This is our second Carnival cruise and this time my wife and I took our family and friends with us to the Caribbean. We loved the ship, the bartenders at the lido deck are number 1. if you take the cruise make sure you go the the back of the ship on the Lido deck and order the "ROSS", our son turned them on to a Shangai Ice Tea and the bartenders told him they would name it after him. Just don't drink to many or you will not remember what you did. Ken the Maitre d by far is the best maitre d we have ever had on any cruise we have been on. He sings to you and gets to know your name, where you sit and who your waiter is. Our room stewards were very attentive and were there everytime we needed them. The biggest issue we had is the ship had 2,400 passengers and 974 of them were under 18. Carnival would not do anything to control this situation, they would not even help remove these kids from the adult only area of the ship. At the pursers desk they said there were too many passengers and they would upset them if they removed their children from the adult areas. We loved the cruise and all I can say is if you take this ship and you do not have young kids do not take it over Thanksgiving Week.

Pros: The staff, food and all the alcohol

Cons: 974 screaming kids

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!
