The service was great. The food was excellent. The ship was clean and well-maintained. The staff was attentive. The excursions we took exceeded our expectations. And, above all, the price was very very reasonable. We keep coming back to Carnival because the value we receive for our investment is outstanding.
Malcolm "Woo Hoo" C'mere Burn was the most entertaining Cruise Director we have ever been around. He was hilarious! His humor was quick, witty and current! He has an amazing ability to engage with others! He made all of the events he hosted more enjoyable! We laughed the whole time watching his facial expressions and hearing his spontaneous comments! He is our Favorite! In addition to Malcolm's amusing interactions, The Fizzy Pop Band had the most talented artists. Diana and Mateo were amazing singers who were able to perform a variety of genre from country to pop, old and new songs. Many of the songs they sang sounded better then the original recording artist. The only negative thought is that it will be difficult if not impossible to exceed the talent and abilities of all of these wonderful people. Unfortunately, we brought some friends who were first time cruisers so they are going to have very high expectations for their next cruise! What a great experience!
needs better and larger print signs for seniors on all signs on all floors directing you to cabins and activities also more clocks on ships maybe even larger printed out sign in each cabin to inform which decks have food , activities, etc
I love to lay back and relax in the sun while sipping on tasty beverages. This cruise fit the bill. An appropriate number of ship days vs on shore days. The crew was friendly and outgoing. Leizle (??) was wonderful! She always had a smile on her face and was sure to let us know that she was there for anything we needed with our room. The food was great! I will not take another cruise that stops in Jamaica. The country was not very appealing.
Our first cruise was amazing! Meredith Jester made the process of booking very easy. She was very knowledgeable and willing to answer the many questions I had, which were several! The accommodations were large and very clean. Our steward, JoJo, was wonderful. We looked forward to the animals he left for us every day. Also, he left us spa gift cards for our birthdays! The breakfast buffet was very good; lunch and dinner buffets just okay. Guy's burgers were delicious. We were a bit disappointed that the other restaurants closed by 3. We also enjoyed the Posh dining room. The servers there were great as well as the food. Please do something about the iced tea. I drink a gallon a day at home and the tea on the ship was disgusting! We loved the entertainment; from the comedy club, to the 70's nightclub and the band in the atrium (simply amazing). We will definitely cruise again!!
The Spa was amazing.The stewart was very efficient.Food was interesting as always.The Photographers where everywhere which was fun.The waiters made some mistakes but I think they where under staffed.But they worked very hard.
This Cruise was for my husband and I's anniversary, It was his first cruise and his last on Carnival. We left on Saturday and by Wednesday our hallway smelled of sewage and lasted until the last day. We were given a free coupon for pictures and because the gentlemen behind the counter didn't want to reprint, we were able to use the coupon. The food choices were horrible and not many other items to choose from. Carnival made it so you can't smoke on the balcony, however, why should I have to share the smoking deck with someone smoking pot, and security just walked by as he rolled a joint. I twisted my knee on the stairs due to having to use them so many times, because 3 of the 6 elevators had x's on them. Was not impressed at all with this cruise ship.
Favorite parts of cruise.......the water and beauty of the ocean. The balcony room is the only way to travel. Service and hospitality of all staff. And of course the food. Lots of it and delish! The comedians always top notch.
this was my first cruise and thanks to Carnival I'm hooked. The Freedom is awesome, the crew was fantastic. My Steward for my room Allan was right on it, my room was spotless, and to come back at night to the bed turned down was great. My favorite bartenders was Supha and Sompow at the Attrium bar, they knew who I was when I sat down at the bar. They rock.. And the dining experience in the Chic restaurant was outstanding, our waiter Israel made my day. He always was smiling and taking really good care of us. I loved it when they announced it was Showtime and all the waiters and hostess would come dancing down the aisles. I'm really impressed and looking forward to cruising with Carnival again.
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.
