Sail Date: August 15, 2015
Ship: Carnival Freedom
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 7376
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The cruise was not unpleasant except for the following, First the debarkation at the ports of call is a horrendous experience at the dock side and tendering,  It took 2 hours in line to get off the ship in Jamaica with a huge argument breaking out among passengers on deck 3 stairs whiting to exit, when tendering at George Town we were so late getting back from our excursion the ship was already leaving port, only one line was available with one machine in use to document leaving the ship.  All or our excursions were through Carnival. When we had early excursions the buffet still opened late not allowing time to eat a morning meal ( as a diabetic I cannot miss meals). the room smelled of smoke even though it is a non smoking ship.

the room was clean and comfortable, but I am highly allergic to smoke. The room smelled of smoke, when I spoke to the cabin attendant he said it probably was coming from the casino through the air vents, Maybe but I know the man was smoking on the balcony next to our room which made it impossible to use our balcony.

Galveston, Texas Did not visit port

easy port to navigate
