CRUZERS FOREVER: Carnival Freedom Cruise Review by frstimecruzers
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Before ever boarding the cruise ship we had ordered gifts off line and once we get to our room,all gifts were in order. Also, each day my husband was to receive gifts they came as expected. At dinner the staff sang to us 2 More different nights unexpectedly for our anniversary,which was a blast.
Freedom always has something going on no matter what time it is,such as clubs, comedians,piano bar,or pool parties, and you are never disturbed even if napping. I have to comment on the Millenium Bar for the best drinks and bartenders ever. Also the dining staff in the chic dining room are always attentive to your every need,and the food was always better than expected,from breakfast whether in the Posh dining room or on the lido deck, buffet lunch on lido deck to dinner whether in chic dining room or Sun King Steakhouse.
A special THANKS to Kim,our group leader with the Behind The Scenes tour,a must do for all future cruisers! Also a special THANK YOU TO Lindsey,who was always available to help with shopping and made our experience the best at each of the 5 ports we attended. The deals we got were unbelievable.
Last, THANK YOU to Carnival, I played bingo on two different occasions on the cruise and the first on Tuesday not winning a thing, the second on Saturday night the last night of our cruise, and I wasn't going to play but my husband talked me into getting a bingo card and I did. I WON!! Enough to pay off everything we had charged the 8 days on the ship,paid for parking for our car 8 days, gas and food on the way home and still brought money home! THANKS TO CARNIVAL FOR PAYING US ON THIS CRUISE AND MAKING IT A VERY MEMORABLE FIRST ANNIVERSARY FOR MY HUSBAND AND MYSELF!!!
Needless to say we have found a new way to vacation in the future. We are looking at cruising in August with Carnival Sensation with our kids for their first cruise. Less
