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

Onboard Activities

Several periods of the day lacked free activities. Bingo and Casino tournaments were always available but at a cost.

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
