The Carnival Freedom & the staff are wonderful! My only complaint was the unsupervised young children running about the ship late into the night. Anything past 12 midnight is extremely late for children as young as 10 to be left on their own to do whatever while the parents are off doing their own thing. I do not blame the Carnival staff because I personally witnessed them reprimanding children running up and down the stairs, cabin hallways and playing in the elevators; however it is the parents who need to be more considerate of the other passengers and their overall vacation experience. I will be more selective next year when we book our cruise to not pick a date that is a popular school vacation time.

Pros: Not having to do anything but RELAX!!!

Cons: Too many unsupervised children running around the ship late into the night.

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

Food and Dining
The creativity & taste seemed to be lacking this year. Many option in the dining room were repeated during our 8 day cruise.
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
Our son loved Club 02. There were many activites for all ages of children during the day, however the evenings most children were left to fend for themselves while the parents went to the shows, bars or casinos.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
