A relaxing cruise

Sail Date: December 14, 2008

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This cruise was very relaxing!!! All of the ports of call had great beaches to enjoy. The ship was very big with plenty of activity. The only complaint was the long lines for the buffet style restaurant on Lido Deck.

Pros: The big screen TV on the ship and the plethora of space on the ship

Cons: The long lines when eating at the buffet style restaurant

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

George Town, Grand Cayman
Our shore excursion to Sting Ray City was canceled, but we walked to the 7 mile beach. It was beautiful! It was a 45-60 minute walk from the ship, but taxis could be taken there for $5/person. There were resorts along most of it that were fun to look at and the public beaches were nice too, although a little crowded.
Don't Miss: 7 mile beach
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
The island was beautiful!!! Dunn River Falls was great. Walk the falls if you can. Wear sturdy shoes. If you can't walk the falls due to health reasons, there is a great path that goes alongside it. Dolphin Cove was great. It was more than just a beach and dolphins. They had some shops and a jungle walk with spiders, iguanas and birds.
Don't Miss: Dunn River Falls

There was a lot of shopping to do. The island is a lot bigger than one might think. A walk to the closest beach took 45 minutes to an hour. The "Southernmost point" was the only thing really unique to this port.
Don't Miss: the shopping
