Relaxing 7 night cruise by gforce1010

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very convenient cruise out of Galveston since we live 1.5 hrs away. Embarkation was a breeze but disembarkation took longer than usual. The ports were good. Nassau had great snorkeling and snuba, good visibility. We visited Atlantis resort and the aquarium was fantastic. If you have kids, do the water slides. Not much to do in Freeport, we hang out in some beach resort for the day. Got rained for a few minutes here and there whcij pronably caused the water to be a little choppy. Key West is a 4x2 mile island so we took the hop on hop off tram to see the whole islnad. Don’t miss Kermit’s key lime pie, which is bu far the best I’ve had. Cruise director was awesome. She kept you occupied throughout the trip. Lots of activities on board ship and lots of food choices including Guy Fieri’s burger joint, a deli, bbq place, mongolian wok, sushi ($) and steakhouse ($$$). The sushi was definitely worth it. The service on lido deck dining areas was not the best so prepare to het your own drinks and refill🤨Otherwise a fun-filled week

Caribbean Trip by cmoore2017

The ship was nice and we loved the staff. Emma was a great cruise director. I was not very happy with the ports. We I go on a cruise I want to see clear waters. This was not the case here. Again I really liked the ship, but didn't like the ports.

Excellent time on and off board. by Dork1369

My husband and I had a really awesome time. If you don't participate and enjoy all the activities on board you might as well stay at home. The Fun Squad did a great job keeping people entertained.

Never Carnival again. by pchauvin

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I’m not sure why you ask these questions, you do not respond to negativity comments. I sent a survey from a cruise last month ad haven’t heard from anyone. If I haven’t already had this cruise booked I wouldn’t have gone. I’m done with carnival. I’m sure I won’t hear from anyone from carnival this time either.

We left Galveston late because of flooding ,but we had a carnival representative call, give direction and stayed on the line while directing us to the port to park and had a shuttle waiting to take us to the ship.We also had a blast with Emma the ships director ,I don't know where she gets all of her energy.Ni,our steward and her staff were very accommodating.We definitely sail again with carnival.

Awesome Caribbean cruise. by wotgcb555

best cruise we have been on due mainly to Emma Nixon, cruise director. She brought so much energy and fun. She just made you want to have fun and let go in a good way. The crew was so nice and friendly.

My experience on the Carnival Freedom was top notch. Excellence in every category. From boarding to disembarkment, in port and at sea, the Freedom's crew made this a first class adventure, both fun-filled and relaxing.

Very relaxing Caribbean Cruise..just what we needed. by dkw430

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had canceled this cruise due to death in family but later rebooked. The ship provided us quiet time for recovery and rest, but also provided entertainment when we felt up for some fun. We enjoyed the Carnival dancers and the cruise director was a live wire and he drew us out of our sorrow to have fun in the lobby and up on Lido deck. We had the choice of sitting on our balcony or attending the shows and the Cruise director Brad would put such an emphasis on the action that he drew us out of our cabin.

Great Ports by JGeter1011

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The overall cruise was great,the food and entertainment could have been better. The ports were amazing I would definitely do this itinerary again. I would suggest that Carnival find a way to put more Kiosk for the sign and sail card on the ship as well as a better way to disembark.

I feel ripped off by kevntiff1999

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I will never book through again. I feel ripped off because I was under the impression my husband and I had $750 to spend onboard. When I got home and called 888-759-5514 the agent said that was only if I spend $10,000!! Are you kidding me?!?! So upsetting and deceiving. We would not have spent the money we did on the ship had we known that.
