Had a great time

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Freedom | Sail Date: Aug 15, 2015

We had a wonderful time! The entertainment crew was great, I miss Wee Jimmy!The food was very good and we were on time at every port. The only complaint is that the room was underneath the exercise room so we were woken up with the noise but when we complained they took care of it.

Great Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Freedom | Sail Date: Aug 15, 2015

For this being my first cruise with my family,  it was awesome,  too much to see so little time. Boarding the ship was good,  The entertainment was really nice.  THe crew was always cleaning the shipped look new. The food was very good especially Guys burger joint,  the only problem was nothing was open during the last night except for the pizza place and the lines were very long.

7-day cruise to key west, florida and nassau, bahamas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Freedom | Sail Date: Aug 01, 2015

good food and dining; entertainment is fair, but should be better with karaoke and more variety. Ship cleanliness is OK! Shore excursions in Key West, Florida, Freeport and Nassau, Bahamas could be better if buses are fully air-conditioned.

silver anniversary with carnival freedom

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Freedom | Sail Date: Aug 01, 2015

almost perfect except to our room, we've been assign to the second deck and it's at the very end of the ship and just above of the propeller of the ship. we're hearing the noise and some parts of our room are shaking EVERYDAY AND NIGHT. instead of getting the relaxation and a getting the sleep that we need at night for us to have energy for the next day, we can't fully enjoy the day. as a merchat marine, i know how things on a ship. this is our first time on a cruise (but not for me on a ship) just to celebrate our 25 year of our marriage and we're expecting a full enjoyment on our anniversary .

Dream of a Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Freedom | Sail Date: Aug 01, 2015

Everything was wonderful, 

The food was great, the crew were fabulous, the dinner in the dining room was unbelieveable. The service we got from everyone on this cruise right down to the couple who cleaned our room was wonderful.

Great customer service. The people.on the ship made it fun and are there to make sure you have a good time. Wish the boat would have been bigger does rock a little.

Carnival Freedom cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Freedom | Sail Date: Jul 18, 2015

The music played over the speaker system was noticeably awful.  Played in the rear pool area, buffet eating areas and through out the ship.

The same acoustic entertainment every night in the Atrium was disappointing.  Acoustic Country is not what every passenger wants to hear every night.  And because it was in the Atrium it echoed up to all decks and any rooms that were near.  Very bothersome.  The music got old in a hurry as it was played every night.

Overall the staff was great and accommodating.  Except for one interaction with a female employee at the Customer Service desk regarding our bill.  Attitude was rude.

Pizza station and Burger station were phenomenal!

Good cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Freedom | Sail Date: Jul 18, 2015

Overall this was a good cruise.  The atmosphere was happy and the whole operation ran smoothly. There were a lot of good choices for things to do on excursion days.  I liked the burrito bar and deli bar as well.  I made a nice change from the dining room.

Good experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Freedom | Sail Date: Jul 18, 2015

I'm not a cruiser, first time Ive went- a few too many people for me.

But, The saving grace was two staff members, bar waiter Javani (Jabani- can't remember the spelling) who was wonderful from the casino and dining room; and bartender Stanislav from the EA sports bar- thanks so much for a wonderful representation of your country and the cruise line. If not for you  two I would've considered this trip a loss

Second Mate

Enjoy everything the ship has to offer, you may just have to do it on different days. LOL... Keep a Daily Itienarary handy.

Take advantage of the omelette station; great stuff. Lido deck is great for all meals - provides flexibility and good food. Loved Guy's Burger Joint and the Bluelguana Cantina. Don't miss the Alchemy Bar - best on the ship! The EA Sports bar is a great place to meet like minded friends.

The Mongolian Wok was the best food for us. However, they were only opened for lunch.
