Carnival Freedom Cruise July 2016

Sail Date: July 23, 2016

Reviewed: 10 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The best part of our cruise was the attentiveness of the staff to our needs on board the ship.  The crew we came in contact with daily knew our names and were always cheerful and willing to help in any way. We also really enjoyed the dining room for our evening meals and the Serenity deck for adults only. The first day getting on the ship and the last day getting off do require a bit of patience as it's a long process, but otherwise it was relaxing and fun! 

Cabin / Stateroom
Although small, we had enough room. We did not spend much time in our room so having an inside room was fine. Being on a lower deck was nice and quiet.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Its a long long process. Requires patience.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Wish there were smoke free casino options. Also would like to see more daytime entertainment for those who do not want to be poolside all day.
Children's Programs Did not use
The comedy and musical shows could use a little improvement. They were fun but not especially quality shows.
Service and Staff
Everyone was very helpful and always seemed upbeat.
Food and Dining
The dining room food was wonderful. We enjoyed dinner there at night and found the food better than on the buffet line.
Galveston, Texas
Didn't spend much time here. Just a place to board the ship.
Cozumel, Mexico
Cozumel is fun! We loved snorkeling here!
George Town, Grand Cayman
We loved it here! The most beautiful water we've ever seen!
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
If you go to the Dunn's River Falls be prepared for lots and lots of people.


Take advantage of the spa and Serenity deck. They are really nice. And try the water slide! What fun!
