Back from the Freedom
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We all headed to the lido deck for a wonderful lunch. Plenty of selections were available.
We were told our cabins would be available at 1:30, we headed to the cabins around 1:20 and found them all to be ready. We requested the balcony doors to be opened which was done by that evening. It was a very spacious balcony once all three were opened.
One thing I found on this ship is it was very easy to get a table for 6 adults and 2 highchairs on the lido deck at any given time. I recall being on the Pride 3 previous times and found it very difficult.
The staff with the exception of 1 person was wonderful. I was not aware the Carnival discontinued More giving the vouchers for future cruises. When I inquired at the future cruise desk the gentleman was very curt when he told me "we no longer do that, it seems no one ever did that and now that we don't have it, everyone wants it". Very rude.
I only went to 1 show as I had seen the shows already on previous cruises. I didn't remember the Big Easy show and we only stayed 15 minutes. We didn't care for that at all. It was so loud, I mean obnoxious loud.
Overall this cruise was my all time favorite with Carnival. The ship was very clean, easy to get around and great staff.
One other thing to add...we did find the service to be pretty slow in the dining room for breakfast. Less
Cabin review: 8E9268 Balcony
Our cabins 9268, 9270 and 9272 were in a great location. I loved being only a few feet from the Lido deck to grab some coffee in the am or an ice cream cone. The laundry room was right across from us which was a plus also. I will only do the lido deck from now onRead All Balcony (8E) Reviews >>
