November 2016 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Western
We love Carnival, and are loyalty members. We even have stock in Carnival. We loved the Ports of Call, and we had a good time with dinner partners. The comedy was excellent. Our disappointment was with the staff of this particular vessel. We had old open milk cartons from previous guest in our room refrigerator as a greeting. One of the staff who lead a majority of the trivia games was so stuffy and serious, he took a lot of fun out of the experience. However, Tommy was terrific when he did the games. We will return to Carnival, because we believe it was not a broad Carnival experience, but a management of Freedom problem. LOVE Jamaica. Snorkeling in Grand Turk, and shopping in Cozumel. (Well, shopping in Jamaica was a must as well.) No problems large enough to take our smiles. We like the food and selections. I know that some people complain, but I eat all the shrimp that I can get my hands on during a trip. I would go again, but may select other vessels when possible. They didn't even have our VIFP pins. That's a small thing, but it's a keepsake that has meaning to us. VERY disappointed in the lack of preparation. It's not like we jumped aboard and they weren't aware of the passenger count! Love Guys Burgers, Swirls, and main dining.
