It was very fun I do have one thing I would like to put in here since there’s not a space to put something you dislike really my daughter got sick the last day we were at sea and they kept on telling me my daughters temperature was fine when indeed it was not and they didn’t want to do the rectal temperature I had to do it myself and she end up having 103.6 fever instead of 98 because under the arm is not accurate at all don’t get me wrong they were very friendly and nice and trIRS to help me with my daughter but they need to understand that they should do the rectal temperature for young children my daughter is only one years old and had extremely high fever....
I am very unhappy with my cruise. Let me start by stating , We are previous cruisers but it had been 5+ years. This WAS the most disappointing cruise we have ever taken. First I specifically asked and questioned a few things from Wendy the booking agent before booking. This was my anniversary and a congratulations celebration for myself and my husband. I fully made her aware of this. Wendy and I went back and forth questions before finally booking because we had a lot of concerns . At the original booking of this cruise I stated that I wanted a balcony which was a must and anytime dining ( which is imperative as I am a diabetic) therefore, I have to eat early. Wendy stated that the balconies were sold out, suggested an oceanview. I specifically said I've never had an oceanview does the window open for fresh air- she said "yes". I agreed to take this room. I sent her an email asking about a charge for cokes onboard and confirming what I read because I haven't cruised in 5 years . Wendy replied back " Yes there is a charge -Sodas cost but you can also carry on your own soda if you would rather ". Upon getting on the ship we had to discard our cases of soda and bottled water because it was in a plastic bottle (Which we had no idea cans only are accepted.). Getting to the room we found the Ocean view window does not open. The anytime dinner we requested was scheduled for late dinner, therefore we were turned away when we arrived at 630. The trip went down hill from there.... The staff onboard were Very rude. The shipped had an awful smell of sewer throughout. The room we were in felt like a sauna at night-even after numerous complaints. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND CARNIVAL FREEDOM OR MAKE A RESERVATION WITH CRUISELINE .COM AGAIN.
Overall, the Carnival Freedom is a great ship that offers maximum fun. We have sailed on it 2x now and plan to sail on it again. Our favorite part is the Vista Wraparound Balcony. Book it as early in advance as you can because they go quickly.
We did not receive our $50.00 ON board credit that we were promised for booking the trip. We did enjoy the cruise. I think there is a little to much smoking on the cruise and smokers have no respect for those who do not smoke. Overall we had plenty to keep us busy and enjoyed the cruise.
I really really enjoyed the ports. I would definitely go back there again but probably on different cruise linear to try and see the difference or different ship. I wanted more things to do because I don't like bingo, CLUE or want seminars that I can relate to, and clubs as well. The freedom was just outdated I expected more. The ladies pamper party was anything but
In all it was the best vacation we have taken. At first we weren't sure if 7 days would be too long, but now we are thinking it was perfect/just enough time. Only one issue we had was with medic's response to a bee sting on return from Montego Bay. Situation wasn't treated as urgent/important at time and it upset my husband.
