This was my first cruise and I didn't know what to expect. I will tell you that I was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the entire trip was. Every staff member was so friendly and helpful. They really work hard to make sure the ship is in tip top shape and everything runs like a well oiled machine.  I'm wondering when anyone sleeps! Our porter and wait staff were marvelous too! The excursions were well organized and awesome as well. I had an incredible time on the Carnival Freedom and will definitely sail again! My daughter and I will have such wonderful memories of her senior cruise!

Cabin / Stateroom

The room was sufficient for what we needed. We weren't in there much. The beds were comfortable and the rocking of the ship made for some great sleeping!

Go Zip lining...you will love it! Mika and Darvin were the best guides! They were experienced and we felt safe the entire time. What an adventure this was for us! It was my favorite of the entire trip.

Do the swim, push and pull with the dolphins...you will be glad you did. This was my daughter's favorite. Just be prepared to pay for the pictures if you want them...bring cash.
