Sail Date: December 01, 2013
Ship: Carnival Freedom
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

Our cabin was quite comfortable even though it was an inside economy one and our steward Widi couldn't do enough for us.

Sadly\, the food was so poor- particularly the meat quality. that we finally resorted to the excellent little fih n chips stand and the deli for grilled sandwiches for the last several days of the trip. Nothing else was edible or appetizing.

Food and Dining

Worst by far of any ship we have been on ( we have been on 7 others- this is likely our first and last on Carnival.). meat was tough - even our fllet was filled with gristle- and the buffet was pathetic at all meals. I heard the premium steakhouse was great- but at 435 pp it should have been . The fish n chips and deli were edible but nothing else that we could find.

Great Latin and rock bands- scheduling seemed haphazard and many venues had few customers Mptown show was great and well attended and comedy club was one of the few venues with a full house on this large ship.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Our steward and one bar server were wonderful- most bar and casino staff were unfriendly- in an 8 days cruise only the two I mentioned ever called us by name and we became accustomed to curt dialogue from the others who seemed unhappy in general.

Ship Quality
