Carnival Liberty Review

Review of Carnival Liberty

The 2005-built Carnival Liberty cruise ship is the 4th of all 5 Conquest-class vessels - with sisterships Conquest, Freedom, Glory, Valor. This series preceded the new Dream-class trio of newbuilds. In 2011, Liberty became the first CCL liner overhauled as part of the USD 0,5 billion "Fun Ship 2.0" drydock refurbishment project - a multi-year program centered on adding "signature" dining and entertainment venues to all older vessels in the fleet.

The vessel (IMO number 9278181) is currently Panama-flagged (MMSI 371083000) and registered in Colon.

History - construction and ownership

Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) is a US shipping company, trademarked brand and subsidiary of Carnival Corporation (shipowner). CCL was founded in 1972 as an independent company by Ted Arison (1924-1999, co-founder of NCL Norwegian). 

CCL has the Corporation's largest fleet as number of vessels and GT-tonnage (ship sizes/volumes and passenger capacities). In 2023, CCL had ~9% (by revenue) and ~19% (passengers) share of the cruise industry's worldwide market. In 2024, the parent company (Carnival Corporation) had ~51% stake in the US$64+ billion industry.

Carnival Liberty cruise ship

The 3000-passenger ship Carnival Liberty and the sisterships are larger versions of earlier Destiny-class CCL liners, as well as more feature-filled. More space reveals into additional decks, more bars and lounges, an upscale steakhouse, and well-proportioned public areas.

Decks and Cabins

Carnival Liberty staterooms (1489 total, in 27 grades) include 54 Suites, 521 Balcony, 330 Oceanview and 566 Inside cabins, including 29 wheelchair-accessible (in all cabin categories). The ship has no "family cabins" but instead offers connecting rooms in various categories. Most cabins are sized 170-185 ft2 (16-17 m2). Cabin balconies are sized 35-75 ft2 (3-7 m2). The ship has 3 types of suites - Captain's, Grand, Ocean. The largest are Captain's Suites (500 ft2 / 46 m2 plus 150 ft2 / 14 m2 terrace).

The boat has 13 passenger decks, of which 8 are with cabins. Over 50% of all staterooms are outside, 60% of those are with balconies.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

On Carnival Liberty, the two main dining rooms offer traditional dinner with set times and tablemates or flexible dining, via "Your Choice Dining" Carnival program. Silver Olympian Restaurant is nicer of the duo. It is located aft and framed by 3 walls of windows. Golden Olympian is positioned in a central spot, but both offer the same menu. At dinner, vegetarian and low-carb fare is served, as well as Spa Carnival choices. Cuisine often exceeds expectations, especially at Harry's Supper Club and the complimentary Guy's Burger Joint, not to mention the fish-and-chips bar, sushi station and also the dining room, where all waiters sing and dance. The casual two-level Emile's buffet offers a number of food stations with a variety of choices, including a salad bar, deli, dessert station, daily regional cuisines. The 24-hour room service provides a limited selection of items.

Carnival Liberty Wiki

Fun Ship 2.0 upgrade was done in 2016. The vessel was christened by Mira Katherine Sorvino (1967-born US actress). After drydock refurbishment in 2011, Liberty became the first Carnival liner with "Fun Ship 2.0" upgrade. It is also the first Fun Ship with "Seaside Theater" - CCL's huge outdoor LED screen for movies (12x22 ft, or 3,7x6,7 m) on Lido Deck.

Carnival Liberty cruise ship

Liberty is of Carnival's Conquest-class liners (Fincantieri Monfalcone-built), with sisterships ConquestFreedomGloryValor. In April 2017, Carnival Cruise Line announced the names of a cruise booking record-breaking couple from Florida - Bernard and Janice Caffary. The retired couple had booked its 200th Carnival cruise on Carnival Liberty leaving out of Port Canaveral. This record was achieved in 15 years (first booking in 2002), meaning they averaged over 13 Carnival cruises a year and spending 878 days at sea with the company - the equivalent of nearly 2 1/2 years. The company honored the couple with welcoming signage throughout the Port Canaveral cruise terminal. They also were guests of honor during special onboard VIP celebrations. In 2017, the couple already had 30 more Carnival cruises booked.

Drydock 2016 was in the period December 1-16.

In 2021 (October) Carnival Liberty was drydocked at Navantia Shipyard (Cadiz Spain), mainly for general maintenance (technical and routine) works and also repainting (received CCL's new livery).
