Carnival Freedom

Sail Date: June 2011
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Just got off of an eight day on the Carnival Freedom which took us to Cozumel, Costa Rica and the Panama Canal. Have been on 6 Carnival cruises and this cruise was as good as the rest of the Carnival ships. It is a fun cruise and the people on board seem to have a good time. A good mixture of young and old. Keep in mind that this is not a super high grade cruise and if you go in thinking it is then you will be disappointed. The food was very good, Not 5 star but good food that fills the need. Ate at the steak house three nights as it was superb.

The entertainment was good, again not great but it was fun.

What I want in a cruise is to relax, have fun, enjoy the surroundings, ports, enjoy good food throughout the day. I enjoy a good workout in the morning and had a massage.

If you are a fuddy duddy/stuffy and cannot make the most of it then this may not be your cruise.

I recommend this cruise. Less

Cabin review: 8E Balcony

Small, but what do you expect, pony up for a suite and may be good but who wants to be in their room all day.

Port and Shore Excursions

Went snorkeling, very relaxed, ate at a local restaurant, had a few Carte Blancs, came back on the ship for a relaxing massage.
