Room Type: Inside

We've been on 15 Carnival ships in 14 years, from Tropicale to Destiny. The Freedom was so spacious, not crowded, clean, clean, clean, friendly, and the excursions have improved so much! The entertainment was outstanding this trip - TICKET TO RIDE ROCKS! And the Music Connection rock band is outstanding, we've seen them on other ships, and they are great. The Helmet Dive in Cayman and the Jamaican Bobsled ride in Ocho Rios are the best we've ever done. We like it so much we may do the same one next year.

Pros: organization, space, excursions, vip treatment

Cons: nothing

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

George Town, Grand Cayman
We have been to George Town 8 times, and got to where we stayed on the ship, however, this time we did the Sea Trek Helmet Dive, and it is the greatest experience for the money! We are anxious to do it again. Of course first timers should see Hell and the Turtle farm and Tortuga Rum Factory for sure.
Don't Miss: Sea Trek Helmet Dive
Key West, Florida
The Conch Train and Old Town Trolley are too high priced. We chose to walk around. I recommend visiting the Kino Sandal Factory - great hand made sandals !
Don't Miss: A Cheeseburger in Paradise!
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Jamaican Bobsled or Zip Line is out of this world. Brand new and worth the ride. You could take a taxi there and just ride the chair lift up the mountain and back for a great relaxing sightseeing experience, but the Bobsled ride is great.
Don't Miss: Mystic Mountain and Bobsled ride.
