Carnival Liberty

A giant playground that's big on fun, fun, fun

The spectacular 110,000-ton Carnival Liberty made her debut in the Mediterranean on July 20, 2005, and since then has become a firm favourite cruising both the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Miami.

More than three football fields in length and towering 207ft at its highest point, she became one of the largest passenger vessels at sea, featuring four restaurants and 13 passenger decks with 22 lounges and bars, including a sports bar, wine bar, a three-deck-high theater showcasing Vegas-style revues, a piano bar and various other live music venues.

Carnival Liberty features an interior design that celebrates the work of fine craftsmen. The central theme is certainly evident in the Grand Villa Garden Atrium, where ironworking, masonry, pottery making and painting come together to create an elegant park-like atmosphere.

The main show lounge, called Venetian Palace, captures the artistic variety and quality for which the fabled Italian city of canals is renowned, while the art of fine tableware is featured in the Gilded and Sterling dining rooms.

Harry’s, the ship’s reservations-only supper club, takes its cue from the magnificent pieces of famed jewelry by designer Harry Winston.√äGloves Sports Bar explores the role of leatherworking, particularly as it relates to sports. Body art is the craft featured in the Tattoos Dance Club, and photography in the Paparazzi wine bar.

Carnival Liberty offers a wide range of signature Fun Ship amenities - four swimming pools and a 214-ft water slide, a 13,300 sq-ft spa, expansive children’s and teen facilities, and a multitude of dining options, including two two-deck-high formal restaurants, a 1,400-seat poolside eatery and an intimate reservations-only supper club.

Liberty also houses an Internet cafe, a jogging track, a patisserie, full casino gambling, and a multi-level theater showcasing lavish Vegas-style production shows, just one of several entertainment venues on board.

Particular emphasis has been paid to children’s facilities, which include a 4,200sq-ft play area and a 1,800sq-ft teen club and video game room.

Of the ship’s 1,487 staterooms, 60 per cent offer either an ocean view or balcony, and two new 650-sq-ft “deluxe penthouse suites” have ben added.
