Carnival Liberty - Western Caribbean: Carnival Liberty Cruise Review by Francis J Daly
Overall Member Rating
Carnival Liberty - Western Caribbean
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The entertainment is not to be missed from the regular shows (a different show twice every other night) to the cruise More director's shows and the 2 late night mature audience comics. Lots and lots of laughs and it's all included in your fare. Trivia games, dance classes and bingo (buy cards) were available every day and do not forget the casino.
The shore excursions were pricier the expected , but the ones we selected at our 3 stops, Costa Maya (Mayan ruins), Puerto Limon, Costa Rica (bus, boat and train tour) and Colon, Panama (ferry ride thru 2 canal locks (except for leaving the ferry to the buses for the trip back to the ship)) were enjoyable and what we had hoped for. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable and frank about their countries and answered all questions. The ship's pools were smaller then expected, the sun decks crowded and it was not easy to get lounge chairs unless you are up early.
Getting on the ship did take quite a long time about 1 hour 40 minutes, lines were long and you were not sure they were going to end.
Getting off was easier if you took your own luggage you could leave from 6:30am to 7:30am, it only took us 10 minutes. Else you had to wait to be called to depart.
We cannot wait to book another cruise, by far the best value for the for your vacation dollar. Less
Great Cruise and Staff --- NEV...
First, and probably last royal...
