bacqua13,

I have taken cruises on both ships in question.

First of all, there is no "bad choice" among them. They both offer a good, mainstream cruise product.

Personally, I did prefer "Carnival Liberty" for the simple reason that I found the food and service onboard to be better than onboard "Jewel of the Seas". Also, "Carnival Liberty" has larger standard cabins and the passenger flow is better IMHO because "Jewel of the Seas" lacks another stairtower.

"Jewel of the Seas" is the prettier ship from the outside and has a better connection to the sea as far as the interior spaces are concerned (lots of huge windows everywhere. But once outside, I prefered "Carnival Liberty's" unobstructed-view teakwood decks to "Jewel of the Seas'" Bolideck and Astroturf decks with most forward views "filtered" by glass. "Jewel of the Seas" has a superb accessible bow, however.

Whatever you decide, I'm sure you will be making a good choice.

If you liked the Enchantment, you'll love the Jewel. You may want to take into consideration you get perks for being a repeat customer if you join the crown and anchor society.

bacqua13,

I don't think its possible to give a general reply to that. On both ships, in heavy seas, you will feel a similar amount of movement, while in calm seas, you likely won't.

This type of question is too subjective for anyone to answer. What is "less movement" to me may not be so for you. And I'd have to be able to compare both ships, simultaneously, in identical sea and weather conditions. You just can't do it. No one can.

I agree with Raoul. Both ships will probably have similar rides in similar seas. I really wouldn't let this question determine which ship I took.

Sadly, my work schedule won't allow me to go on the maiden voyage of the Liberty Of The Seas - which is the May 19,2007 cruise. My cruise will be the 6th voyage of Liberty.

I was on the maiden voyage of the Freedom Of The Seas and made many friends, who are all going to be on the Liberty maiden cruise. They are known as the Pink Boa Society. And yes, the ladies wore pink boas on numerous occasions! I hope to hook back up with that group for the maiden voyage of the Genesis ship.

The Liberty is a Freedom-class vessel. There are supposed to be three ships of this class.
