Overall we had a good time, but I think Carnival has many improvements to be made. Getting on and off the ship was very easy. I recommend doing the online check-in. You don't have to be there right at your scheduled time. We purchased the drink passes and found it to be well worth the money if you plan on having quite a few mixers. Beer drinkers may be better off paying per beer as they are only about 5 bucks. The bars were fairly quick, it was very annoying to have to sign a receipt every time you ordered a drink even if you had the drink package (you don't have to do that on Royal Caribbean). The buffet was always very crowded, long lines for food and trouble finding an open table. Guys burgers was awesome, as long as there is no line, the pizza bar was terrible, very thin burnt crust pizza. We had breakfast in the Silver dining room, food was great but the service was very slow. Late dinner at 8:15 in the Silver dining room was great. Service was fantastic and the waiters put on a great show for you. Food portions were very small but you can order multiple appetizers and entrees. We did not order room service because we had an interior cabin and did not spend much time in there. The main pool was a disaster. The pool is tiny and was covered up with kids. The music coming from the speakers was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think. The volume was excessive all the time. Movies music it didn't matter. The adult only pool, however, was great. Crowded at times and had its fair share of drunks by the end of the day, but overall was great, music was very low and seating was normally available. The bar there was great. I cant speak for the night life as we go to bed fairly early because we enjoy getting up early and watching the ship pull into port. We did not attend any of the shows or the comedy clubs but did hear good things about them from our family that attended. My favorite part of the ship had to be the casino. It was very open and not too smokey, the machines are spread out and the bar was great. It was the perfect spot to hang out before and after dinner in the Silver dinning room. We did get frustrated a few times especially on the first few days trying to navigate our way around the ship. Some places you have to go up or down a floor to get to them. Not many signs or helpful maps. The muster drill was not fun at all. They herd you out on the decks like cattle and make you stand way too close to other people. It was very hot and took forever as they only released certain stations at a time. The ship had very little movement that i noticed except for one night we had to go back to Nassau due to a medical emergency and the ship was moving a ton until we got back. Many parts of the ship you could feel a vibration especially towards the back from the engines. We were on the 6th floor aft, the room was nice and we didn't feel any movement, but certain nights they were having events in the atrium and at 10:30 at night it was very loud in our room. The room was great, could have used a few more outlets and the door did not seal well as we could hear everything in the hallway. They do not give you an iron in the room, and i was told there was only one iron per floor that you have to share with everyone else, which is ridiculous. We had to wear our wrinkly shirts we crammed into our one check in bag we were allowed. We did not do any excursions, Nassau was okay, the walk to the public beach is very long and not worth it. Free port we got off and just did some shopping close to the ship and got back on. Overall this ship is in need of some upgrades, you could see many rust spots on the outside of the ship and was normally the oldest looking of all the ships at port with us. For the price this cruise is not bad for maybe a younger couple looking to have a good time. For people wanting to relax I would take you money to another cruise line or a different ship. In my experience it has been well worth the money to book a cruise that will not be overcrowded. Read Less

We selected this cruise last minute as a birthday celebration and booked it only a few weeks before departure. We booked a Grand Suite and we really enjoyed all the extra space in the cabin. However, there are really no perks to getting a suite on this ship other than a few free bottles of water and priority check in. Embarkation is a breeze with priority check in. We went through security and right onto the ship. Our keys were waiting for us in the cabin. When did turn down service start on the 2nd night of the cruise? One of the biggest problems on this ship is muster drill. They are still lining you up outside in the rain by the lifeboats for 40 minutes. Being unable to manage stairs, we went down early to avoid the mandatory stair trip. So that added even more time to the lengthy stand against the wall with people 6 deep. People that would not shut up long enough to listen to the drill and leaders that did absolutely nothing to control these people. This experience had anxiety attack written all over it. Next we have the unending PA announcements at all hours of the day and night. This is absolutely ridiculous when you are trying to sleep and you have to hear about some activity that you "must" attend every 20 minutes. Or, the employee drills, is there a reason I need to hear this alarm in my room when I'm trying to sleep? Then we have the paper thin walls so that you can hear the toilet flush in the next cabin, or the loads of rude passengers running up and down the hallways and sometimes knocking on your door. Or blocking the hallways with their "get togethers" and impromptu conversations. There is a level of passenger on this ship that is not the norm of cruise passengers and I believe that is due to the price of the cruise and the locale. So, if you are used to a more reserved crowd that knows social etiquette, this is NOT the ship for you. I got to the point where I just didn't want to leave the cabin. On the food, well let's just say this, the grilled cheese on the room service menu is amazing! So, that's not saying much. The lines in the buffet were unending and poorly organized. They need more stations with the same food so that the lines are manageable. I should not have to wait 45 minutes for my runny fake scrambled eggs! They dole out the bacon 2 strips at a time and you have to wait in that line to get it. Or you can be like many passengers that just cut the line. In fact, I was getting my ice water and just about to put my glass on the ice dispenser when a woman jammed her cup in front of mine and took ice. The crowd on the ship reminded me of a frat house party and that is not limited to a certain group. 80% of the ship was at the party! And there was no limit to the amount of poorly dressed people showing all parts of their bodies with pride! The Diamond Steakhouse was nice, but the steaks are poorly seasoned and the lobster, while tasty is small. The Art at the Table dessert was very entertaining and beautiful. Service was also very good here. The Golden Olympian dining room had subpar cold food and the seating was awful. Asking for a table for 2 was futile as the next table for 2 was 6 inches away and so on. The internet on this ship is spotty and you have to reconnect often. Many websites are completely blocked, so be careful which plan you select. I did enjoy having the Carnival Hub on my phone so I always had deck plans and activity lists available to me. If you are used to sailing with more reserved passengers where you get a certain level of service (Celebrity), then this is not the ship for you! I had a run in with a store clerk where the sign on the display read 30% off, however the piece that I selected on that same display was only 10% off. I got nowhere with that person explaining you can't advertise 30% off and then pick and choose which items will be covered unless you list that it's 30% of on select items. The 2 comedians in the Punchliner Club were awesome and we'll be looking them up on YouTube, HBO etc. We saw them all three nights on the ship and each night was different material both family and adult shows. The Rock shows was embarrassingly bad with off key singing, old music and dancing that needs to be updated with more modern moves. As always, waiting for elevators is a challenge and when the door opens you have about 5 seconds to get in or out, because the doors close immediately. Not an exaggeration. Timing issues need to be resolved here so that there are no injuries. Once again, the empty elevator not stopping for you remains a mystery! Disembarkation was a breeze when you have all carry on luggage. We walked off the ship at 7am and went through customs and on to the car in about 15-20 minutes. There is a lot of walking so that would be most of the time. For a 3 night cruise, it's amazing how few people have carry on luggage, so crowds were not an issue. Read Less

Unfortunately not a lot great to say about Liberty. Getting on board was super easy but having never sailed with carnival nowhere in any of the countdown emails did it give us any info about our sail and sign cards being at our stateroom once on board our state room was not ready so we swam for awhile until it was. We had selected early dining while our dining staff was awesome and the food generally good the portions were very small. After fist night we decided to try the buffet (big mistake) the lines are super long and the fare is just ho hum. For lunch Guys burgers are awesome but everything has huge lines. Our state room was nice we were on deck 10 forward. Our steward was good. We went on one shore excursion in Nassau to Balmora Island. While not Carnivals fault the staff for balmora and the ferry to get us there was incredibly rude. On the ship the biggest complaint other than lines is not enough pools and the super foul almost raw sewage smell on the lido deck especially noticeable around the rum bar. When attempting to take in a movie on deck at night (in between carnival commercials that were never ending) the smell was almost overwhelming. Overall the liberty is an old ship in need of a port stay for upgrades, painting, etc. A good value for maybe a weekend getaway cruise but I would not recommend it for a vacation. Read Less
