Verified Review
8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 11, 2012
Ship: Carnival Freedom
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Staff professional yet friendly, rooms were not 'creaky' when at sea, lots of balcony rooms

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Have had better food on other cruiselines, not the 'fanciness' expected, a bit too 'kid' friendly


3 out of 5
Only saw part of one show but liked it

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
I was a bit surprised that so many children were cruising, they seemed to be everywhere including adult retreats - maybe parents are to blame for this lack of respect for adult places and allowing them to 'hang out' there

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Casino staff eager to please and made sure I felt welcome and was invited back

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Layout of ship good, I did not feel like I spent a lot of time in elevators on this ship, only place for open air eating was poolside with lots of kids

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Uncluttered and clean with lots of room for luggage, etc., balcony room was perfect for two

Pros: Relaxed itinerary

Cons: More children than other cruise lines

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!
