June 2015 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Western
I dont want to damper anyones vacation planning because maybe cruising just isn't for me. If you are doubting a cruise then follow your heart and just dont go or at least take a short one. 7 days in hell was too long for me. If you want a vacation that consists of moping around with not much to do, "lame quizzes" and "Name that 80's tune or movie theme", nap times and just lounging around then this vacation is for you! The food is not that great if you are from southwest Louisiana (or anywhere in Louisiana for that matter)...if you are told you are getting an onboard credit you better confirm with Carnival BEFORE you get on the boat because i DIDNT get mine, after standing in line half the time i was on my vacation with customer service. Dont wear the patches for seasickness unless you want diarrhea the whole time and if the weather strikes unexpectedly, dont be surprised if your excursion gets cancelled. First and last cruise for me. It was just awful! i wouldnt go on another cruise if it was free. Take my advice, just go to Disney!
PS. the whole 24 hour buffett did not exist on the Freedom. we could pass by at 3 or 4 in the afternoon and there was no food out. very disappointing and we spent a lot of money for nothing.
