Ship Facts: Carnival Liberty Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Liberty Deck Plans
Capital Jazz Supercruise IV 2010
This is the 1st capital jazz cruise hubby and I had attended. been on 5 smooth jazz cruises. made a mistake and flew in to Fort Lauderdale, but caught the Tri-rail for $3.75 to Miami. kind of long journey with 6 (LOL) suitcases but worth it. stayed at La Quinta Inn airport. Staff is amazing there. so very helpful. walked over to Pollo Tropicale. chicken is delicioso. have to walk through quite a bit of traffic to get there, but it's doable. free shuttle to port of Miami.

embarkation was fine. rooms were much much smaller than on Holland, but who is in the room for any period of time anyway? food was mediocre.

Now to get to the bones of this review. capital jazz cruise was
(1)too crowded
(2)a lot of times venues were full to capacity and you had to stand for some concerts
(3) at one point we were made to clear a venue and leave our seats and get back in a line that was 40 or 50 feet long because people elected to stay at the end of one of the shows. We had come in when the other show ended.
(4) shows could have been scheduled better. one show at front of ship and then the next big show at the back of the ship made for a lot of running around. Why couldn't both shows be scheduled in the big theater?

disembarkation was a nightmare. a line that snaked and coiled inside the luggage terminal. took us almost an hour just to get out and the immigration people were really snotty. All in all it wasn't bad but the standing up and being made to leave the theater left a bad taste in our mouth. too much money for this type of cruise to have to stand.

On a good note most of the personnel were very nice especially Audrey who is an asset to Capital Jazz. There is a lot to do almost too much to do. belly dancing classes, pole dancing classes, Chicago steppin classes, starting at 8 o'clock in the morning. if I hadn't gone on smooth jazz cruise I would probably have loved this; but, alas, I am spoiled; so I will stay with The Smooth Jazz Cruise
