Excellent experience!: Carnival Freedom Cruise Review by sandman123

Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
A great experience throughout. Fairly quick and straightforward embarkation, really impressed with the size of the cabin and its bathroom compared to other ships, rather reserved and discreet cabin steward but looked after us well.
Though obviously not the biggest ship, there seemed to be so much space everywhere you went, both inside and out.Have to admit the small number of children onboard helped a lot, this was mid September. Really appreciated the "Serenity" adults only area but might have been different during school holidays.Absolutely no problems with sunbeds at any time of day, even on sea days so that eased the pressure.
Really friendly and helpful staff, wide variety of entertainment, loads to do but with plenty of quieter areas More if you wanted. Very civilised group of passengers, primarily American, and a great relief from the more excitable European gangs you tend to have to deal with in the Med!Great port stops - Key West, Grand Cayman and Ocho Rios Jamaica but could have done with a little more time in each.
Only slight downside was the food - not great in the main dining room and totally chaotic in the self service breakfast. Everything else more than outweighed this though, definitely the most enjoyable we've had. Less
