Carnival Liberty Cruise Review by ashleyunf
- Sail Date: December 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
Enough about food....
EXCURSIONS:We did all excursion through the ship...we are afraid of getting left and in Belize we were very thankful or we would have bee finding our own way to Honduras.
Cozumel : Secret Amazing River. Fantastic Tour. The Caves were breathtaking, and the tour guide we had (Pablo) was so knowledgeable. The only draw back here is the price of their pictures, a single picture is $25. Visa and MasterCard and Exact change cash are only accepted. However the lunch was great and so was the liquor they make there! 4.5 out of 5 stars
Belize: Mayan ruins tour of Xunantunich(probably spelled that wrong) It is a 2 hour drive to the ruins and a 2 hour drive back...but the ruins are amazing. We climbed to the top on the ruins white knuckled all the way up and down (They are very steep) but there is a lot of history and if you have a good tour guide they share their knowledge with you. This is a tender port and the last tender was supposed to leave back to the ship at 5:15 and we did not get back there until about 5:30...so needless to say be careful at this port if you book an excursion not with Carnival...4 out of 5 star (the drive was really long)
Roatan: We did the Canopy tour and snorkeling. You drive a short trip to the zip line start. The harness you and you are off. There is about 8 - 10 lines . It takes about 45 mins to and hour to get through them all. The views are breath taking and absolutely gorgeous. Then you are taken to the beach for some relaxation time. Try a makilala(not sure but it a frozen drink they make at the beach) it is delicious. We got a little rain while at the beach but we still enjoyed it. 5 out of 5 stars
Grand Cayman: we did a Mountain Bike, Kayak, and Snorkel tour. This is the best way to see the island. We rode around about 10 miles and stopped at Hell, Dolphin Discovery, and the Tortuga Rum Shop. You are given time to shop, explore and buy anything you wish. They have a jeep following you so you don't have to hold what you buy. Then you got to the beach get in a kayak and head down the shore line about 30 mins to you snorkel site. Our guide was great he was throwing food for the fish around us so we could get great pictures with our underwater cameras. I think we were in the water about an hour we got back in our kayaks and headed back to the beach, where a bus took us back to the ship. 5 our of 5 stars again.
The shows on board were ok. The sound system was so loud it was hard to enjoy the shows in the show room. The Comedians were fantastic but in this room if you were not close to the front you couldn't hear. I think they need to work out their sound system issues. The piano bar was just OK. I had heard great things about the piano player, he was good, but I have also seen some better ones.
Over all it was a great cruise and I would def take it again and recommend it to anyone.
