Carnival Freedom - Western Caribbean Cruise

Sail Date: July 23, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Food was by far the star of the trip - Exquisite, exceeded expectations and the ship itself is truly a work of art.  The staff from top to bottom are top notch, friendly and knowledgeable with only a very few exceptions that not worth mentioning.  The people are dedicated and committed to making your vacation memorable.  Truly outstanding service overall.


Communications on the ship left some to be desired - the PA system is not very good, very difficult to hear.  It took us a few days to get used to the rhythm of how things work and we missed the Captain's Dinner as a result.  A small investment upfront in helping first timers figure it out quickly would be well worth the effort.


Overall value for money for sure.

The ship uses Reverse Osmosis to generate drinking water - good quality for sure and safe for sure. however, if you're a bit queezy and sensitive to water quality you might want to bring your own. I will definitely do that next time.
