Great cruise on the Carnival Freedom

Sail Date: December 13, 2014

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

I have been in this vessel before, and the quality of the service, food, entertainment and overall treatment of passengers gets better with each new cruise.  The itinerary is the reason why I selected this cruise since it goes to most of my favorite ports. The only thing that I was not happy about is the cruise director, Wee Jimmy.  Although he is funny as a comedian, his Irish accent is stronger when he is using the loudspeaker to announce information that is important to new cruisers, such as debarkation details and overall information.  In person, he is likeable and friendly but somehow that does not carryover to when he uses the loudspeaker - either his voice is too low and/or speaking rather fast.  Otherwise it was a great cruise.

Destinations and Excursions
Been tto these ports many times already.
Cabin / Stateroom
This vessel because of its age, has very large outside cabins with plenty of space and storage areas.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Even though there were 2 vessels in port, it was easy to move around the downtown area.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
You have to do a tour in this port, since the only thing available in the port area is a Casino (Great) shops and places to eat and drink. To see the Island you have to leave the port.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Great Port but very little time there to really appreciate the beauty of this Island.
Grand Turk Island
All the activities worth doing take place is the port area.


Go to breakfast early when ship is in port and you want to make your tour time, since too many people will be there trying to eat at the same time.
