Liberty Review The Good, The Bad and the Fun
Destination: Western Caribbean
We finally boarded the ship about 1:30PM. The ship decor was lovely. We really enjoyed the layout of the ship. We were on deck 8 and it was conveniently located midship near elevator/stairs. The cabin was fine,we usually get a balcony but since my hubby was not going with us I thought an inside cabin would be fine for the 2 of us. The only issue with the cabin was we must have been near a generator or some type of machinery because the cabin was not quiet, it always had a humming sound or noise but we were usually so tired by the end of the night it was not a problem. We feel that the service was wonderful and the staff goes above and beyond. I cannot say enough great things about them, they work so hard to make our vacations special.
We really enjoyed the Punchliner Comedy Club and spent many evenings there. The BlueIguana Cantina and the RedFrog Rum bars on the lido deck had delicious drinks. We saw a couple of the shows, however we were not too impressed. All the shows seem to be the same after awhile.
The big disappointment on this cruise was the food. We normally enjoy the buffet for breakfast and lunch and do the main dining room for dinner, but we were not pleased with the food at all at the buffet or main dining room. The quality as well as the selection was poor in our opinion. We ended up eating at Guy's Burger Joint numerous times as that was the best food on the ship. We did make reservations for the Diamond Steakhouse for dinner one evening and that was wonderful. I had the surf and turf and was well worth the $30 fee to have a delicious meal.
Unfortunately, the weather was not great but we made the best of it anyway. Due to high winds we were not able to dock at our last port of Grand Cayman which we were very disappointed, but Carnival was able to add Key West in place of Grand Cayman so that was better than having another sea day. Our cruise director was Karl with a K and he was a blast as well as Rolly. The Hot and Cold night club was not very fun. They played a lot of Rap music and most people didn't dance. So we ended up leaving and finding other things to do. All in all, we had a great time, in spite of the food. However, I think this will be our last Carnival cruise for awhile. I think the next time we will try another line. Less
