Room Type: Inside

The ship is one of Carnival's newer ships and was beautiful! It was very modern in comparsion to some of their older ships. The food was excellent, which hasn't been the case in previous Carnival cruises I've been on. The entire staff was wonderful, always smiling and seemed genuinely happy and helpful. LOTS of activites for all ages while on the ship.

Pros: The Carinval Freedom was beautiful!

Cons: The Orbitz excursion was not through Carinval Cruiselines and therefore not sanctioned by Carnival. Because of the location, our group opted not to attend.

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

Ship Quality
Clean, clean, clean!!! Easy to navigate and the decor was beautiful!
Food and Dining
The food was great and seemed to be upgraded from previous Carnival cruises I've been on. We had an open-time dining which worked out very well. One evening we opted to eat in the Sun King Steakhouse onboard and it was by far the best meal I've ever had for only $30 per person! It was a very nice addition to Carnival's options!
Cabin / Stateroom
Very comfortable and very clean!
Service and Staff
Always smiling and helpful.
Lots to choose from!
Key West, Florida
We enjoyed just walkng around Key West.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
I wouldn't waste my time here again. It was a scary location with armed officers patroling the streets. If you get off the ship, only go on a Carnival sanctioned excursion! I would not recommend walking around the town.
George Town, Grand Cayman
If you've been to other islands, this isn't much different. Lots of stores basically selling the same things.
