We took our first cruise on 1/5/08 on Carnival Freedom. Our family of five had two adjoining rooms and we were amazed at how nice they were. The staff was great, the ship itself was fabulous and so clean! There was always staff cleaning - even at 3 a.m........We couldn't believe how fantastic the food was and our server "Jan" was the absolute best.....we said we would come back just because he was so great. Weather was fantastic, entertainment terrific and I even won at the casino. Thanks for making this such a great experience. We can't wait for our next cruise, just sorry it took us so long to try one.

Pros: Food, Rooms, Staff, Entertainment

Cons: Can't even think of anything!

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

We had three children with ages 17-19 and that was probably the only downside....they were kind of "in between" but managed to have a great time anyway.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
George Town, Grand Cayman
Swam with the Stingrays...kinda scary but a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Cozumel, Mexico
When we left the weather was a bit rainy..but it still was fun and no one can be blamed for the weather.
Don't Miss: Shopping
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Our excursion went a bit over the time so we didn't get to do everything we wanted....we biked down the mountain and the roads were terrible - I think next time I would strongly suggest doing the shopping tour and then going over to Island Village and enjoying the wonderful beach area...we didn't have time and it would have been far less expensive and more fun. The Mountain bike trip was ok but there were too many people and we didn't get to snorkle at the end like they said we would - that was disappointing.
Don't Miss: Beach at Island Village - it's walking distance - don't bother with excursions on this one.
