The Cheers package with 30 close friends was awesome fun! The bar staff at the Red Frog Lido Rum Bar, casino bar and Alchemy bar were the Best. The craft cocktails at the Alchemy Bar were amazing! The burgers at the Burger bar were delicious and the convenience of 24/7 pizza was very nice.
This trip was a great value! Each port offered something for the entire family! I would highly recommend! The ports and excursions appeared clean and very safe. The excursions were sensitive to the needs of my elderly parents traveling with us and made sure to take extra steps to accommodate them.
Boat was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
Getting together each night with family was my favorite part and our wait staff was a big part of our enjoyment. The food tasted and looked wonderful that we received in the dining room. We took in a few of the nightly shows and really was entertained.
Dancers, shows & food in main dining rooms & waiters were outstanding. Our cabin steward, Olvin, was eager to please & I was extremely pleased to receive a $50 spa gift certificate which I used toward my 1st massage onboard a Carnival cruise. Shondra was my therapist & the experience was fabulous! Martin was our main dinner waiter at Posh Early Dining, 2nd floor. He & his crew were outstanding. Harta, the Bar Waiter, at dinner became my friend because I wanted a glass of Merit nightly! A few things that could use improvement were the Casino. The strong smell of smoke was horrible everywhere! They certainly need improved ventilation as I could not even go near that area. The Hairy Man contest was a joke this time as the guy who won was such a slob & no hair. There were better candidates. Wish we could choose where our dinner dining location would be before boarding, & even after boarding, have better dining choices. Oh yes, George & Ebert were our morning dining waiters & they were fabulous. They were in main dining room, lower floor, back of the ship. Don'T remember her nsme, but lady who served the "flavored" delicious coffees, as well as cookies & shakes was very friendly & efficient! Carson Rhoades was the Piano Man & very entertaining! We were not as impressed this time with the adult comedy guys. I was a bit disappointed with the shopping on the Carnival Freedom; however, it is smaller than the Carnival Magic, which we have cruised on numerous times. Overall, it was a very nice cruise, we seemed to get on & off the ship faster, & we will look forward to cruising with Carnival again soon! We truly appreciate Dream Vacations for taking care of our reservations & details to safe & have a good time. Thanks to Carnival & Dream Vacations!!!
We love cruising with Carnival. This was our 2nd cruise and we decided to cruise again with Carnival because we enjoyed our 1st cruise. Out 1st cruise was on the Carnival Imagination and this time we cruised with Carnival Freedom. The staff on both ships exceeded my expectations. The housekeepers and all dining staff greets you with a smile. The dining staff goes out of their way to accommodate you. My daughter has a few allergies to foods and after mentioning to our waitress of those foods, she suggested other options for foods that my daughter could eat. The housekeepers were prompt in tidying our rooms. All staff seemed to truly enjoy their job and saying bye at the end of the cruise was bittersweet because we created a friendship with the staff and was truly going to miss seeing them after seeing them everyday for 7 days. We made new friends with the staff and I hope to see them again in the future.
The cruise ship is beautiful. Lots of entertainment on board. Food was very good and the people are amazing. Staff's are super friendly with excellent service. They always greets you with a smile. They make your trip fun and memorable. What more I can say. This trip ( first time ) was a huge success for us family traveling with teens.
Everything was great! The only things that I wish would be improved are having someone to direct people after debarking to the luggage pick up and the shuttles back to the car. A few more food options after 2-3pm would be great also.
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.
