Ship Facts: Carnival Liberty Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Liberty Deck Plans
Torn between the good and bad
Good:

The Alchemy Bar. Inna, Vicky, and Gabor were friendly, fun to chat with, and made delicious drinks. We usually stopped in at least once a day to just hang out with these guys! Try the Basil Drop and Cucumber Sunrise. We had the pleasure of attending Inna's private drink-mixing class, which was so much fun! She is hilarious and we all agreed it to be one of our favorite things of the week.

We had a balcony cabin on the 8th floor, which was always very clean and comfortable. Our cabin steward was very accommodating and made the BEST towel animals EVER!

The updated decor in the main areas was pretty!

The Burger joint was awesome.

Pizza Pirate had long lines, but was thin-crust and tasty.

The serenity deck near the spa was a nice retreat away from kids and the hustle and bustle of the Lido deck.

The overall "fun" theme of the ship was apparent from Day 1. There was a good party-vibe, more so than any other ship I've been on before.

The Not-so-good:

Not Necessarily Carnival's fault, but the clientele. I'd describe it as maybe one step up from a Walmart customer.

The dining room food was so-so. Not BAD by any means, but no fine dining here. The wine list was also disappointing.

The drink waiters were pushy! I felt like they were salesman trying to push us drinks all day long at the pool and shots at dinner. A little much.

Same with the photographers. They were EVERYWHERE and out of control!

We really liked the DJ, but the music on the Lido deck by the pool was obnoxiously loud. Plus, it would be nice to see some kind of reggae band during the day instead of clubbing music all day and night long.

Comedians were just okay. And the shows were extremely short.

Missed a port due to an engine propulsion problem the 2nd day. Carnival reimbursed us $50pp which we were happy with. We ended up getting to spend an extra night in San Juan, which made missing St Thomas a little easier to deal with.
