8 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 20, 2010
Ship: Carnival Freedom
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Dining rooms were clean and attractive and servers were good and attentive. The food was occasionally very good if it only required cooking. If it required seasoning or a recipe it was typically poor. Food was typically warm at best, more often than not overcooked, and not pleasing to the palate. Even their premier steakhouse was average at best.

I feel the new ships are to large to give cruise quality service.

shopping is your best bet here. The island is poor and there really is not a lot to see.
Don't Miss: shopping

Don't Miss: The Panama Canal

This is the poor side of down and not the safest in the world. I personally would not just walk around this town without a crowd.
Don't Miss: Take one of the activity outdoors tours suitable to your abilities.

Pros: newer ship and modern equipment

Cons: poor food quality

Recommends Carnival Freedom? No.
