Carnival Liberty Cruise Review by BandBWCsmom
- Sail Date: September 2018
- Destination: Bahamas
- Cabin Type: Ocean View
There were some signs of wear to the ship, but not nearly as dramatic as some of the more critical reviews. The only really noticeable I caught was some around the pool areas (of course ... they get used and abused) and the mirror in our cabin.
The food is not amazing, but it is good and abundant. We wouldn't do the steakhouse again. In our opinion, it wasn't worth the price. But, I would order a nice steak again in the regular dining room Our favorites were the Mongolian Wok (you do get veggie withdrawal at times) and Guy's Burger Joint. Even when there was a long line, you could get Guy's burgers fast. We only did the pizza place once as the attendant spoke virtually no English and it was hard to get a correct order. I did see people eating it in abundance so I assume was good.
Our favorite adult experiences were the comedy shows and the piano bar. We stayed out of the casino except to pass through as every smoker on the boat seemed to be lighting up in there constantly. The comedians (John and Percy) were absolutely hilarious at both their PG and R shows and each day was new content. Gilbert, the piano player, was absolutely awesome and entertaining. We enjoyed the Love and Marriage Show alot as well.
Our kids absolutely adored Camp Ocean. They were only together during the "Kids' Choice" times as we have a four and seven year old. But both loved their groups and activities and they complained when we came to get them. We even went on-island one day without them. The staff fed them lunch and they were as happy as can be. Both came home with prizes from playing bingo and with the various crafts they created. We were nervous about if they would like it, but each night at dinner they both wanted to skip the dessert course so we could get them to the Camp Ocean ASAP. Hope that gives other parents some comfort.
I will recommend getting day passes for the British Colonial Hilton when in Nassau and skipping the Carnival-hosted excursions. My kids had an absolutely amazing time going back and forth from their beach lagoon and the pool.
Additionally, the faster to the fun is worth it with small kids. Stateroom is ready when you get onboard and getting on and off the ship is a breeze.

FreeportWe just went to Port Lucaya in Freeport and did some shopping. Nothing too exciting. Easy enough to get off the boat and catch a roundtrip cab. It's $10 each way.View All 1,342 Freeport Cruise Port Reviews
