Ship Facts: Carnival Freedom Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Freedom Deck Plans
2.0 Upgrades make Freedom a great choice

With 2 kids in tow (ages 2 and 3), we love Carnival because our youngest can participate in the kids program. Most lines require a child to be 3 in order to participate for free. Since the Freedom was just in dry dock last month we were excited to see the changes. They are wonderful! Guys Burgers, the Cantina, new production shows, brand new Camp Ocean, Dr. Seuss parade, and Red Frog pub were our favorite features just added to the ship. We felt the food in the main dining room was excellent.....favorites included lobster, seafood pastas, snapper, chocolate melting cake and bitter & blanc bread pudding.

The weather cooperated in all of our ports. Getting on and off the ship was fast...never stood in line. In fact, the only time we stood in a significant line was on the last sea day for brunch.

We have sailed on Princess, Royal Caribben, Celebrity, Norwegian and Disney and we feel as though Carnival offers the best value for young families. My wife is a stay at home mom and having dinner with my her most nights while the kids had a great time in Camp Ocean provided a wonderful break.

We have very few things to offer constructive feedback on......we both noticed the staff, from room steward to dining staff to camp ocean counselors all seemed a bit tired. After learning how often they get a day off I can understand why. In spite of this, they were consistently professional and courteous.

With the 2.0 upgrades the Freedom is a great value over some of the brand new ships.
