Please enter your review. Cruise Critic Review Carnival Liberty Mediterranean Cruise 10/22 - 11/3

Before I even begin to offer a Cruise Critic report, I first have to report that this will be done with a slight slant, and that being one with a handicapped condition. Back in August, I had the unfortunate luck in tearing my Achilles tendon - ouch, it hurt! I progressed from the black boot cast to a brace, but needed the use of crutches to get around. Originally my doctor did not know if I would need surgery and offered to write a medical note to cancel this cruise. For me that wasn't an option, and I promised that I would not do anything rash..So, with the aid of physical therapy and a series of three cortisone shots I was good to go as long as I used one crutch to keep my weight off of my leg and not twist or turn it in any unusual ways.  For a gimpy blonde I could get along fairly well.

The second slant is that I was traveling with a group of wonderful gals from a cruising club I joined five years ago- Just-Us-Girls, aka the "jugs." We are a group of women over 40 who have gotten together from all over the United States to share cabins and good times. Some, like in my case, have husbands who work and can not take the time out for cruising. Others are widowed, divorced or simply single. In any case, we all have really enjoyed our cruises together. However, I can't give any perspective to the cruise night life that traveling with my husband might involve. I must say that it appeared that many couples were enjoying the music and dancing opportunities.
