Freedom of the Seas

June 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Amazing Ship, Amazing Islands

The ship was amazing! We had one of the smallest staterooms and there was still plenty of room, more than all of the other cruise lines I've been on (which is 3). The food was great, my only complaint is that the buffet closes at 9 pm, which I thought was to early. If I wanted a healthy late snack it was hard to find, there are other options like pizza and sandwiches. There are so many fun activities to do, and fun things going on all the time. I love the main pool area, it has a little splash area you can sit in and stay cool in the sun while you watch the big screen. The ports we went to were amazing, unfortunately the swells were too big so we didn't see Coco Cay. St Thomas was beautiful. We snorkeled at Lindquist Beach, which was secluded and beautiful. We snorkeled on the reefs there and saw sea turtles, sting rays, sand dollars and beautiful fish. They do not have snorkel gear there so you have to bring it. The can ride p/p was $10 each way. In st Maarten we went b to Orient Beach, the French side. It was one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to. The cab ride was cheap, the more people you have the cheaper the price. We had 4 people and it was $32 roundtrip for both of us. It is a nude beach, which I didn't prefer, but if you stay to the left of the rocks (if you're looking at the ocean) there aren't any nude people. This cruise left me wanting to find a crawl space I could sneak in to stay on another week.

Carnival Fantasy

January 2014 - Carnival Fantasy to Caribbean - Bahamas

Not bad, but not great

Rooms were tiny, the food was ok. A lot of the activities took place during second seating dinner time, so we missed quite a few things we wanted to go to. I loved that the buffet was open late, sometimes you need a late night snack but don't want pizza. I love you can get ice cream anytime you want! The shows were pretty good, but I missed quite a few things during dinner. The servers were great and our run attendant was fantastic. The ports were fun. Don't forget about the amazing candy store on Nassau. I really enjoyed the beach at our Freeport stop.

ace11176's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Atlantis is expensive, but if you really want to see it you should pay to do it. they've closed off the entrances so it makes it tough to get in without paying. there's a candy store that's not too far away from the port, but you most likely still need a taxi.
Carnival Fantasy Carnival Fantasy - No espn in room, you have to watch in the bar or at the buffet. They serve almost the exact same stuff at the buffet as they do at the restaurant.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Orient Beach, taxi ride was cheap, the more you have the cheaper it is. This beach was absolutely beautiful! Stay on the left side of the rocks, if you're facing the ocean, to avoid the nude side.
Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - If you want to lay out on the main pool deck, you seriously have to get there at 8 am. The best time to actually swim is about 5 pm when everyone is getting ready for early seating dinner.
