Ship Facts: Carnival Freedom Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Freedom Deck Plans
Carnival Freedom--- Best Cruise Ever!!
Freedom has wonderful music (R&B) etc. playing thruout. The shows in the main lounge are second to none. The costumes were superb. I felt we should be watching these productions on Broadway. However, there was one evening with a not so good show. I think it was geared toward the "seniors". Sinatra type of music, etc. The service and staff very friendly. Music in the lobby and walkway in front of casino was excellent. Their Karaokee was not all that great. I think the room was to large which made folks feel "impersonal". The best Karaokee I've experienced was in smaller settings and everyone felt more personal.

The food was great, but not as good as other ships which was superb! Half of the menus were repeat, more often that I expected. Even in the formal dining room. I really like the diners spread for the late nighters (held in the area of the clubs which was set up near the sushi-bar location. Also disappointed that there were no burgers and fries on the lido deck late at night. Only pizza.

Overall it was our best cruise ever!!! Music, shows, food, service.

One other point is, it is a beautifully decorated ship, and pristine clean throuout, except for the balcony had layers of oily salty film on the railing and it's furniture. Also the windows were dirty in the rooms and the dining room (lido deck) windows. Could not take any decent pictures thru them without a smeared, smudgy, filmy appearance. I have not seen any other ship with dirty windows like that. This is a first for Carnival. That was really a let down because stopping at five ports I like to take pictures from my room/window.
