We just got back from our 6 day cruise on Carnivals Freedom out of Port Everglades/Ft Lauderdale. This was our 5th Carnival cruise and we have once again been very pleased with our vacation. The housekeeping was wonderful - what a delight to come back our room and have our beds made for us! Fresh towels and the towels animals made my night to come back to to find out "what was made that night" What FUN! The Posh restuarant did not disappoint - Our waiter Jose was polite and cheerful every single night. It's hard to believe how many hours they work - and with a smile to boot! The comdey clubs were such fun - to laugh and forget about our everyday lives, was a hoot! The excursions were wonderful - the only thing I can say negative at all was the LONG wait in line for the tender at Grand Cayman to get back on the ship. It was really hot - and there was little to no shade to stand in. Maybe they should put up a free water station like they had in Jamaica. Just a thought. We booked all our excursions thru Carnival - before we sailed. The Bamboo Beach was - how can I say....very native - rustic. A lot of tree roots - so you had to be very careful not to trip. The service was nice - our tour guides Tami & Norma were very helpful bringing our drinks and food to us. All in all - this was a wonderful trip - I would do it again in a heart beat and would recommend anyone looking for a relaxful, eventful week to book this cruise.

some activities over lapped others - so you couldn't do everything.

Balcony room - had two connecting rooms - requested they open the barrier between the rooms out on the balcony. Took a few trips down to the customer service counter to finally get it opened.

Stingray city - hell - turtle farm. - Wish they spent a little more time in Hell - (only 15 minutes)

We did not book any excursion at this port. We ended up renting a 6 seater electric car and toured the island on our own.

Dunn's River Falls & bamboo Beach Dunn's River is a must - make sure you bring your water shoes and the venders are very pushy Bamboo Beach was not what we expected - it was very rustic - native feel - No at all the "resort feel" - you would think. There were a lot of tree roots - so you had to be very careful not to trip. The food and unlimited drinks were great.

Pros: Attentive Personnel

Cons: That is had to end.. :0(
