Lacks Good Entertainment and Rude Guests

Sail Date: August 2014
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral

I will probably not go on the Liberty again. Too may rude guests and not enough to do. Too many things/services to sell listed for things to do and not enough entertainment to suit me. I am not one to just stand in a pool and drink all day. All ships personnel were outstanding. All appeared to want to be there and help where ever possible. All were nice and pleasant.

The Cruise Director Corry was good and seen all over the ship. He reminds me of Drew Cary when Drew was a tad bigger lets say. Never saw the piano bar open with a player...he/she might be on vacation. The sit down restaurant was open all mornings, including last morning to feed all that could get in for 7-9am. I did the buffet 1 morning, but went back to the sit down restaurant the rest of the week. The MDR food was good all week and there was no reason for us to try the steakhouse. We were in and out in 1.5 hours. We were off the ship and in our car within an hour after leaving breakfast. They left from one pier More and came back to another one, so they had to bus us all to the first pier. That was well organized and efficient. No issues there. I was less then 50 yards from where they parked, so it was smooth and easy for us...:) I saw a few families lugging their luggage up the ramp to the 2nd or 3rd level I guess....That sucks....We had a forward cabin on deck 6 and heard heavy banging from the seas on 3 nights that made us sleep less. Maybe if they had slowed down, they would not be banging so hard. Sounded like a cannon being shot off when the water hit the hull all the time. There was no timing it. It was sporadic all night

Overall, we had a very relaxing trip except for those 3 nights of heavy and loud banging from the sea. O yea, and at 7:45am, there was a maintenance crew above us moving pipes and grinding over the balcony. Steel on steel banging along with the grinding so early in the morning put a damper on our relaxing waking time....

Lets just say, we have had better cruises with Carnival. With our next 3 on other lines, maybe we will find a home...maybe not. :cool: Less

Cabin review: Carnival Liberty Interior Upper 6307

Cabin 6307 is a disable cabin. Plenty of room in the bathroom. Cabin was not as large as we were expecting. Items functioned properly though out the cabin. The entry to the cabin is not what is shown on the deck plan. The door is actually facing forward as you turn to go out to the forward hideaway deck. It is a tight turn for a scooter rider, but doable. Only downside we had was there was not a couch in the cabin. That means a lot to us and was very disappointed that the cabin did not match the write up on what was in it. Bed was hard so we asked for an egg create. There were none available or Steward did not have any period, so he put down another comforter under the bottom sheet. Was still not to my liking, but better then nothing. Cabin is a long walk to the aft dining room we were assigned too.
