My cruise on 5/18/13 thru 5/26/13 on Carnival "Freedom",
Boarding the ship was very easy and organized.
During the course of my vacation their was no place to relax on the Lido deck. Not enough lounge chairs, and the Serenity Deck the same way. The pools and hot tubs were filled with drunk people and some were having sex in the pool and hot tubs. the only clean outside water fun was the waterslide.
The Lido deck restaurant had signs posted no bare feet, and bathing suits. Alot of people were wearing bikini's and not wearing shoes. This wasn't enforced.
Trivia games the same people always won, not enough famiy shows after dinner, and the disco was very loud and to smokey.
The best things were the housekeeping staff on our deck level, and the wait staff in the restaurant for dinner.
