A sneak peek inside the Carnival Liberty cruise ship

Carnival Cruise’s tag line is the Fun Ships and with all the activities and nooks on board to hang out in, let alone the Caribbean destinations we spent sunny days wandering through, I concur. You won’t find a mobility scooter on these ships, but you will find an outdoor movie screen and water slide.

Here is a look around so you’ll know what to expect:

Carnival cruises leaves Miami

We pulled out of Miami alongside this sister ship and watching the city become the Florida Keys

Carnival Liberty

Peering down into the atrium, we decided for exercise we would take the stairs. They do have lifts for those who can’t be bothered!

Carnival Liberty

Then it was off to find a pozzy by the pool – and the cocktail of the day 🙂

Carnival Liberty pool slide

Families and adults alike whizzed down the slide in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. As you do.

Carnival Liberty movies

In the evenings you can watch a show indoors, or sit under the stars and watch a movie here

Carnival Liberty Disco floor

I poked my nose into the disco. This is for the youngies and not so’s to dance the night away.

Carnival sports bar

Grab a drink and a game at the Sports Bar – or send your blokes here while you hit the spa!

Red Frog Rum Bar

Or head out to the deck and enjoy the cocktail of the day at the Red Frog Rum Bar

Carnival dining room

The Golden Olympian Restaurant where you’ll get your own table for the week

Carnival cruise ship dining

This is the Silver Olympian Restaurant, just as ornate for dinners

Carnival Liberty Art auction

We loved the art auctions just for the chance to see an etching like this, hand signed by Picasso in 1934. Can’t remember what it went for but REALLY wanted it!

Carnival Liberty casino

My sister and I set ourselves a daily limit of $20 at the casino. For some reason she always ended up better off.

Carnival Liberty piano bar

For live piano and a drink away from the throng, this bar is clever and buzzing – altho not during the day. Clearly.

Venetian Palace Carnival Liberty

On sea days the Venetian Palace is a comedy and games venue and at night it’s where musical shows are performed

Carnival Liberty cabin

60% of cabins have balconies and I would definitely recommend this so you can while away your afternoons in private. King beds can be split into twins.

Carnival Liberty towels

By the end of the week this could be your towel collection created by your cabin boy each day. You can also attend a class and learn how to make them!

Cozumel Mexico

First stop: Cozumel Mexico. These folks wanted to be paid for a photo so I snuck one. We went on a kayak tour and roamed the town buying trinkets and drinking margaritas 🙂

Carnival Liberty Caymans

Second stop: Cayman Islands and Stingray City where playing with wild stingrays is normal. That’s my brother.

Carnival Liberty Jamaica

Last stop: Jamaica where we both bought paintings from this guy that still remind us our awesome cruise in the Caribbean!
