A Wonderful Winter Getaway!

Sail Date: February 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Ship was impressive in size and decor; the stewards kept our stateroom clean and neat; wide selection of fresh, delicious meals which were beautifully prepared and arranged; variety of onboard activities; PHENOMENAL entertainment!!!!!!!!!! Shows were the best I've ever seen on a cruise ship; all staff were extremely helpful; our Cruise Director was especially helpful and entertaining

Pros: The onboard entertainment and the ports of call

Cons: Hot tubs were lukewarm

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

Ship Quality
The only complaint I have about layout is "dead ends" aboard the ship--ie, inability to get around restaurants if you take the stairs or elevator and end up at a certain end of the ship; everything else (condition, decor, cleanliness) was excellent
Food and Dining
Nice selection of meals and dining options; great ambiance; specialty options, such as a steak house and specialty coffee house, were available for a nominal fee--but we found it impossible to be bored enough with the included meal options to turn to the specialty options!
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an interior stateroom and found it absolutely comfortable, clean, and in an area that was easily accessible to elevators/stairs; we even had the nice surprise of finding amenities such as toothpaste and hair dryers in our room!
Service and Staff
All staff were willing to help and go "above and beyond"
Top-notch entertainment! The best shows I've ever seen on a cruise ship, with lighting effects, variety of stimuli (eg, movie screens, props with moving parts, colorful scenery) energy, full use of the theater, and phenomenal actors/actresses!
