Fun Trip on Carnival Freedom

Sail Date: May 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

As first time cruisers we had a wonderful time. We had a fun time at our excursions (1 through the cruise line, 2 others through external source). We stopped in Key West, Grand Cayman and Ocho Rios (Jamaica). Staff was very polite and helpful. Cruise Host (Ryan) really gave it his all (and boy, was he doing his best being patient w/ some of the cruisers). Cocktails are regular price like you'd pay in a restaurant (around $8). Our cabin room was bigger than we anticipated (which was great). Evening activites were plentiful. All in all, we hope to go on another Carnival cruise in the next 2 years.

Pros: great host and other staff, ports of call, gym, cabins

Cons: Wish dining food was a bit better, but no biggy

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

It's no Vegas or LA, but still the dancers, singers, and comedians did their we thought.
Ship Quality
Kooky decor, guess it adds a fun-factor (dining room is lovely). Statue of liberty heads everywhere a light is placed. General layout of the boat - good. Very clean. Loved Serenity deck.
Food and Dining
Food nowhere near comparible to a 4 or 5 star restaurant, but keep in mind you're on a BOAT. (but still you secretly wish it was above 'mediocre')
Service and Staff
Friendly staff. We had no issues at all.
Cabin / Stateroom
We loved out stateroom (#2365 if I remember the number correctly)
