Not my favorite but ok for price
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
First we have cruised for the past 4 years with a children that are 7 & 11 now. We cruised Disney Wonder, Disney Dream & NCL Epic. Carnival Liberty has almost nothing that those ships have but as the phrase goes you get what you pay for. Liberty has almost no good entertainment. They have a comedy club, ok lounge music as a couple of good acoustic solo performers. No night shows to speak of and on the last night had good outside movies at the Lido deck. Wish they would of done this every night as between 7:30 & 9:00 nothing went on at the main pool deck and the families seemed to like the movie (Despicable Me 2).
Food was not terrible but was not to die for. Staff was very nice but just not the best food. Went to Diamonds one night and the food was very good but too much food and not worth the additional price in our opinion. NCL Epic was just as good and less for their specialty restaurants and Disney was the best of them all for no additional cost More except the cruise price is way more. Lunch was good as we did like Guy's, The Mongolian Wok and my daughter liked the fish & chips.
Lots of room on the pool deck as we always found a chair as that was great. Not great beer choices but had more options at lower deck bars inside which I did not get. Drank more on the pool deck so why not have more options up there is anyone's guess. They also repeated the same 3-4 lines dances which became kind of lame.
Didn't get off as Nassau, St Thomas is always nice as we like Magen's Bay and the Champagne Snorkel at St Johns, liked to walk Old San Juan and Grand Turk has a very nice beach right at the Port. Has shops and the beach chairs are there for you to use which was nice.
Would have to think had about going on Carnival again as the kids were board most of the time and there was nothing that stood out that would keep us loyal to Carnival. Less

Cabin review: 8-275
The room was good size for the two of us. Biggest complaint was the bed as we could of slept on the floor for the same comfort. Shower was good and we had plenty of storage space.
Not what we expected.
Small/short and not enough act...
Disappointed First Time Cruise...
Take friends and have fun!
Budget cruise that was average...
Not up to Carnival's standards...
Mini Honeymoon gone wrong!
