Review summary

Most of the voyage was good --but having to bypass Key West due to weather was a bummer.  The smoke coming from the casino kept us off deck 5 where all the shops were.  Have been on other ships with a casino--never noticed the smoke--but this was bad.  Entertainment was average--everyone complained of lazers bothering their eyes.  Best entertainment was the waiters who kept us entertained and they were good dancers.  The Matra-d was fantastic--went by Chubby--had his waiters working hard to keep everyone in good spirits.  Room cleaners were good and very cheerful.  I would recommend Carnival to anyone--went on the Magic a couple of years ago--but won't use the freedom again due to the smoke and the crowded feeling everywhere.

Cabin was kept clean and the workers were friendly and worked hard.

Ship tip

If you are a non smoker I would not recommend the Freedom due to the Casino smoke. It was all out in the halls and could be smelled on other floors.
