My mom loves to cruise and wanted my cousin to experience cruising for the first time. We chose this sailing since it was out of nearby Port Canaveral, included a private island, and was on a larger ship with upgrades. We thought 4 days was a good length for a first-time cruiser. We also found a good price for a balcony cabin.
Getting around the port parking was a little confusing. There are signs telling you to take your parking ticket with you. They want you to pay after the cruise but before you head to your car. However, the exit had both a scanner to read your paid ticket and a person to take cash. Mom is Platinum so embarkation was easy. They take your photo just before you go thru security screening which was different.
The Liberty is an older ship so she has “bumps and bruises” but is clean considering how much traffic she gets. Our cabin 7334 was comfortable but had the dated Carnival orange interior. Balcony had two chairs and a table. Our cabin steward was SO nice! In fact all of the Carnival employees we encountered we exceptionally friendly (except for one server in the main DR at brunch on our sea day).
Be sure to explore the entire beach front. There is an observation tower and a special area for children with play areas and kiddie pool. Bring your mask and snorkel. At one dock there is an observation pavilion from which people feed the fish and you can snorkel in the middle of them. Awesome!
