July 2014 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Southern
Our cruise to the Southern Caribbean was enjoyable. The weather was great, the ports were beautiful, and the ship was nice. We especially enjoyed Curacao with its beautiful, colorful, quaint buildings. We would have liked to have had more time in port for exploring. My one big concern with the ship Freedom was the strong nicotine smell in the hallways and stairs near the casino area. It's a shame passengers had to give up clean air to cater to the smokers who frequented the casino. I think Carnival should take a very strong look at their policy regarding smoking in various areas of the ship. Food was good and plentiful.
