Ship Facts: Carnival Freedom Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Freedom Deck Plans
Just got off the Freedom

We went to Key West, Ocho Rios & Grand Cayman. My review will be off kilter a bit as we went on the Breeze last year and it was A-MAZING. In comparison...there is none. Also, consider that the Freedom is going in to dry-dock very soon for refurbishment. Overall, it was what we expect traveling on a Carnival Cruise. Food, service all about the same. Ports good, excursions booked off ship...did not give in to Carnival hard sales tactics other than the spa, which our girls (7 & 10) loved. I would have loved my $150 massage/facial more if the walls were not paper thin as to hear toilets flushing and thumping from classes throughout. That said, we did have a very nice trip and plan to sail on Carnival again. This was our 5th with them. For the price we pay, I do not expect Q E 2 service and quality. This is the Holiday Inn of cruising, so take that for what it is worth and expect accordingly. Ship comedy shows were great, main show....eh. We all love trivia and the usual pool games. Missed the BINGO on Lido the Breeze had as well as the pool activities being broadcast on the pool screen.

However we did have a bit of a grouchy room steward who seemed upset that we requested towel animals for our kids from the front desk ( we would have asked him had we ever saw him). He also was annoyed we reported on the day of departure that we had a not full mini bar (as we did not want to be charged)...and finally seemed very irritated when we called to ask if he had taken linens from the cabin as we had lost a stuffed animal and thought it may have gone to the laundry by mistake.

Weather perfect....lots of Spring Break college kids...as expected. Can't really complain for the price!
