Great cruise

Sail Date: February 01, 2010

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We had heard many things about Carnival Cruises and most were not flattering. However, the Freedom dispelled all of those negatives. The food, entertainment, service and ship maintanance were incredible. We weren't bugged to order drinks. We had heard Carnival ships were flashy like Vegas, but this one is simply beautiful.

Pros: Food, entertainment, service

Cons: Smokey casino, only 1 deck party, constant vibration

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

Excellent variety and quality. Comedians were very entertaining.
Service and Staff
Maybe the best and funniest cruise director we have ever had. Everyone was friendly and willing to help.
Ship Quality
This ship had a very nice layout. Would have been nice to have a promenade deck all the way around the ship for walking and running. Common areas were effective and efficient
Food and Dining
We dined late in the Posh dining room in the aft. Unfortunately, the vibration from the props was quite annoying. It was almost like one of those vibrating beds. The water glasses had ripples on them. On the other hand, food and service were incredible.

Buffets were excellent and offered good variety. I fell in love with the Mongolian BBQ and ate there 4-5 times for lunch.
Cabin / Stateroom
Decent size and comfortable. Adequate storage room. Only 1 electrical outlet in the entire room was a bit inconvenient.
