April 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Freedom
I picked the cruise for its itinerary. The weather was perfect and the balcony cabin was worth the $ for this route. The sit down meals were very good, but tge service in the dining room was off on a couple of nights. ?staff in training? The entertainment was very good with lots of variety. Carnival has built shopping areas right near the dock in Cozumel and Roatan, Honduras, so you can walk to the shops. We only did one excursion on Roatan to Gumbalimba Park and the experience was excellent with monkeys sitting on your shoulder.
Driving to Galveston seemed to be the norm, but we flew to Houston and took the Carnival shuttle to the port. Wheelchair assistance was available getting on and off the ship.
