The boat's decor is very nice; clean boat mostly. If you are on a budget\, Carnival is the best liner to go with\, but remember- you get what you pay for! Carnival is the perfect budget cruise. If you can spend a few more $$$\, then go with a more upscale liner like Celebrity or Royal Caribbean- theyre both worth it.

Food and Dining

Did not like the shows in the theater\, the entertainment was pretty boring\, not really well planned or entertaining\, the night club was not great either. DJ played horrible music that no one would dance to- for example\, on the 4th night\, it was Latin music theme\, and the dance floor was PACKED with people dancing. After that hour of latin music\, the DJ switched the music (terrible mistake) and everyone fleed from the dance floor. He saw that NO ONE was dancing\, but insisted on playing that crappy bang music instead. Did not cater at all to the public's preference.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The staff in the dining room\, and the staff in housekeeping were very friendly. Bunch of hard working people. There were some employees that were in charge of cleaning public areas on the boat\, example: Lido deck or buffet area- that would be on their cell phones on private calls. Not good.

Did not like the fact that the public restrooms inside the boat- not in your staterooms- did not have toilet seat covers. Also\, the Lido deck area was not always well kept during the day (due to so many people roasting under the sun all day)\, and the sun chairs were pretty dirty- except for the 21 and over only area. We did not like the fact that smoking is allowed at all-should only be allowed in the casino- but no where else.

Cabin / Stateroom

Felt the 3 person stateroom was quite snug- and we are not big overweight people\, but are a rather fit group!! Lol.

Pros: Boat's decor\, excellent service from employees

Cons: Not enough time at the ports.

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!
