Great boat experience, disappointed all cruise ports canceled us by lpicchi26417886

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Freedom

I was happy with the ship but very disappointed that all of our original ports were canceled. Also they kept blaming it on to many employees with covid. This was not our fault as patrons

Wonderful return to cruising by travelingcyn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Freedom

We had a great time despite the warnings from the Covid outbreak the week before our cruise. Only a handful of passengers seemed to want to defy the mask requirements but most realized it’s just a part of how we can get back to normal. Staff was great, cruise director Stephan was wonderful, and we really enjoyed the experience of celebrating New Year on the Lido deck!

Cruise was wonderful as always! Been on 21-22 cruises, so at Platinum Status, but that really meant absolutely nothing. Nothing different than a first time cruiser. Very disappointing. by jay65636479

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Freedom

Another very nice trip! There are some rude people trying to save deck chairs but not even use them either for hours at a time or all day. Watched a woman save chairs right along the pool but go up to the top and lay out when people were looking for chairs to use. They walked by and saw the woman left a towel on them, so kept walking. Happens way too often!

Winter vacation by chall0109

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Freedom

The only problem we had was they lost the liquor we bought at the rum factory we visited. They replaced it with some from the ship but it was not the same as what we bought. They should not impound the liquor

Ship: Carnival Freedom

From the very first day cruise was full of energy, excitement, and friendly guests. Lots of good conversations, food, and entertainment. Met a ton of new friends.

It was nice that the ships were at 50% capacity. For all the changes that were made due to COVID, it really was still a good time. by

We were celebrating our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better experience! All the ports were beautiful. We're taking another trip in July! On a bigger ship!

Fun Cruise with Family by JenCon16

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Carnival Freedom

As always, Carnival did a great job of making us feel welcome. We were disappointed in the lack of kid friendly activities with the Kids Club being closed and them being unable to get off the ship (other than the private island). The food, drinks, and staff were all fabulous no matter where you go.

Glad to be back Cruisin'! by cnewman1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Freedom

This was the first cruise this ship and crew had been on since the pandemic hit. The crew was as excited as we were to start cruising again. The welcome on board was heartwarming. The first night at dinner had a few glitches with the service, but they were all fixed by the next dinner. The Alchemy Bar was an exceptional experience. I asked for a unique drink to be made, and they made it. It became my favorite drink. Because the cruise was only half filled, there was no waiting at any time. It was a very smooth and wonderful experience - a great way to begin cruising again!

Excellent crew... disappointing food. by LLcdPH

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Freedom / Destination: Caribbean - Western

It was a great week to get away and we overall enjoyed the cruise. Disappointed we weren't able to get to Belize but they made a short stop in Costa Maya Mexico on the return trip to help make up for that lost stop. Overall, I don't think we'll be sailing Carnival again due to the poor evening meal choices and food in general. If you plan on sailing Carnival, thoroughly research the ship before making your reservations.

The staff on the Carnival Freedom are Great by jeaqual

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Freedom / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Great cruise, friendly, helpful staff except for Bingo caller (her majesty). There is a bar b que restaurant on the 10th floor (walk up the stairs from level 9). The food is fabulous and free. Very few people know where the Bar B que restaurant is , so you can have your pick of the chicken, beef or sausage and tables.

We love Carnival! by snhayner

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Freedom / Destination: Caribbean - Western

TJ was awesome. Loved him, he is very funny. Pande in the Chic Restaurant was by far the best person. We requested him every night. Our room steward Andri was super nice! He remembered our names, and our room was always so clean! Everyone was super nice. The comedy shows were our favorite. The love & marriage show was also super fun to watch. Overall, we had a really great time and will definitely come back!

Disappointed by tishfj

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Freedom / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Went on the tour mainly to relax after hectic holiday season. Very comfortable, convenient and relaxing. Nice not to have to fly somewhere with flights overbooked and canceled. Convenient drive. Will do it again but will probably choose a different ship and check to see if more entertainment is offered.

30th Anniversary Sail-ebration! by grmayo69

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Freedom / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Carnival Freedom was our very first cruise. We did not know what to expect, but we were VERY pleasantly surprised. We had such an enjoyable time that we did not want to come home, and we are currently planning our next cruise. For anyone hesitant about cruising, don't be...just book one!
