We had a Great Cruise!

Sail Date: January 01, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship is beautiful! We had seven cabins together and our cabin stewards took VERY good care of us. We had a large range of ages, something for everyone.

Pros: Very Clean, New Ship, Cabin Stewards, Matre de

Cons: Gaudy decor, too big, felt like a number

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

Food and Dining
Our dinig room was up an escalator and our servers were gone a long time getting food, dinner took the whole two hours to eat, the variety of food was more limited and not as good as in past cruises.
Ship Quality
I really disliked the decor, the Statue of Liberty lights were really tacky. The ship was easy to navigate, clean and beautiful to look at.
Cabin / Stateroom
We enjoyed our rooms. Someone kept smoking nearby which made my asthma acat up. The only problem with the room was the twin beds were slid together for a full and kept sliding apart in the night.
Service and Staff
We had good service from the pursers desk, the cabin stewards and the matre de especially. Felt like ratio of crew to guests was not as high as other trips, particulary at meals.
We enjoyed most of the shows. We didn't care for the one comedian who was quite rank for a family show. I didn't think the rude comments to be that funny.
Children's Programs
we didn't spend a lot of time there, but enjoyed what experiences we had there. The staff was great.
