Date of Trip: April 2008
This was my first 8 day cruise (2 days at sea)on the Carnival Liberty. The Liberty is a large ship, beautiful in design color, some people may say it is too much. It has some nice lounges/bars/discos that are designed like batteries/cameras/pianos/hands & feet, which are really neat to see. The beds/bedding are very nice, feeling like a baby. Rooms are nice in size, compared to other ships, with small refrigerator and vault inside for valuables. Also nice bath robes to wear. Two dining rooms with food good most of the time. Pizza place was great. Miniature golf and large outdoor screen to see movie at night time with popcorn being served.
For a large ship, I could see where they had cut down on the midnight buffet in decorating it, compared to other ships not this size. Actually it was embarrassing to see, after seeing much larger buffets on smaller ships.
We stopped in San Juan first, and I was able to see it from afternoon till late evening, walking from 6 – 8 miles. Seeing an old fort high up, then walking all the way down to the beach. The streets are narrow, and building are painted pastel colors.
St. Thomas is beautiful with Megan’s Bay Beach, plus if you want to purchase good jewelry, without paying tax, this is the place to visit.
Antigua, it pour down rain.
Tortola, BVI is a small island that hasn’t been known too long. It has beautiful mountains and valleys., with a nice straw market close by to purchase T-shirts, etc. cheap. Also a Queens staircase of 65 steps, with a beautiful waterfall on the side.
Nassau – Bahamas Beautiful area, drove by and seen where Anna Nicole Smith is buried and where Howard Stern lives. Atlantis is a must see, at least a block or more long. Inside you will find very large pillars, and downstairs is a large aquarium.
