Ship: Carnival Freedom

The price for this cruise is very reasonable .
Good variety of activities. Definitely a fun ship!
Don't expect to be pampered though.
If you have an eye for style/elegance/color co-ordination - close your eyes and look away on this ship!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining room food and service are excellent. Buffet is often crowded, the staff work hard but are unable to keep the area clean and attractive all the time.

Evening shows were very of a very high standard. Why no Zumba or Latin Dance instruction sessions for passengers?

Service and Staff

Only went to the beach to the left when walking off the ship ($3) Enjoyed walking along the water's edge. Was uncomfortable at being approached so often by people trying to sell items/services.
Don't Miss: Cannot say as we did not actually see Ocho Rios

Pros: The Beatles extravaganza show - Fantastic!! The quality of the food was excellent.

Cons: The very unatractive decor of the ship. Patterns and various colors everywhere. A fee is charged for each exercise class at the gym except for a 15 minute stretch class at 7 a.m.

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!
