Room Type: Suite

Staff was very helpful and did a great job. Ship's ambiance was "loud" . Many levels that you could not walk to other end of ship. Layout was poor. Missed having a full deck that you could walk around the ship after dinner. Spa was loud and poorly laid out.

Pros: That there were areas to help us escape from the kids and noise.

Cons: Pillows, bed, Spa had horrible noise above the massage room. You could hear the help moving deck chairs, extreamly loud. Massage therapist apologized but said that is what they have to put up with all the time! Totally ruined a $300. spa day.

Recommends Carnival Freedom? No.

Spa is ridiculous. No quiet waiting room to go to before your treatments. It was over priced and noisy.
Ship Quality
Layout -Confusing & Loud, decor - tacky. Very clean.
Food and Dining
food was average. The Sun King Restaurant was well worth the extra $$. Our steak was as good if not better that any we have enjoyed at one of the high end steak houses. It was a much needed break from the average meals in the Posh dining room.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a suite, over all it was nice. Our attendant, Julio was exceptional. Beds and pillows were not the best, so we had a few nights with little sleep.
Service and Staff
Staff was wonderful! Spa area they just shrugged when we told them about the horrible distracting noises during our treatments.
