Carnival Is really Going Downhill!
Carnival Freedom Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: February 25, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Review SummaryThe food at the evening meals was very mediocre. It felt like they added more people to an already crowded ship. We have cruised several times with Carnival since 1995. We used to love them but should have quit after the last cruise a couple of years ago. We thought maybe it was just one bad time, we were wrong. We met several others that said the same on this trip. The evening meals were not what they used to be, the help was not what it used to be, the overall dining experience was terrible. This used to be my wife's favorite part.
The decks have always been busy but this time there were times that there were no chairs available anywhere on the decks. You might think I am kidding but try for yourself. I am all about getting a deal but will not cruise with Carnival again as it is no deal. Pay a little more, you will thank yourself in the end.

Pros: We loved St Thomas and Tortola
Cons: The whole picture with Carnival has gone downhill. The crowded decks when at sea was probably the worst.
