8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 05, 2011
Ship: Carnival Freedom
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The ship was good overall but they needed to redo the menu and make the times of the buffet less random and more often. We didn't like that we were an hour late to our shore excursion because the ship failed to inform us of the time difference on the ship and on the islands we visited..very embarrassing!!

The Best, we went snorkeling with the sea turtles :) Saw 3 turtles and sting rays and held one sea urchin. Very good! Chris and Donny were the best!
Don't Miss: Half day snorkel with sea turtles = AWESOME!

Pros: Friendly porters, waterslide.

Cons: Same poor selection of fruit/food, Salt water pools, Constant headache caused by the 12 different colors and patterns in everyroom, availability of chairs on the deck, Short amount of time at ports.

Recommends Carnival Freedom? No.
