Carnival Liberty's cabins occupy the usual basic Carnival range -- insides, oceanview, balcony, suite -- and are a touch larger than industry average. Non-suites are typically about 185 square feet; balcony sizes range from 30 to 75 square feet depending on cabin location.

In cabins from the inside category to standard balcony category (including cabins with picture windows), decor is a pleasant amalgam of peachy and soft yellow tones. Insides come with chairs; all others have seating areas with sofas (some are pull-outs) and coffee tables. One way in which Carnival distinguishes itself is by offering beds that convert from two twins to a king. (Other cruise lines use more narrow twins that, doubled, equal a queen.) Beds are outfitted with soft linens and duvets.

On the technology front, beyond in-cabin wireless Internet access, there's an interactive television system that offers everything from pay-per-view movies to reservation capabilities. Flat-screen televisions with remotes, safes (Carnival recommends you use a credit card to lock them instead of your room key, making it impossible to secure that particular credit card), filled mini-fridges (price cards are offered) and phones with voicemail fill out the rest of the amenities. Storage is excellent.

All bathrooms in these categories feature only showers (with the type of shower curtain that seems to know how to snake its way around you; make sure it's tucked inside, or you'll flood the floor). Mirrors above the sink are flanked with shelves for toiletries. A sampling of free items is offered. (It changes; ours included razors, dental floss and toothpaste.) Showers dispense gel and shampoo from anchored containers. Towels provided were not only generous in quantity but also quite nice in quality.

Balconies, for those standard cabins that have them, are pretty shallow, but the furnishings are nice: one mesh adjustable chair, one regular chair and a small table.

This ship, like it siblings, offers family-friendly accommodations. Most notable are those with floor-to-ceiling windows.

Suites are not quite twice the size of balcony cabins, but they're plenty roomy. Beyond the extra space, there are more bells and whistles, such as bathrooms with tubs.

Carnival Liberty also has two large Penthouse Suites. Each accommodates five people and features a living area with a sofa bed, a separate bedroom, a balcony and two full bathrooms -- including one with a tub. At 750 square feet, these are the largest cabins in the fleet.

Don't throw away your money. Ship is disgustingly nasty with body fluids dripped down the walls of the bathrooms that look to have been there for maybe a year or so. No wonder viruses and diseases are so prevalent on their ships. Housekeeping is non existent and does no...continue

We had an ocean suite and it was excellent. Plenty of room for our family of four.

Cabin was very roomy, we liked being on a lower level (less rocking). Our shower was slow in draining and flooded the bathroom floor. The problem was taken care of by plumbing the last day of our stay on board.
