Carnival Freedom

February 2016 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Western

Another Fun Carnival Cruise

We are frequent cruisers on Carnival and loved this one as much or better than the others. The Freedom is a beautiful ship, loved our balcony room and especially the adult's only Serenity space. Treated myself to a massage...doesn't get much better than that! Any Time Dining is wonderful and the musical shows were simply outstanding. Lots of fun comedians on this cruise, too. Food as usual was quite good; we always take advantage of the incredible dining room service (love the menu and amazing wait staff!) and try to fit in some Guy's Burger Joint as well. My only disappointment is that the time you are able to spend in the ports of call is just not nearly enough. With having to tender back and forth to Grand Cayman (along with all of the other cruise ship lines), you just don't have time to really enjoy an excursion. And in Jamaica, the traffic at the end of the day is insane, so we had a rather hair-raising experience trying to get back to the boat on time. Overall AMAZING vacation and we pretty much want to go back every day. Thanks, Carnival!

NorthwoodsGirl's Tips

Montego Bay, Jamaica - Not as many excursion options near Montego Bay, requiring long rides. Late afternoon traffic is HORRENDOUS; barely made it back to the ship in time. But we loved the warm and welcoming Jamaicans.
George Town, Grand Cayman - Too many ships in port at once overwhelmed the island and there were not nearly enough tender boats.
Galveston, Texas - We stayed some extra days and enjoyed it immensely. Take time to stroll the beach and enjoy a frozen treat at Rita's. Try the Cajun Greek. We loved it!
Carnival Freedom Carnival Freedom - Book only short excursions at all the ports of call...there is just not enough time. Especially in Grand Cayman where you have to tender back and forth to the ship. I loved this cruise, but I would plan only beach time if I were to take it again. Might skip Grand Cayman entirely.
