Cruising is the way to go! The relaxation, the food, the fun, the's the best vacation we have had so far. Of course they are always trying to sell you something like the spa treatments (whicb are wonderful) and jewelry and of course the pictures and drinks. It really didn't bother us, we just bought what we wanted and left the rest. It really became kind of convenient to have places to shop on the ship since our port time wasn't that long.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Omg - there was so much food - it was great and the variety was good too! The steak house restaurant was delicious...not really crazy about paying $35 extra to go but the food there was excellent. Would have liked to see some sort of all night buffets.


3 out of 5
The shows were great; we enjoyed several nights there. Would have like to have a more variety of comedy shows or at least a little cleaner entertainment.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is lovely and the staff is constantly cleaing it. Would have loved to have maybe some umbrellas on the serenity deck or some ways of blocking some of the sun!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a balcony room which was very spacious for a stateroom and it was very clean. Our stewart was so nice and he keep our room looking wonderful and clean the whole week!

Pros: The friendly hospitality and of course the pampering

Cons: The debarktion lines and the short times in the various ports

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!
