Overview

Originally launched in 2005 and last updated in 2016, Carnival Liberty carries 2,974 guests and 1,180 staff members. This crew-to-guest ratio means the ship can provide a higher level of personalization than its megaship competitors. Liberty is equipped with all of the "Fun Ship 2.0" amenities, including the Seaside Theater and popular dining venues like Guy's Burger Joint. Cruisers can also dine at several other restaurants and bars, including two main dining rooms, the Lido Buffet and a steakhouse (for an extra fee).

When it comes to entertainment, the ship includes the Punchliner Comedy Club, the SkyBox Sports Bar and live stage shows. Children ages 2 to 17 can play at age-appropriate youth clubs while parents relax at the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat.

As far as lodging is concerned, Carnival Liberty offers a variety of stateroom categories, all of which come with flat-screen TVs and 24-hour room service. The modest Interior and Ocean View rooms are the most affordable options, but guests looking for more space should consider Balcony and Suite accommodations.

In 2018-19, Carnival Liberty departs from Orlando for sailings in the Bahamas
