April 2014 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Eastern
Embarkation was a breeze. We arrived at 1:30 and walked right on, including being able to get access to our room.
Grand Turk, San Juan, St Maarten & St Thomas were all fabulous ports of call! We felt safe at all times and everything was very clean.
Sea Days - plenty of deck space and chairs to go around. The Serenity area for adults only is really nice. Would like to see some areas that are for "quiet" though. Amazing how loud some adults can actually be.
Steak house - while we don't typically do this, we did on this cruise and loved it!
Dining room - not what it used to be. Food isn't very flavorful and the desserts lack the decadent taste. But, we still managed to find enough food to eat throughout the cruise. The ice cream and frozen yogurt stations are great. The pizza line is always far too long and the one person ever working can't keep up.
The ship is still in great condition and the waitstaff certainly seemed to come across as though they were treated well, we always love to see them smile and enjoy their the work.
