This was my second cruise with Carnival. On my first cruise on the Magic there was so much to do we regularly has to make hard decisions on which activities to do. On the Freedom, there were multiple periods were only paid events were happening. The entertainment was so bad. On the Magic the productions were elaborate but on the Freedom it was similar to a middle school production. The Freedom also lack outdoor events such as the ropes course and the boat seems smaller. The dinner staff was nice but lacked the friendlies and attention I received on the Magic. Overall will cruise with Carnival again but not on the Freedom

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Still gained several pounds because the food is great!!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Cleaned twice a day which is great
Service and Staff
Lack the attention and friendliness of my last cruise
My middle school productions were more elaborate
Onboard Activities
Several periods of the day lacked free activities. Bingo and Casino tournaments were always available but at a cost.
Destinations and Excursions
Jamaica and Grand Cayman had crystal clean beaches. Skip the beach in Cozumel not as clean
Galveston, Texas
Close to home although our port is disgusting compared to others
Montego Bay, Jamaica
Crystal clear water
George Town, Grand Cayman
Crystal clear water
Cozumel, Mexico
Skip the beach. Go to ruins only if you have already been to Cozumel since it takes the whole day and you will not be able to do anything else


Skip the Freedom try another ship
