March 2016 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Western
The overall cruise was very good, but we were very disappointed to not be able to visit Belize due to high winds/rough water for safety reasons. Carnival only refunded the port fees ($16.21/person). We did not get to take the excursion to the Mayan ruins we had planned. On a very positive note, we had an excellent experience and meal doing the Chef's Table special onboard event, which included Wagyu beef in one of the seven courses. It also included a tour of the galley (where we ate four appetizers) and a magician who performed ~10-15 min. between two of the courses. Would highly recommend it, even though it is relatively expensive ($75/person). On a negative side, we had an incorrect bar charge (~$28) for drinks we did not order. It took ~3 days. 1 trip to Guest Services, 2 trips to the bar, and finally insisting that the bar manager meet personally with us to get it removed.
