Sail Date: September 17, 2016
Ship: Carnival Freedom
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8315
Traveled As: Couple

Staff was very friendly. Cruise director is very funny

and awesome at his job. The comedy entertainment

was great. I did not like how the cruise line pushes

alcohol. So many people on the ship obviously drunk

and should have been cut off. 


Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was what you would expect for the price of the cruise. Dinning room food was not exciting.

Onboard Activities

Lots to choose from

Cruise director is awesome and the comedians were great. The Trivia games are lots of fun

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Crew members are vey friendly Service in the dinning room could use some improvement. I also did not like how they push drinks. When you tell them no I don't want a drink stop coming to the table 2 to 3 times to push shots or other alcohol.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship decor is on the dark side. Public restrooms are hard to spot

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin could use a color update. You will hear noise from the bar above this room. We had a great cabin steward

Ship Tip

The pizza and Guy's Burgers are the best food on the ship.

We rented a car in Houston and drove to the port. Port parking was easy and it cost less for the 4 of us for parking and rental car than paying for shuttle service from Carnaval

We had a great time on the beach at Mahogany Bay. Safe and close to the ship

Be sure to bring bug spray. Please be safe and use Skin so Soft from Avon. We were at the Mayan Ruins and did not get one mosquito bite. People around us were getting bit and we shared our Skin so Soft

We went on a boat to snorkel the staff was awesome and the water and fish are amazing. This excursion is called Three Reef Snorkel. Bring cash with you ($30) for a CD with you and the fish. I attached some photos.
