1 EXCURSION CAN RUIN A TRIP

Review for Carnival Liberty to Africa

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We were traveling as a once in a lifetime family vacation. We have boys with wide age differences (29 to 14yrs) so getting everyone in one place that provides every level of entertainment was a challenge. We purchased FTTF which is worth the money (especially for a trip like this where standing in lines would make everyone cranky)so embarking and disembarkation were smooth. My 14yr old did not ...

We choose this cruise because it was a slightly bigger ship than what we've cruised on before with Carnival. I must say that we were disappointed that the shops onboard didn't offer a lot to shop for. It seemed to us that the smaller ships had more to choose from than this one. It did have more dining options and foods to choose from. It also had more pools than the smaller ones. I would say that ...

First embarkment and disembarkation was great! Port Canaveral is a great spot. The cruise was on Carnival. If you expect lectures and a large library on board, boy did someone sell you the goods. The ship is fine. Its clean and functional. Our cabin was clean and kept clean. But no turn down service was there - just the towel animals. The food ranged from fantastic to meh. Highlight was ...

This was the worse cruise was the worse ever. It was my first one...... Everything went wrong that could go wrong. It was my birthday and Christmas present from my parents. This was my first cruise for all of us and it was TERRIBLE!!!!! I do now that you can not help mother nature, but we got there at 8 am like they told us because we were signed up for Faster the Fun, and that didn't mean a ...

After Carnival announced changes to itineraries on the Liberty out of Galveston we started watching prices. The cruise we took went from sold out to wide open in a matter of days and we were able to pick up an 8E cabin on Lido deck for a great price. The cruise we chose had an overnight in Cozumel, which was the deciding factor in taking this cruise. I am Diamond and my husband is Platinum, ...

We chose this cruise for Thanksgiving week over a year ago. We are celebrating our 50th anniversary & wanted to take our kids, their spouses,& our grandson. We knew the price would be higher since it was a holiday but that was a non-fiction at the time. Our frustrations began when Carnival changed the itinerary due to propulsion problems with the Liberty. Instead of going to Jamaica, Grand ...

1st Cruise in 28 Years!

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because it was out of Galveston and 5 nights. We were not particular about what ports of call as we had not been on a cruise in 28 years and were more interested in the ship experience. Overall we had a great time and are already thinking about doing another cruise next year. We were fortunate with the weather as it was calm for the first 3 days and no tummy trouble. The ...

Carnival was very generous and informative in regards to the Liberty and her problems with mechanical issues. We enjoyed the overnight stay in Cozumel very much, it is one of our favorite ports. The staff was attentive, and bar service on deck was excellent. Loved Guy's Burger Joint. Had a great time at the comedy club. Our room was ready and waiting when we boarded. We really have NO ...

First...I selected Western Caribbean as where I sailed because that was the original intent.... I booked this cruise in May 2016 for my son (14) and I over the week of Thanksgiving. I paid for a cabin upgrade, airport transportation, alcohol package for me, bottomless soda for kiddo and booked our excursions for Grand Cayman, Jamaica and Cozumel. I purchased our flight by using Skymiles and ...

Every year a group of girlfriends book a cruise sailing from Galveston. We always have fun no matter whether it is a cruise or a birthday lunch. As a group total, we are nearing 100 cruises so we have cruising experience. Hats off to the Port of Galveston and the embark and disembark crew! Fantastic! Every step is guided and easy! The decor of the Liberty is pretty and very conservative ...
