My husband and I cruised on the Carnival Freedom and it was the worst cruise we have ever had.
We are not new to cruising, we have been on 19 and 8 were on Carnival. First, we could not believe the amount of children on the ship. You could not get into the jacuzzi because it was a play pen for the kids. .Parents brought the infants in with diapers on. The crew tried to get the kids under control in the pool, in fear that they would get hurt, but the kids nor their parents seem to care There was an adult pool but daily the kids would show up with or without parents.
Our cabin was very nice and our cabin was always clean.
We tried to enjoy the nightly shows, but there was babies crying and children running up and down.
Dining was quite and experience. One night we waited 45 minutes for our first course and decided to leave and ate in the café. Breakfast and lunch we ate in the café. Half of the stations were closed so you had to wait in long lines. The coffee machine was always empty and we were constantly entertained by screaming babies.
