The Carnival Freedom to Key West\, Grand Cayman\, Ochio Rios was a fun Cruise. The Ships Crew\, Staff\, and Entertainers were all great. The Cruise Director was very entertaining and personable. The ports were all terrific except for Ochio Rios (the area was beautiful just very pushy vendors EVERYWHERE). The adult area Serenity is nice but very small for 2800+ guest.
My only complaints are about the ships dcor and how they queue the passengers for everything. The ship is less than 10 years old but the dcor looks like its out of a Dynasty set. The Cabins are very spacious but the light pink trip took away from the room. Finally all the food was good\, but the queuing systems for the buffet and to leave and enter the ship where horrible.

Pros: Staff and Entertainment

Cons: Dated Decor

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!

The entertainment was Great! We had a 10 piece big band that played all the shows\, Las Vegas quality shows\, two very funny comedians\, and a Cruise Director that was very attentive.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Cleanliness and comfort where are all very good. Again the dcor (colors) took away from the room.
Food and Dining
Steak House Great\, Dinning Room Good\, Casual dinning not so good.
Ship Quality
