February 2016 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Freedom
Parking in the cruise line parking lot was very easy and reasonably priced ($10 per day). The shuttle buses bringing you to the ship were prevalent and the drivers were very helpful. Getting on and off the ship was very smooth. The buffet was all ready when we boarded. Staff was very pleasant but they were always hurried so no time to chat with them. The room and the meals were OK. Variety of entertainment was so-so. Housekeeping in the casino was not very good.
When leaving the ship on Cozumel you are funneled through duty-free shops and then venders so it's like running the gauntlet, very unpleasant. Even in town the venders jump on you everywhere. I gave up trying to buy a ring because the pressure was unbearable.
So no major complaints but nothing inspiring jumps out at me either.
