had a 12-12:30 embarkation time but stood in line for an hour and a half...mostly ... Read more

Our favorite vacation is a Carnival cruise so we decided that's how we'd spend our 25th wedding anniversary. We can drive to Galveston in a couple days so we wanted to go out of that port. We chose this particular cruise because the diving ... Read more

So to start our vacation off, Carnival informed us on Thursday afternoon that they not be going to Progreso at all. Instead, we got to spend a day along the beautiful shores of Galveston. Don't get me wrong, I live in Texas and love it, ... Read more

To say my husband and I were highly disappointed is an understatement. The lines were long getting on the ship even though we chose a check in window. The food at the buffet was absolutely horrible and it wasn't even warm maybe if it had ... Read more

We sailed on the Carnival Liberty out of Galveston departing on May 2nd. The ship was late to arrive into port due to mechanical issues. That should have been our first clue that this trip would be a disaster. Embarkation was a bit ... Read more

This was our wedding cruise so boarding was awesome as we had priority boarding over everyone else. We had an Ocean Suite and the cabin was plenty spacious with lots of storage. We didn't even use half of the cabinet or drawer space ... Read more
