Mike & Tracy’s continuing adventures: B2B on Carnival Liberty & Carnival Breeze

Recommended Posts

Kind of confused. Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale or Miami? We have our cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale next summer and looking for places to stay. Doubletree?

Hi Michel, it was nice meeting you and part of your family. We had such a good time. We also did the Irie tour in Curacao but we must have been on a different bus. I assume your group had a bus to yourselves. Mike

.

 

Even though we had a good time I was really disappointed because they did give us a bus to ourselves. I wanted to be with your family and the others from our roll call. Hope to sail with you all again someday!

Thanks so much for the pictures of the ship. Interesting décor. Having been on Elation (over the top) and Magic (more understated), this one falls somewhere in between. I think I'll fun exploring it. Either way we are leaving from a port that is new to us, going to places we have never been before on a ship we have never sailed. Yep fits in perfectly with our 'fly by the seat of our pants' lifestyle! Can't wait! Am settling in for the rest of your review and looking forward to all of it.

Several cruises ago we started going to the steakhouse on the first night and we did the same on this cruise.

I have always had steak but after seeing Tracy try the Lobster Ravioli on our last cruise I decided to try it, Arielle did the same. I requested Baby Leaf Spinach and Fresh Mushrooms salad from the salad section instead of one of the usual sides. I wanted to eat light and save room for the cheesecake.

Arielle and Mitch skipped dessert. As usual Tracy and I really enjoyed our meals, thus the reason we keep returning to the steakhouse every cruise.

Nick the karaoke host loved Arielle’s voice and asked her to audition for the Carnival Legends. Carnival Legends is where your fellow guest performs live in the main theater, on the last sea day. More on that later.

Mike,

 

That's too bad the sauna & steam rooms aren't co-ed.

 

Can you tell me what the Fun Hop is?

Love the picture of you and Arielle and Tracy and Mitchel in the steakhouse. You can see a strong family resemblance in them.

OMG!!! Your food pics are driving me nuts!!!! I can't wait until you get to the part of the review that includes the Breeze:p Fascinated to see a review for our itinerary that is so close to our sailing date (closer than the previous reviews I have been reading). Loving your pictures of the ship as I have never been on the Liberty.

 

Keep it coming!!!!!!!!!!!!:D

Hi Mike, Excited to you your latest review. Our son and daughter-in-law will be Breezing in just 22 days. What's the likelyhood you'll get to that part of your review by then ? LOL, I have them on standby to read it if you have gotten there before they leave. If not, I know they will enjoy it once they get back.

 

We enjoyed the Breeze, thought it was beautiful. Anxious to see what you experienced, too.

I think it’s get to know your cruise director and staff and have fun touring the ship with them.

Hi Delta Dear, nice to hear from you again. I should be on the Breeze review by then. I have about 1000 photos for the Liberty review and the same for the Breeze review. Thus the reason it will take awhile. Mike
