A cruise to the Caribbean had been on my bucket list for awhile. So, on April 16, 2017, me and my hubs went on the Carnival Liberty Cruise Ship for the first time on our much needed vacation.
The room we purchased was one with a balcony that we was recommended by a friend. It was so worth it to upgrade to a balcony for an extra $300. I highly recommend it too. You have the balcony for privacy to sit to view the beautiful blue ocean in peace and quiet and to take it all in. It was so relaxing and just being there with my husband for some needed relaxation is just what we needed to escape life for a couple of days together. There no wifi out in the middle of the ocean unless you purchase a international wifi package between the United States waters and the Bahamas. It was so nice to us to unplug from the cellphones.
Facts to know about the ship:
- wifi was $5 for the package
- soda packages called bottomless bubbles can be purchased at the Lobby, Casino, and Pool Bars for $8.50 per day and kids are $5.95 a day
- No plastic bottles allowed, only cans are allowed onboard
- Spas & Hair Salons are additional packages that can be purchased
- Fitness classes are additional packages
- Gift shops are onboard to shop til you drop
We ported at Bahamas the next morning. There are many beaches to visit, and things to do and visit too, but we stayed downtown for the day. We had a fun day off the ship with a carriage ride around downtown of Nassau was perfect for sight seeing with my hubs. We bought my 25th year anniversary ring at the International Diamond store there. It’s a souvenir that I will cherish forever. At the Hard Rock Cafe, we ate lunch. It was time to board the Liberty ship again, we spent all day in downtown area.
Dinner time on the ship has so many choices to choose from from a burger stand, to a buffet line for fine dining. We ended up trying all them before we left the ship.
There is a big theatre screen on the upper deck, it was relaxing to watch a movie at night. So romantic LOL. We loved it
We shopped on board in the gift shops, went to an 80’s concert. We are 80’s kids that we grew up that era, so we loved it. Overall the cruise is just what we needed and encourage anyone to cruise once and see if it’s for you. Some do get sea sick, so pack some dramamine, just in case you need it. The ship did sway some and we had to adjust to it. Thankfully, we didn’t get sea sick.
It was an awesome cruise! I am now addicted to cruising. 🛳❤️
