Better than expected but, not all great

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
what we paid for the cruise. We are small ship cruiser preferring not to wait in lines for everything, but the Liberty did not feel like a big ship and the layout was quickly learned although not totally practical.

I must have forgotten about it being Thanksgiving week when I booked, and this cruise was crawling with kids. Kids out of control, misbehaving, be rude and stupid. In other words kids being kids with no parental control or concern. Unfortunately some families have turned a cruise ship into a floating babysitter and Carnival promotes this by having late night hour activies for kids starting at 10 PM going to 3AM. REALLY! Then they return to their cabins running down the halls and yelling. It's not really the kids fault the lack of parenting by the adults who gave birth to them. Just obnoxious.

This has got to be the ugliest ship interior I have ever seen - It is in need of a serious make-under. Ugh...Gaudy and overdone.

The food was better than we More had expected, with cudos to Guy's Burger Joint - this is a must do.

The main pool area was joke. Don't get the terraced seating and what's the big movie screen for except a commercial for their bars and such.
Why does Sara in the comedy club have to yell in the Comedy club too? The comedians on this cruise were very good, one raunchy beyond raunch in one of the adults only show, but all of them better than expected. Variety shows not so great.

The DJ plays music too loud - not sure why they think everyone is deaf but the volume got old quickly so thank heaven for the adults only pool in the back.

We got was we paid for, visited a port we wanted to on a specific week so we were satisified overall but won't be booking Carnival again anytime soon unless maybe we choose a non-holiday week. Less
