This was out first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. The ship is huge and took us a few days to learn our was around. Overall we had a good time and will probably cruise again in the future.

Pros: Food

Cons: bed was uncomfortable

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

Ship Quality
Our stateroom was kept very clean by the cleaning staff. A few of the public area bathrooms could have been a little cleaner.
Food and Dining
The food quality was good in the buffets. The quality in the post restaurant was much better. Cristos was one of our waiters and did a very good job. We choose the early dining time and I didn't try to change it. A couple of evenings we napped late and missed out allotted time and ate the buffet. We purchased the bottomless bubbles plan. My husband drinks alot of soda. When we went to the bar to get a soda they would just fill a glass and would not give us the rest of the can. He can immediately drink that and needs another one. I saw them give the can to some people but not to us even when we asked for it we were told no.
Cabin / Stateroom
The bed was hard and uncomfortable. Otherwise the room was fine. The decor could stand to be updated. Rudy kept our room very clean.
Service and Staff
The staff was very friendly and explained anything we asked.
We generally go to bed fairly early and excursions started early. It would have been nice if some of the adult shows and haloween party would have started around 9:30 or 10 instead of 11 to 11:45.
