Carnival Freedom

May 2014 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Western

Cruise started off badly and did not improve much

We are Platinum status cruisers.  We got on board about 11:00 AM, normally, our luggage arrives about 1/2 to 1 hour after we get into our room.  On this cruise the luggage arrived after 8:00 PM.  It was soaked, clothes and everything.  What we found out was that Carnival left almost everyones luggage on the dock during a big down pour.  Therefore, the ship was 3 hours late in leaving the port.  We had to hang our clothes all over the room to try and dry them.  Some clothes had to be washed.  Carnival agreed to wash them and they did, but lost two shirts.  The worst part was that Carnival never even sent out a letter of apology to anyone.

 

Another negative experience was the entertainment in the main theater. When they started going to the new 2.0 entertainmnt package they got rid of the orchestra, dancers, etc, and installed a big LED screen and sound track.  They still have some dancers, but they are not very good. The ship had one (1) show during the seven days.  The other things they had in the theatre was a juggler, a magician, a hypnotist, things like that. The old way was a great show with orchestra, dancing and singing almost every night.  And, we enjoyed this.

 

Dining and entertainment are the most important part of a cruise to us and since they have done away with the entertainment we will start back cruising on Royal Carribean, etc.

 

We are sorry we got Platinum status with Carnival and are having to start over.. Good Bye Carnival!

Carnival Breeze

May 2013 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Southern

This cruise experience was not what I expected...

My wife and I are Platinum members with Carnival and have cruised on all the different classes of Carnival ships. However, the Carnival/Breeze did not impress us as much as it's sister ship, the Dream. It looks as if a different design team was in charge and were told to cut costs, as much as possible. In our opinion, the decor was not nearly as nice, not as much marble, etc. - looked cheap. We could not believe the quality of the food that was served - prime rib was too tough to chew. Guests all around us were requesting a different entre. For example, fried chicken, and that, too, was not up to Carnivals past standards. Entertainment in the Oviation Theatre was very high tech, not nearly as nice as previous enterainment. No band, extremely bright LED screens and recorded music was too loud, no Las Vegas style shows. We were not impressed with the changes Carnival has made. I truly hope, other Carnival ships will keep their band and not change to the high tech screen, etc. We have always looked forward to the great food and entertainment. Elevators were too small,, also, spent more time waiting for elevators to stop on requested floors. Not Good!! WHAT A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT, AND MONEY NOT WELL SPENT.. We will not cruise or recommend cruising on the Carnival/Breeze or any other Carnival Ship that has this new high tech entertainment. Please bring back the live band and live performers, as in the past.
