My 21st Carnival cruise\, so I know what to expect from this budget line. Fairly clean ship\, good service\, average food. Ports of call were fun. I did one Carnival excursion for San Juan and had arranged for two independent tours in St Maarten and St Kitts. In Grand Turk I just walked to the end of the beach to Jack's Shack..

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Average food\, but smaller portions than my B2B on Conquest in October. Don't know why some cruisers rave on Guys Burgers\, they are just a burger and I've had better at many backyard BBQs. I had late MDR dining at a 10 seat table. We averaged 4 people showing up each night.


3 out of 5
Decent R&R band playing in casino.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Guest services platinum line was sometimes longer than regular line!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Normal Conquest class ship. Have to go to deck 5 for access to some areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Stateroom was the usual inside\, kept orderly by steward. This was the 1st time a steward observed my request NOT to make towel animals\, TYVM!

Pros: The ports of call

Cons: Smaller portions in the MDR.

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!
