Carnival Freedom--- Best Cruise Ever!!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
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 More 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. Less
Cabin review: 6c
We were in 2308 and it was a great location. Quiet. The cabin was set up with twin beds and not only that, was sagging in the center(s). The spread/duvet was not very "white" either and the steward changed it to King size early on and somehow removed the sagging also added newer/whiter covers. (I'm just used to my other cruises on Carnival ships with the "white spread/duvet and pillows on their other ships). The bathroom smelled of urine when we first came in our room. After telling him and asking that he "re-sanitize" our room it smelled fresh all week long.
