Noisiest place on earth on the Dec.15th sailing. Perhaps the time of year had a lot to do with it but this was the loudest cruise I've been on thus far. Had to escape to my cabin to even read a book. Aft pool (or somewhere) should be an adults only area. Children in the hot tubs with parents and kids both ignoring the 18+ signs - and staff not willing to enforce their own rules. Families would save (by throwing towels on) 10 chairs at 9 with no one arriving to use them until 12 or so. (These were adults, so can't complain about the kids on this one.) Soft music and pleasant area until about noon and except for the Reggae band on the Lido deck was about as raucous.

Pros: Aft pool before 11 am

Cons: Aft pool after 11 am

Recommends Carnival Freedom? No.
