2.0 Upgrades make Freedom a great choice
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
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 More 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. Less
Cabin review: 1241
Room was large. Our kids enjoyed being able to sit in the window sill (it's about 30 inches wide). Our son even took naps there. Our only complaint about the cabin was that there was a faint body odor smell.....but not enough to complain about. The location was quiet as we did not hear ship or passenger noise.
