We chose this cruise because it was out of Galveston and 5 nights. We were not particular about what ports of call as we had not been on a cruise in 28 years and were more interested in the ship experience. Overall we had a great time and ... Read more

After Carnival announced changes to itineraries on the Liberty out of Galveston we started watching prices. The cruise we took went from sold out to wide open in a matter of days and we were able to pick up an 8E cabin on Lido deck for a ... Read more

Was aboard the Carnival Liberty for a few day budget cruise. The ship is a bit dated with its older decor and its dated room furnishings but overall its to be expected with a decade+ older ship. CONS -Guys burgers were a bit on the ... Read more

I have cruised carnival twice before. I have also booked excursions before also. This was one of the worst cruises I have been on. First I asked for a room with a window because my husband hadn't ever cruised and I tried to think of ... Read more

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

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

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
