7 Day Southern Caribbean on Carnival Liberty

This was our 11th cruise and first on Carnival. We sailed out of Barbados. We had some appartment in the middle of nowhere, even the taxi could not find it. Because there where only a few hundred people embarking, ...

Bad Customer Service

We went on the Carnival Liberty from Barbados back in December 2015.The boarding experience was very quick and easy, mainly due to the fact only 150 people boarded in Bridgetown, the rest of the people had boarded ...

Best Cruise Ever

This was my first cruise and I had a blast. We embarked from Barbados, the process was smooth and easy. The atmosphere from the port was upbeat. We got name tags and were sent on our way to the cruise ship. ...

Carnival Liberty; Never Ever Again!

Thankfully we had cruised before, because this would put you off cruising for ever. The ship is "decorated" with so many different materials, textures, colours (we counted approx.11 in the lifts) that it assaults ...

Pros & Cons

The cabins were clean and well furnished; the food varied and of good quality. Cleanliness on board was excellent, with staff friendly and helpful. On the downside, mobile telephone reception on board was very poor ...

A 'Fun' Cruise?

How can Carnival Valor score 1* and 5* for the same cruise in the same month? It all depends on what cruisers were expecting. If they wanted a quiet, cultural cruise of the E Caribbean, they's give it 1* but, if ...

A Lot to Be Desired

The best part of the cruise, other than the ports, was embarkation. While most passengers had embarked in San Juan, which likely resulted in a swarm of people, we decided to board in Barbados. This was a great ...

This was our first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. What a wonderful experience. We were totally spoilt and looked after the whole time. We chose a balcony cabin which was great as we could watch as we came ...

Great 1st Time Cruise

We picked the Carnival Victory based on the great itinerary it provides, calling at 6 different ports on a 7 day cruise of the Caribbean. We boarded the ship in Barbados which was great as only around 100 passengers ...

Carnival Victory - April 2012

This was our first cruise and much anticipated. We boarded in Barbados where only about 50 passengers seem to board compared with the 2000 or so in San Juan. Check in was slow despite so few passengers and it took ...
