Am wondering if anyone can help us out. Cruising the Carnival Liberty 6 night Western tour on July 1st and wonder - is there 1 or 2 formal nights on a 6 night, how is the piano and karokee (sp?) bars on this ship, where there cool activities for the teens-is the Supper Club worth the extra $?
How about the spa - any good deals?
Thanks for your help.

We were just off the Liberty 2 weeks ago, and had a wonderful time. You will love the ship! There are two formal nights. One is Monday (Freeport) night and the other is Thursday. Lots of people dressed up for the first, not so many for the second.
The piano bar was fun. Karaoke wasnt IMO. It was just a bunch of teens who kept taking turns. Of course the week you sail, it may be totally different.
Sorry didn't use the spa, but I have read that you get better deals on port days. We didn't go to the Supper Club, nor do we have teens, so can't help you there. Have a great cruise!
You will love the Liberty! We are scheduled for our 2nd Liberty cruise on March 25th. Two formals - didn't realize the second was "optional", but I guess it was more relaxed now that I think about it.
Harry's is worth the extra charge - particularly for a romantic dinner when you are not in a hurry. I wouldn't take the teens, however - unless they really enjoy fine dining. Make your reservations when you board - they book up fast~!
That's interesting, and must be fairly new policy.
I actually think Carnival (and other cruise lines) should likely drop the suggested Formal night dress codes across the board, since they don't enforce them at all.
On the Liberty, on formal night, I was dining with the Captain, Staff Captain, Hotel Manager, Staff Chief Engineer, and Head Engineer.... several other passengers walked right by our table, entering the dining room in torn jeans, and t-shirts.... no one made any move to stop them from entering.
I'd personally like to see them designate every evening casual, rather than maintain a facade of something more.
geez whats with all the changes. Can't understand why the need to have it one way on one cruise then a different way on another cruise. Oh wait I forgot. Consistency, the cruiselines don't deal well with this concept.
4 nights of casual elegant? What happened to resort casual?
Husband and I just got back from our very first cruise - Liberty Western 6 night. Everything was more than expected - food, shows, balcony was pure magic late at night, loved the glitz and glamour. The two "formal" nights were lots more relaxed than expected - I stressed far too much pre-cruise about clothes. However, it made the dinners a little more special to dress up and do something a little different than an ordinary restaurant dinner at home.
