  1. Hi we are going to be sailing on the 3 night Liberty cruise & had some questions about Camp Ocean. For embarkation day, I think there are no Camp Ocean activities other then signing up & checking the place out? Our 2nd day is overnight in Nassau. For that is Camp Ocean open all day & do they combine the ages? Will dinner & evening activities be available that day? Our last full day we leave Nassau & are out to sea. I assume there will be regular Camp Ocean activities divided by age groups? Any hours camp Ocean is open these days would be greatly appreciated.
  2. We are on the September 23rd 4 day cruise from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas and have a balcony booked. I broke my right foot last week and will be using a knee roller. The only handicapped accessible rooms are insides with windows at the front of the ship. I am loathe to give up my balcony. I know the aft balcony cabins aren't bigger than a regular cabin, but would it be worth an extra $200 to get the much bigger balcony for the extra room? Thanks!
  3. We have a cruise planned on Carnival Liberty and I was wondering if we sail at 3:30 what time does all the shops and casino open after sailing. Also we are overnight in Nassau and I was wondering what time everything will open up that night. Thanks in advance for your help
  4. Ahoy Everybody! My name is Jeff “Jamman” Maskall, and I’m a cruise addict! Welcome, to my review of the Carnival Liberty, an 8 day cruise from Port Canaveral to Aruba, Curacao, and Grand Turk. This cruise was the second half of an almost back to back with the Carnival Fascination, which we boarded the week before. If you have not already read my review of that cruise, a link to it can be found in my signature. Cruising with me, are my beautiful wife, Patti, our darling 17 year old son Ryan, and with us in spirit, our son Kevin, who made it well known to us on the Fascination that he was with us! As always, I want to bring you along for the ride, share some photos, and perhaps give you a few tips, in case you are considering a cruise aboard the Carnival Liberty, doing this itinerary, or just to stir up some past happy memories. Glad to have you aboard. I think this one may be a long one! We booked this cruise for our summer vacation for a variety of reasons. First, we had not sailed on the Liberty before. Second, we had not sailed on a Carnival ship that had the 2.0 upgrades before. Thirdly, It had been a very long time since we had cruised to the Southern Caribbean. I remember sailing from San Juan on a 7 day cruise with five ports, and only one sea day, and leaving the ship when it was over, more tired than when I got on! I vowed never to do a port intensive itinerary like that again. But this itinerary was perfect, since it had FOUR sea days, which we love, and just the three ports. We will begin where we left off, in Jacksonville. After leaving the Fascination, we made the two and a half hour drive down I-95 to Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach. We are getting close….. Our first view of the ships in today at Port Canaveral….. We are here…… Our home for the next two days….. We have arrived a couple of hours before the scheduled check in time, but our room was ready, so we checked in. The front desk at the Radisson….. To be continued…..
  5. Hi, we are doing a 3 day Liberty cruise and have some questions. Does anyone have the most recent fun times? Does the 3 day cruise have the Dr Seus brunch and other dr seus activities? What time does the seaday brunch end? Any special events or drinks we should be aware of? What is the latest we can leave the ship on disembarkation day and about how long to go through customs? Any tips or info on Liberty would be greatly appreciated.
  6. I've tried searching to no avail, but are there hairdryers on the Liberty?? Thanks!!
  7. Does the Liberty have nickel or penny slots? Thanks!
  8. Strange question - when looking at the deck plans for the Lido on the Liberty, room 9208 looks to be a tad bit larger than the others around it. Am I just imagining things, is the deck plan off on size or did with get a bit lucky? Wondering if anyone has been in that room before and can tell me. Thank you!
  9. Does anyone happen to have pictures of menus from the Liberty's 4 day? Itinerary is Nassau & Freeport. It's my daughter's first cruise and she wanted to know what would be thre dinner options. Thanks.
  10. Ok, so I had some available time and thought "why not book a short cruise?" I believe ANY cruise is better than NO cruise. I was on the Liberty this past October and had a wonderful time. However, one of my traveling peeps said the Liberty was her least favorite. I realize that everyone has differing opinions. I started reading all the reviews since I cruised the Liberty in October and they are ALL BAD. Seriously. I'm thinking to myself what the heck has happened?! Now, I don't want to cancel or change as I will have a good time regardless (I hope). But if you have sailed on the Liberty since I did in October, and have had a good time or want to post something positive, I would really appreciate it. I truly respect and appreciate all the honest comments and reviews. But once I am "locked" in, I want to read the good stuff. LOL! Help me please......
  11. Hi all! Yesterday evening I found a cruise on Carnival that leaves for 3 days. It departs from Orlando and goes to Nassau for a day. This morning I got up to book it and it was gone! I was so upset. So I have two questions: 1. Is there a forum on here, maybe, where people who have to cancel last minute, are selling their spots? 2. When I spoke to Carnival, the rep said that sometimes the cruises reappear if space opens up. Does anyone know what the chances are of that happening? Should I continue to call everyday and check? Im really hoping I can hop on because I have family going and don’t want to miss out :-(
  12. Hello fellow cruisers! I just returned from a 4-day Bahamas cruise onboard the Liberty, and thought I'd write a quick review! Just testing this pic and I'll be back!
  13. Going on Carnival Liberty Halloween Cruise Oct.2019. Can anyone who has been on Carnival Liberty recently please share any info as far as tips, shows Not to miss, best pool to hang out at. It is a 4 night cruise to Nassau and their private island. So if anyone has the 5 day fun times I would love it. Pictures of 5 day menus, Favorite employees or room Stewarts. or just any thing you can think of mentioning. This is my sister and her family first cruise and I want to make it awesome for them. It is 3 adults with them and me and my husband.All adults. Thank you
  14. I am looking at booking this cabin. I just realized it's over the Victoria Aft Lounge. Thoughts on noise??? We do attend comedy nights, karaoke, etc. So, it's not like we will be in bed early. I'm thinking it will be fine but, thought I would ask before finalizing my booking. TIA Christie
  15. Looking at a 4 day for my niece 26, mom 80, and myself 48. Mom and I have sailed a lot. Niece has never cruised. Mom is slower to get around now. Ports are not a big concern. Overall Ship condition is important. Looking at a balcony or possibly suite for extra room. I was on Liberty in January 2019. I have been on Valor, but its been awhile. Let me know your thoughts on: Liberty Victory Paradise (Does it have a Lido screen?) Valor Thanks!
  16. We booked the Mardi Gras for its first sailing out of Port Canaveral October, 16, 2020. We have a bunch of family going on this cruise with us. My son and daughter in law are going with my two young grandsons. They haven't had a vacation "away from the kids" (as I didn't also when my children were young, always looked them with me) but my son and I were speaking yesterday and a thought came up, we were thinking what about going on the Carnival Liberty for the 4 night cruise then getting off that ship and jumping right on the Mardi Gras. I figured the Liberty cruise be the cruise I be the "grandma nanny" so they can have a few days to themselves. Of course, they have breakfast and dinner with us and I treat them to a dinner or two at the steakhouse a couple of nights so they can have a nice quiet dinner together. We do have some questions, yes, I am a very experienced cruiser, this week I be on the Breeze and it be my 90th cruise so far, but I have never done a B2B, always rather just have more cruises in a year than one long one, so I have a few questions: For those of you have done a B2B: 1- Did you find it was too long? 2- I do recall going on 8 night cruises to really be tired of food by the 7/8th day, does this happen to you? 3- Do you feel it would be too much for children ages at that time soon to be 5 and 3? The boys do go to restaurants with them, they are extremely behaved, but I feel maybe it is too long out of their environment as it will be a 8 night cruise plus the night before the cruise in Port Canaveral and they are driving from N.C. Any thoughts? 4- I assume they do not have a luggage service that would pick up or take our luggage from the Liberty to the Mardi Gras?
  17. This will be our first cruise on the Liberty and I see they have.a coffee shop, but I cannot find it on the ship maps. Does anyone know where it is located?
  18. So I just got back off the Liberty and I can honestly say this is my first cruise out of many that I can start to tell Carnival cutbacks are starting to be noticed!! Overall I enjoy the ship and the cruise but their were times with you could tell they did not have many employees around to help you as compared in the past. Any questions please feel free to ask!!
  19. Still looking at cruise options for our girls cruise next year. I've narrowed the choices down to two. I don't want anything longer than 4 days cause I'll be leaving my little one home with dad and grandma. Option 1: Carnival Liberty 4 Day Bahamas Cruise Monday thru Friday Port Canaveral Nassau Half Moon Cay Fun Day at Sea Port Canaveral Option 2: Carnival Conquest 4 Day Western Caribbean Monday thru Friday Miami Key West Cozumel Fun Day at Sea Miami We are looking to book either a Suite or something with a larger balcony to give us more room. There will be three of us in the cabin. On the Liberty, we would book either an Aft Wrap or Junior Suite. On the Conquest, we would book either an Aft-Extended Balcony or Ocean Suite (the Aft Wraps and Jr. Suites on this ship don't accommodate three guests). Prices are all within the same range ($50 delta from least to most expensive) except for the Aft Extended which is about $80 less than the next least expensive cabin. But honestly if we book the Conquest, we will likely go with the Ocean Suite anyway. I have never been on either of these ships but have sailed on sister ships the Valor, Glory and Freedom, so I'm familiar with the general layout. I know the Liberty is a few years newer and both were upgraded a few years ago. I've also been to all of the ports these itineraries hit. So I'm really just looking for anything that might make one ship stand out over the other. Any feedback would be great!
  20. I will be cruising this Friday for a quick turn and burn cruise on Liberty. I wanted to know ahead of time what 3 liter bottles of alcohol were available on liberty as I collect them and wanted to plan to either bring my luggage or if they don't have anything new I would not and pack light as I am planned. Thanks in advance!
  21. Where can I find current ones? Or are all four night CCL cruises use the same menu?
  22. Can anyone tell me how good the internet is if I pay for the premium plan. I read a lot of rules. This is from Carnivals website: " Restrictions: Only one device at a time can connect to wi-fi. Not all ships have internet available for purchase prior to sailing. All internet plans can be purchased once onboard. Satellite internet speed may vary depending on location and time of day Video streaming sites such as Hulu and Netflix are blocked Access to certain sites such as mature or violent content is blocked Cellular-network-dependent WiFi Calling and Facetime services are also not supported VPN connections are not supported - discuss your VPN limitations with your company’s IT department if you are planning to work while sailing. We are not able to change your settings onboard. No refunds after plan is activated on board Pricing for plans purchased pre-cruise vary from plans purchased at time of sailing Can I still receive iMessages and use facebook messenger or facebook video chat. I will take the plan for the whole cruise.
  23. I'm trying to decide on which ship to cruise out of Galveston next Feb. Carnival Dream - 5 night Western = Sea, Cozumel, Progreso, Sea Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas - 7 night Western = Sea, Sea, Cozumel, Puerto Costa Maya, Roatan, Sea I've sailed on the Liberty class before (as well as Voyager & Oasis class), but not the Dream class (Vista, Paradise, and a few other smaller ships). I really liked the hot tubs on the Liberty that hang out over the edge giving a great view. What intrigues me the most about the Dream is the spa...I've heard wonderful things about the spa on this class & have never done that before. My hubby & I like to hang out by the pool & the hot tubs normally so I can see this as a big perk for the Dream, but it's only a 5 night cruise and those extra 2 days on the Liberty would be nice. Has anyone been in the spa on the Liberty class? Thoughts on it vs the Dream's spa??? Also, I've only been to Cozumel on these itineraries...thoughts on the other stops? Thanks, Jody!
  24. I definitely wasn't expecting this cruise. I've been trying forever to convince some friends to try one. They just didn't want to. Finally, I don't know what was said that convinced them, but we booked it less than 2 months ago. We stayed with some of my friend's family in Orlando. They had a guest house, which was great. Stopped by City Walk to do the City Walk stuff. Also went to downtown Orlando at night time. Never been there before. It was a good time. We were going to Uber to the port and then take the shuttle back. Gocanaveral site has $15 transfer one-way. Tough to beat! However, we were offered a free ride by his family. The "4-day Carnival Bahamas cruise" has so many negative connotations around it on the internet that I almost hate talking about it as people shrug it off as some vomit-filled, frat-boy party, at a motel, in a third-world, war-ridden country. Honestly, all of that stuff is overplayed. I was actually hoping for a little more of a party cruise than normal, but it was not that way. The crowd was no different than my 7 day cruise crowd IMO. The people were having a good time, as always, but it was never like what you hear. This was my third trip to Nassau. Another thing people love to hate. For my last two trips, we went to Sandals, and loved it. Wanted to mix it up this time. Stopped at Atlantis to check it out and go to the casino. Weren't there too long. However, it was nice to finally see instead of just in the distance. It's huge! Then we went to Cabbage Beach and had a blast! The $20 all you can drink coconuts w/rum were a huge hit and everyone around us was having a great time. I've had a great time every time I have been to Nassau. The beaches are beautiful too. First trip to Princess Cays. I'm not here to compare it to another well-known private island, except for saying the setup is much of the same. Other than that, it's its own island! I was there to enjoy what it has. We relaxed heavily there. I always enjoy the island BBQ Carnival does. This was the first time I've snorkeled in a few cruises, and I'm glad I did. From the beach, it didn't look like you would see much. Once I finally ventured out, I saw all kinds of corals and beautiful fish. Someone nearby claimed to have seen a big spiny lobster too. Food was great, as always. Did not eat anything I didn't like. Guys and Blue Iguana are staples for me. I'd say the unsung hero is the Deli, even with its newer menu. The internet was quick to point out how it is "premade" and therefore a "cutback". However, don't get confused with prepackaged and prepared minutes before. The Buffalo chicken and truffle fries are my fav that weren't there before. I also got around to trying the meatball. Outstanding. I also went a bit outside of my comfort zone and ordered the Indian vegetarian dish in the MDR. Never having eaten much Indian food, nor being a vegetarian, it never sounded good to me. That is one I will definitely order again in the future! Also went with the tried and true flat iron. I usually order my steaks medium, but know to get this medium rare. It came out great! So we finally tried Cheers. We certainly more than "broke even." However, I don't think we will do that again (possibly on another shorter cruise, but still doubtful) We felt like had to over-drink so we did. Never getting out of control drunk, just bloated and sluggish. It's just too much sugar. I always visit Alchemy, and did so more this time. Tried a few new things, which was fun. The Alchemy staff was fun. We made it a point to stop by there every night. I tried the famous Grey Goose VX in the casino, which is not on display. They obviously don't want the Cheers people to drink it all. I don't care for vodka, and can't see myself craving that one anymore. Honestly, the best combo for me is a bottle of Whisky/Bourbon, bring wine, bring soda, and buy a few a la carte. For another first, I did the late dining. I didn't want it, but was out-voted. I survived by pushing up my late night snack to when I returned on the boat lol. It worked out better than I had expected, however, it still got in the way of night life plans a few times. I really prefer the early dining. The staff was great. Our main server was a little quiet, but did not miss a beat. The other two brought great energy. We've always loved our dining team and the fixed dining time is just part of the experience for me. Service was good all around. My room steward was much better than my last few. Definitely didn't avoid us, and would even come up to me if he saw me at the end of the hall. Even though I never need anything else than a once a day servicing.
