  1. I have 25 cruises under my belt starting way back in the last century [1974] I have taken 7 cruises on Carnival, 7 on NCL, 4 on RCCL, 1 on HAL and several other lines - some that don't exist any longer. Never have we had a bad cruise. Yes there is a difference to each line. I found HAL a bit stuffy and I find the mixture of classes of people on Carnival intriguing. That being said I recommend a cruise to a wonderful location your parents will love and the " ship " that fits your families needs. Then relax and don't worry about which line just which ship.
  2. Worst ship I ever sailed on is the Sunshine ! It was crowed with lack of open areas for guests to hang out. The comedy club was 'So Small' you had to line-up 30-45 minutes ahead of time to get into the next show. Then the room had TV's on the sides so the passengers stuck sitting there could watch on tv what was happening on stage. I could deal with all that -but - my real problem was the vibrations of the ship every day of the 8 day cruise. I could feel the ship shake all over the ship and especially the rear [aft] which is where all the dining options were. Needless to say it ruined my experience and this was cruise # 25 for me. If it had happened on my first cruise I never would have had all the great trips I've had.
  3. Ship - Liberty Deck - Riviera deck 1 Stateroom # - 1390 Stateroom Category – Ocean View 6B Starboard or Port Side - Port Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Very Quiet Must admit that occasionally we could hear some door open below us to the ocean. Not a problem just funny. Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No Balcony View - – N/A Any specific problems with this cabin? - None Cabin was very nice. Usual size for the conquest ships. Great picture window with nice ledge for leaning on to watch the ocean action. Also great for saving towels animals on. The only quirk we had with this room was that the mattresses kept slipping off the frame. We had to re-position often. Never had that happen before. As others have stated the mini 'chiller' / frig is not really cold but did keep drinks cooler and held cheese from dinner till mid-night snack time. Would book this cabin and ship again [ Conquest ships are the perfect size for us.]
  4. Fantastic review, I really enjoyed reading it and the pictures also. We will be on the Liberty in May for a 4 day going to Freeport / Nassau. Can't wait . Sounds like we will enjoy this ship. Thanks for sharing
  5. We sailed May 2018 on the Sunshine and will never again do that ship. The smell of smoke is as bad as everyone says. Smells go out into the Atrium area also. My main problem with the ship is I felt every vibration from the engines. On an 8 day cruise I was ill 6 days. Never have I felt this way in 20+ cruises. The food was wonderful both at the Lido deck and MDR. I could only eat in the MDR section closest to the middle of the boat. If I went any further back I started to feel sick. The Comedy club is Sooo Small for a ship this size. Therefore you had to get in line early to get a seat where you could see the stage & not have to watch it on TV. The staff were excellent in all the departments. The cabins are also very nice. Enjoyed the ports to.
