Ship Facts: Carnival Liberty Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Liberty Deck Plans
Liberty not liberty at all
First our cabin which was quite nice for an older ship was located just outside the balcony that looked down on to the Atrium. Terrible place for a cabin. For some reason Carnival thought it a good idea to hold some late evening gatherings in this atrium area. We are not late night people. The sound of screaming, yelling, singing penetrated into our cabin awakening us on several evenings.

The pool areas, well forget it. The pools were filled shoulder to shoulder with people standing vertically. These pools are not made for swimming, but merely rubbing shoulders with other cruise passengers. Didn't matter which pool because all 3 of them were filled with people. Sit around the pools? Forget it. You were risking life or limb as the decks were so crowded with either screaming teenagers, drunk young people or children running around.

The food was merely okay. Nothing much to write home about. We knew by the third day we had made a big mistake. In saving ourselves a few hundred dollars from other cruise lines we ended up having a miserable vacation.

Forget it if you are over 25 years old. This is not the cruise line for you despite what you may have heard about Carnival trying to improve its image. The image we have taken home with us is an image we want to forget.

The beverages whether water, soda, or alcohol were very high price; i.e., about $4.00 for a bottle of water.

The pros about Carnival were that the boarding was quick and easy if you are VIP status as were we; the cabin stewards were wonderful; the dining room waiter (especially Roberto, Gusti and Mona Lisa) were the best; and debarkation was a piece of cake if you got off first as did we.
