Carnival Freedom

July 2014 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Eastern

Great service! Food? Not so much

This was our first cruise and we had been hearing for years how wonderful the food is on cruises. Well, unfortunately we found this not really to be the case. Though the food was abundant throughout the ship with many different places to eat, overall the quality was just not there. First, shouldn't hot foods be served hot? I am somewhat surprised there isn't some sort of health code violations or something here. Not lukewarm to cold. And bland would be the best word I could use without being profane. There were a couple of exceptions. The Mongolian Wok was very good as was Guys burger joint and the Blue Iguana,(a made to order burrito bar) But let's be honest, how tough is it to screw up asian, burgers, and burritos?

On the other hand, our room stewards were absolutely fabulous. Always a smile and a friendly greeting by name in the hallways at all hours of the day.(Do these people never sleep?) And if we had any requests, they bent over backwards to fill our needs in a speedy fashion.

Another thing, if there are rules aboard ship, shouldn't they be enforced if not followed. Several times overly buff gentlemen strutted through the dining halls shirtless, mocking the posted signs to the contrary. And, if the teen club is supposed to be 15 to 17 year olds only, why were 12, 13, and 14 year olds and up to 20 year olds allowed to join in this supposed teen club? Not cool in the least. We trust our children to the cruise line and this is how they protect them?
