Review summary

Carnival Freedom has better-than-expected food in the dining room and other food outlets.  The staff is friendly and makes an effort to know your name.  The cabins are clean and comfortable with lots of storage space.

Negatives: There is no way to escape the cigarette smoke from the casino that pours into the atrium.  The layout of the ship is poor which leaves you almost no way to avoid it.  The singers/dancers for entertainment were terrible.  I've seen high school shows that were more professional!  Go see the comics if you can squeeze into the small theater. There is little entertainment on this cruise.  First time I never saw the cruise director.  This is a very basic Cruise that will only please very inexperienced cruisers with low expectations that only want to drink,. Also, our Key West stop was cancelled due to weather.  That left the Bahamas which have the most boring ports in the Caribbean. Not much of a trip except for the company of good friends!

Shower needed repair but was fixed promptly. This cabin is very noisy with high vibration when the ship is underway. Balcony was nice.

Ship tip

Don't have high expectations for this cruise if you have cruised previously. This is a very basic Cruise with no extras.
