It was OK- not my favorite.

Sail Date: December 18, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

We usually cruise for Christmas- the ship was fun, but the service for drinks was terrible, the casino was stingy, the housekeepers were mean, but we had a good time despite it all!

Pros: The food was excellent, as was the entertainment specifically Danny Black

Cons: Our waitress was cranky and would put dishes down in front of us while we prayed!!

Recommends Carnival Freedom? No.

Ship Quality
It was nearly impossible to find a bathroom!!
Some things were fun- Danny Black the singer basically saved the cruise. He was so fun and entertaining- we followed him every night!!!
Food and Dining
Besides our mean waitress the food was excellent
Cabin / Stateroom
It had enough room for two of us
Service and Staff
They hated their jobs- which makes for poor customer service.
Colon, Panama
Dont get a cab out of port- the train is the way to go- it leaves at 8:30am and it basically takes you the way the cab does without the traffic, tourist traps and it has a bathroom!!
Don't Miss: The train along the canal
Cozumel, Mexico
The three amigos was fun- not very good and port was expensive!!!
Don't Miss: Snorkeling!!! It was a blast!!!
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
The people were amazing- we got a cab out of port and drove around and saw the sights. They all take you to the zipline- but if you don't want to spend 60/psn- just experience the culture- it's an amazing country!!
Don't Miss: The coconut ruM- serve it over ice- you can't go wrong!!!
