Review summary

The Carnival Freedom 12 day trip to Greece, Italy and Turkey was wonderful. The things we saw in the ports were amazing. The Carnival staff was wonderful. The food was delicious. The beds were heavenly. The shows we saw were very good. Some of the shows were only at 10:30pm and that is TOO late.
