The food was far inferior to past cruise experiences, and the service as well.

Pros: Nice new friends

Cons: Poor service, and poor quality of food.

Recommends Carnival Freedom? No.

Food and Dining
Sides of the tables in the Lido dining room were not wiped clean. Worst help ever. Real attitude problem. Fruit was not ripe. Greasy potatoes for breakfast...Cold waffles and french toast with very little egg batter on it.
Service and Staff
Real attitude on the Lido deck. Nicer in the dining room, but slow, slow, slow. Got luke warm food most of the time.
Karaoke sound should be improved. Half of the duo singing at the pool was flat. The piano player in the Piano Bar couldn't sing at all. EEEEK! Couldn't stay to listen to either.
Much better entertainment on the previous cruises.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
After bringing the terrible urine smell in the bathroom to our cabin steward's attention it was kept clean.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
Biggest waste was the bus tour to Portobello. Dirty, dirty, dirty. Never go there again.
Cozumel, Mexico
Been there before. Love the ruins sites.
Colon, Panama
Exciting to see the locks actually working and a huge freighter coming through.
