Review SummaryThis was our 2nd cruise within 9 months on the Carnival Freedom. We LOVE the ship and the staff is extremely well-trained, personable and friendly. Though this was a "spring break" cruise, the itenerary made it more of an ideal cruise for families and older groups. There are so many activities scheduled that everyone can find something to participate in--or just relax on the several decks set aside for lounging or sun-seeking. Meals on this cruise seemed to be not quite as well-prepared as when we sailed from Rome (one steak and one fish entre seemed dry) ...it could be a different head-chef. The entertainment featured 3 full music-dance reviews--all of which we had seen previously, but we enjoyed them just as much the 2nd time. The comedians (3) were all great and we actually bought a couple of cd's from them. All in all we love the fact that the "fun-ships" of Carnival are no longer 24 hour party-it-up rocking boats, but now offer fun for a wider range of ages and interests. We will continue to look favorably at Carnival in the future for new and exciting iteneraries at reasonable prices.
Ports of Call
Pros: The itenerary and the ability to relax during the number of sea days. The entertainment aboard was way above average and very enjoyable.
Cons: Smoking on deck allowed during sailing spreads 2nd hand smoke everywhere.
