This was our first cruise and it was a fantastic experience. The staff provided excellent service and the food was great. We had a stateroom with a balcony....the best way to enjoy a cruise.

Loved Grand Cayman. It is a beautiful island. Our only complaint is that we did not have enough time at this port of call. We did the Atlantis submarine excursion and it was great.

We did the conch train excursion. It was an interesting tour, but I think next time we will take the trolley so that we can visit some sites on the tour and catch the next trolley.

We were not very impressed with this stop. As others have noted the locals are very pushy and harassing. It's a shame because this could be such a lovely port of call. We did the Dunns River Falls excursion and the falls are gorgeous, but be careful - every one here is out for your money too. We also had a lunch buffet at "The Ruins". It is a lovely setting, but the food wasn't very good. Good thing it included all the beer you wanted.

Pros: The food, the music in the Habana bar, and the overall atmosphere of the ship.

Cons: The casino and all the picture taking,

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!
