BRITS ON TOUR-Carnival Freedom Dec 2009
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The cabins, food, service, entertainment, public areas, excursions and overall impression were first class. On my actual birthday we booked the Sun King Restaurant. I thought it may be a bit of a waste of $30 each as the food in the Posh dining room had been wonderful and the service 5 star. I could not have been more wrong. We were treated as VIP's, the food was to die for and the staff made me feel so special that I did not want to leave. More Unfortunately there was a deck party at 11pm so I had to go get my best togs off to join in... One little gripe; we were initially allocated a booth for 4 in the Posh dining room as our table for the whole cruise. NOT NICE, very dark, could not read the menu, could not see what was 'going on' anywhere else and could not mingle and meet new people.Diner style bench seats are not conducive with formal attire. Soon got moved though, and the Maitre D seemed so used to the request that I suspect that we weren't the first to complain. I'm a bit worried now though 'cos we've got the bug and I don't want to go with any different cruise line, we found Carnival excellent. Less
Cabin review: 6C2284 Ocean View
No complaints but we were charged for several drinks from the minibar that we never had. Easily sorted out at the desk on disembarkation though. Clean, warm, comfortable.Read All Ocean View (6C) Reviews >>
