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

Recommended Posts

I'm a big fan of Carnival, so no bashing, but you have to admit that picture of Wal-Mart being advertised on the big screen is funny! :D:p:D

 

Thank you for making me almost snort coffee out of my nose, Mike!

When I returned to our cabin Tracy was ready for the gym. Afterward Tracy, Arielle and I went to brunch. For the past 3 cruises I’ve been trying to get Mitch out of bed to join us for brunch, but it hasn’t happened yet! It’s not like we go early, we got there at 11 am. Arielle and I had the Carne Y Huevos (Filet Mignon & Eggs); I always supplement it with a side order of bacon & sausages.

Tracy had the Grilled Salmon Fillet.

We didn’t do much in the afternoon other than lying out in the sun. Tracy and I did go to the aft pool for our meet & greet but we did not find anyone. Everyone was supposed to wear Mardi Gras beads but we did not see any. We were not wearing any either so I can’t fault anyone else for not clearly identifying themselves.

 

Tonight was the first elegant night and since we had ‘Your Time Dining’ we chose to go at 7 pm. Tracy and I got snackish early so we went to the Taste Bar for a bite.

I like it when they show you were you are when you are cruising.

 

So you stayed in Ft. Lauderdale when you cruised out of Miami? Our cruise goes out of Ft. Lauderdale. I wonder how far that Doubletree is from the port?

TicketS53 - loving your review, I loved the Liberty thought she was a beautiful ship. Heading out on the Dream in January so looking forward to your review on her. I noticed you have cruised on a lit of Carnival ships but you haven't been on my favorite the Spirit. She is now home ported in Australia, love that ship.

One of the few times we can get the whole family together is dinner time. ‘Your Time Dining’ is in the Diamond Olympian Dining Room.

Did you take the cruise package at Doubletree? I wonder if it is cheaper to take a cab on your own? Did you go out of Port Everglades?

Tracy and I went to the Punchliner Comedy Club to see Tom Foss. Good show!

Then we rushed over to the Stage Lounge to see Arielle audition for Legends. She auditioned for the part of Britney Spears and got it.

Keep it coming, Mike. I love your reviews. Thanks for all the photos around the ship. We were on the Liberty back in 2011; it was one of the best cruises we've ever had.

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

 

Thanks for the reply and for posting the patters.

 

It's amazing how different ships look early in the morning before everyone get up! It is so peaceful at that time :)

Thank you. I assume you meant Breeze and not Dream.

We have cruised on Spirit sister ships, Miracle and Pride so I know why you love her. :)

Loving your review. We sailed on the Breeze in May on a different itinerary. We absolutely loved her. Next year we will be sailing on the Freedom with the same itinerary you did on the Breeze.

We skipped breakfast and disembarked at 9:30 am. We took a taxi to Mr. Sanchos Beach Club. Taxi rate was $16 for 1-4 persons each way. You can buy your tickets in advance for the all-inclusive day pass at $50 a person. They have a limit of 200 people for the all-inclusive. They also have a pay as you go section which is separate from the all-inclusive. Knowing this was low season I purchased our tickets on arrival. Here is an excerpt from their internet site.

 

 

Enjoy one of the most popular all inclusive beach day passes at famous Mr. Sanchos Beach Club offering an original Mexican Caribbean atmosphere. At this white, sandy, mile long beach we offer you the best value for a truly indulging beach day pass including all you want to order from the menu (excluding lobster), all you can drink bar (excluding imported beers), snorkel equipment, ocean kayaks, lockers, private beach side tables with umbrellas, beach chairs, lounge beds, swim up pool bar, fresh water showers, changing rooms, beach volleyball, ping pong, hammocks, separate swimming area, and more!”

Enjoying your review and pics!

 

Can you tell me if it's a long walk down the dock to the shops? We're stopping in Cozumel on our cruise next year and my older sister ( 80's) will be with us. I'm wondering if she will be able to walk down that dock. She is very mobile just not good at long distances.

 

Thanks.

Our ride to Mr. Sanchos took about 10 minutes.

It was not busy; there were 4-5 waiters and only about 20 people in the all-inclusive section. Therefore we had our own personal waiter. This meant we never had to leave our area to get a meal or drink.
