Review of Carnival Liberty

Carnival Liberty cruise ship was launched in 2005 as the 4th of all 5ve Conquest class vessels - the series which preceded the new Dream-class trio. In 2011, Liberty became the first Carnival 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.

History - construction and ownership

Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) is an US company, trademarked brand and subsidiary of Carnival Corporation (shipowner). CCL was founded in 1972 as independent company by Ted Arison (1924-1999, co-founder of NCL Norwegian). Carnival Cruise Lines has Corporation's largest fleet as both number of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). CCL has over 1/5 of cruise industry's worldwide market.

The 110,320-ton, 2,974-passenger cruise ship Carnival Liberty and her Conquest-class sister ships ConquestValor, Glory and Freedom, are among the biggest in the fleet of Carnival. They are basically larger versions of earlier Destiny-class ships, as well as more feature-filled. More space reveals into additional decks, even more bars and lounges, an upscale steak house, and well-proportioned public areas.

Carnival Liberty itinerary program is based on week-long Eastern Caribbean cruises leaving from Bridgetown and San Juan. Feature port destinations include St Thomas, St Kitts, St Lucia, St Maarten. The ship also sails from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas, Mexico, Roatan, Grand Turk. Starting March 2016, Liberty is sailing out of Galveston to Mexico with 3- and 4-day itineraries to Cozumel and Progreso.

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.

Carnival Liberty wiki

  • Fun Ship 2.0 upgrade in 2016
  • The vessel was christened by Mira Katherine Sorvino (American actress).

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 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.
