Carnival Liberty: Photo tour & overview
Guess which is the first ship to serve up gourmet Guy Fieri burgers daily? How about one with a sports bar that combines live sports on TV with lively competition through the latest EA SPORTS titles, not to mention delicious drinks? It's the same ship with tacos and burritos on Lido deck, made fresh while you wait, plus two great bars — one rum-slinging, one tequila-wielding — dueling for your heart. These are just a few of the many amenities to expect from Carnival Liberty.
