New Carnival Cruise Ship “Liberty” Launches With Mediterranean Itinerary
by Roy Witman © 2008

Something has been missing from the Carnival cruise ship lineup for years. While the Carnival cruise company has long been known for creating some of the most thrilling destination packages in the business, they've never ventured into the Mediterranean. That is, not until now!

This newly christened ship (the Carnival cruise ship “Liberty”) will take you to thrilling European destinations. Slated for her maiden voyage July 20, 2005, “Liberty” will bring eight new 12-day excursions. Travelers can look forward to a new cost-effective way to see Europe including such beautiful and historic ports as Naples, Italy; Barcelona, Spain; Cannes, France and more.

The “Liberty” will also operate a 16-day, transatlantic voyage departing from Rome (Civitavecchia) and arriving at Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Ports of call on this Carnival cruise will be Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Malaga, Spain; Funchal (Madeira), Portugal, and St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles.

In addition, Carnival's “Liberty” is scheduled to sail into the Bahamas and the Caribbean departing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, starting this November. These six- and eight-day tours will visit George Town, Grand Cayman; Cozumel, Mexico; Freeport and Nassau, Bahamas; San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas/St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands; Antigua, Lesser Antilles; Tortola/Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands; Limon, Costa Rica, and Colon, Panama.

In between ports, passengers can enjoy a truly luxurious vessel whose interior design boasts the fine craftsmen of Europe. Ironwork, masonry, pottery and painting are central elements found throughout the design schemes of “Liberty,” bringing to life the best “the Med ” has to offer.

Travelers will enjoy innovative additions to this new Carnival cruise ship such as body art in the Tattoos Dance Club, distinctive tableware (inspired by jeweler Harry Winston) in Harry's - a reservations- only supper club - and expansive children's and teen facilities.

Rather be outdoors? A 1400-seat poolside café and the Seaside Theater (with its 12-foot high, 22- foot wide, giant screen LCD TV) are available. This 70,000-watt system delivers concert quality sound whether showing movies, sporting events or music performances. And no movie would be complete without oversized lounge chairs, drink specials, popcorn and more? How about a movie star?

Oscar-winning actress Mira Sorvino has been named godmother of this newest Carnival cruise ship. Sorvino has appeared in such blockbuster films as “Mighty Aphrodite,” “Romy and Michele's High School Reunion,” “Barcelona” and “Quiz Show.” She is a talented actress and diligent activist with organizations such as Stop Violence Against Women and Amnesty International. Carnival Cruise Lines is honored to have Sorvino onboard.
