We're Platinum on Carnival and retired from our jobs so the longer trips are more appealing to us. We had never done a Journey cruise so that also was a positive thing, never been on the Liberty, another positive, and finally there were ... Read more

We like cruising out of San Juan. It's real easy to get on the ship and the Old Town section is right across the street from the pier if you want to check out San Juan after dropping off the luggage. If you have priority boarding ... Read more

Carnival is at the bottom of the barrel of cruise companies now. This is our fifth cruise (2 on Carnival, 2 on Royal Caribbean). Food: omelettes were mushy, fish was very soggy; chicken was dry. Main Dining Room: Food was good, but ... Read more

1) Boat: overall the Liberty shows signs of wear. The big screen up on the deck should be replaced as it is extremely pixelated. The Liberty feels a bit dated. 2) Room. I was in room 1059.The rug is worn and is a tripping hazard. it ... Read more

This was our 11th cruise and first on Carnival. We sailed out of Barbados. We had some appartment in the middle of nowhere, even the taxi could not find it. Because there where only a few hundred people embarking, this was really fun. No ... Read more
