We were a bit disappointed with our cruise. Always were told that it is reasonably priced with all that is available to you. To date, the most expensive vacation we've ever taken. We are big travelers and have been many places, mainly resorts and spas and that is what we will stick with. We may have just picked a bad time to go on our first cruise "Spring Break"! It is nice that you get to see several different places all in one vacation, that is the only plus/positive. Not sure will cruise again. If we do, will probably be another cruise line.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Not enough variety of food choices. It seemed like we were in a school cafeteria.

We stayed in an ocean suite, which was very nice. I couldn't imagine what this trip would have been like if we didn't stay in a suite. At least we had a nice room.

What a beautiful Island. Wanting to go back and stay at a resort/spa
Don't Miss: The Sky Explorer up to Mystic Mountain/Dunns river falls

Walking up and down Duval street was great!
Don't Miss: The one hour tour on the conch bus/very informative and see a lot

Pros: The ports of call and excursions

Cons: The hidden costs that you are unaware of on the cruise

Recommends Carnival Freedom? No.
