Ship Facts: Carnival Freedom Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Freedom Deck Plans
First carnival cruise onboard the freedom
We cruised for the first time on carnival aboard the freedom.
 May-9-09 Embarcation was smooth and the long lines moved fairly quick.
Took the suggestion of others and went straight to lido and had lunch at the
mongolian grill. Have to say now that this was some of the best food that we had onboard.
 Then got to go to our cabin 4606 upper deck. cabin was great , Luggage was there by 1:15 . Room steward( Harry) was top notch. Only extra request i had of him was to keep my ice chest full and he never failed.
 Will never cruise again w/o a balcony.
  Walked around learning our way around the ship till time to get ready for dinner. Found our seat at a table for 6 another couple came in and we found out they were members of our roll call. We ordered soup , shrimp cocktail,
and entree. 
 Heres the Bad: The food to us had absolutly no taste. Now let me say that we are from south Louisiana and like alot of flavor in food. not pepper but spices and herbs. the shrimp had zero taste the soup was ok , had a little salt. the entree  had  no flavor at all. 
 same w/ the shrimp and lobster on the first formal night, Zero taste.
 i realise that they can't cook w/ pepper and salt as some people can't eat those items but anyone can stand a little garlic or rosemary or basil?
  To top off the tasteless food ,Our waiter did the bare minimum to get by.
 when we had ceaser salad no one at our table was offered cracked black pepper . We saw waiters all around us offering it to the diners at there tables. same w/ mint jelly on the night we had lamb chops. (The lamb was cooked to perfection except for no flavor) .
 The four of us at the table decided to not ask the waiter and to see if the service improved. ( It didn't) .
  We were very dissapointed in the food.
 DW and i had a great time and got into all the passenger games and won a couple of medals. Stayed in the piano bar and sang along most nights.
 Saw the shows , played bingo, won a bit in the casino.
 To rate our cruise , i'd have to do it in 2 parts .
 The first would be the dining . C-
 The second would be everything else. A+
 We will definatly cruise carnival again and just know ahead of time to bring some seasoning w/ us to eat in the dining room.
