Carnival Freedom

November 2016 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Western

A fun family event...

We had a great time.  I took my 95 year old father, WWii, Korean, and Veitnam Vet for the Veterans week cruise.  My sister and her daughter, my son and his girlfriend and one of dads long time survivng friend and her friend.  Then a couple people from my meetup came as well,

 

We had not all got the early dining option on our booking but I sent a letter to the special assitance carnival group and to my matrde freind on the Magic and asked that we all get seated for early dining, 10 person table in front of dining room so that we could get dad there on his scooter easy.

 

On my arrival, I found that had all been accomplised and we all had the same table number assigned and it was a great table.  Houston our head waiter was fun too.

 

We had a great time all cruise, we would get the big table by the RumBar on Lido each day and all enjoy breakfast and events and play spinniners.  We pretty much donminated that table during the day.

 

In the evenings after dinner we enjoyed acitivites on Deck 5 and on Veterans Day we went to the Vets event on the lounge.  Dad was so happy to have people come talk with him and they got everyone on stage to take a picture of all the Vets.

 

We had a great time and dad is still wearing his lanyard with his sail n sign card and his Veterans tag and his Jamaci Jack dog tag he got while we were ashore.  He lives in a senior center and is telling everyone about it.  He bought a nice blue Jmacia shirt to wear to remind himself and others how much fun he had.

 

This was my 8th cruise this year, 7 of them on Carnival.

My father 2nd cruise this year.

 

We are ready to go again so I have booked three for 2017 and 1 for 2018 already....

Carnival Splendor

September 2016 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Southern

Such fun being a VIP

I had a great time on this cruise.  I have found that there is a night of entertainment when they look for cruisers to be part of the cast for the show that night.  I have done that now 3 different cruises and it is a lot of fun.  I enjoyed meeting cast and had apportunity to drink with them a few times during cruise.  I enjoyed the ports as well  I had not been to any of them before.  I really liked this ship as well.  The Carnival Splender has a convertible top over the Lido deck pool and party area.  It makes the events and cruise more fun knowing the weather is not going to stop any of the fun on board.

Serenade of the Seas

May 2016 - Serenade of the Seas to Europe - Northern Europe

Ports were great...

The ports were great and the room was very nice.  I had a lot of issues with the excursion desk and front desk and spent several hours sorting things out.  The internet for the iPhone was crap mand I made them refund it, I was tired of fighting with it.  They indicated it was a known issue so duh  why did it not say that in the signup thing?

 

I liked pool and hottub hours but there was little activities set there, maybe that is normal for that location.  Not as much as a Caribbean cruise.

I enjoyed the trip but it was a little stressful first day due to weather but not the cruises fault...  I had fun and it was fun to try something new.

TXOutlw's Tips

Carnival Freedom Carnival Freedom - I have been on the Freedom several times. One feature I really like is that the hot tubs are in the same middle area as the main pool and acitivites.
Carnival Splendor Carnival Splendor - The Carnival Splender may not be the biggest or newest but the fact that they have a convertible top over Lido deck makes it a great book for all activities regardless of weather.
Serenade of the Seas Serenade of the Seas - Get to port early and if you have an iPhone don't bother with their internet.
Carnival Liberty Carnival Liberty - If you drink alot take the cheers program or if not a drinker, take a insulated tumbler and make use of the free tea and juices for the day....
