the trip started out badly when we got a notification that our credit card was hit for $200 by Carnival before we even left on the trip. What! Called and told this was 'normal'. Requested a handicap cabin for spouse, It was a standard cabin with a normal shower stall but had a pull down seat. Had to take handles off scooter to get thru door. A foot high step to get into bathroom and a step (normally a ramp) to access balcony. Had to get a chair removed so we could even move in cabin with scooter in cabin. You'll love this one. the cabin safe require a credit card or drivers license to open/close. No, they didn't charge for use, but if we used my license and wife wanted in safe and I'm out on the ship somewhere, she would have to hunt me down to open safe. Instead of using the cabin key (used for everything else, rigtht?). Oh, and lockers in the gym were keypad, 4 digit open/close. DUH@ New rule: ship can't leave until all CPAP users verify they have them in their possession. They called the cabin 7 times asking if we had the CPAP. Each time the answer was the same, haven't received luggage yet we'll call you when it arrives. Oh,, and be prepared to pay for the needed distilled water. Good luck for lunch. The Lido buffet is not open for lunch. Also, stops serving dinner at 9:30 PM So no cookies/desserts post show time. Grab em early and put in room. Grand Cayman is a tender port which is usually no issue, especially if you have a carnival booked excursion. Wrong. We were on our own to catch a tender in time to meet our excursion on the dock. Crazy! Okay, good stuff. booked excursions at all three ports and everyone of them was wonderful. The dining room experience for dinner was very good. Never had to wait for a table using anytime dining. Service was excellent. variety of food was exceptional, Quality of food was good. Cabin service was excellent. However, the one time we ordered breakfast, it arrived an hour early. Somewhat inconvenient, but better than an hour late. Read Less

We choose this cruise to go with another couple that this was their first cruise. The ship was looking good inside and out after the dry dock. We had an ocean suite on the 7th floor. Room was nice, lots of room and storage. We were a bit surprised that the suite did not have a bathtub as the suites do on the bigger ships. Still had a nice big shower, but the wife really like a tub to soak in. We did the first night dining in the steak house which was very good. Service was very good. Food was great but there was a lot of food and we all over ate. The first night in the main dining room, level 3, early dining, was ok, food was good but the service was a bit slow. We were there 30 min. before we even got water and the breads. I did overhear a large group next to us complain that they had been waiting for over an hour for service. The place was full and they were very busy, so I think it might have been some new staff members. We only dining the main dining room once more and this second time the service was much better. The entertainment was very good but on the last night there was a power outage that affected the whole ship and they could not get the special effects to work in the theater so the performers just sang and danced as best they could given the short notice. We have two more cruises booked on the Freedom and are looking forward to those. Read Less

This was our 24th cruise on Carnival and would rate this one of the best!!! We like the size of the freedom. The crew was top notch,always happy and speaking to us in a happy manor. We found the food in main dinning room to be very good, and the service to be outstanding. We have cruised on the Carnival Vista 4 times this year as well, the Freedom we find is a much better ship, there are a few things we wish the Freedom had that the Vista has, but overall would choose the Freedom over Vista. We wish Carnival would make the casino NO smoking, the smoke was not nearly as bad as on the Vista. My wife and I are ex smokers but find the smoke very hard to tolerate. The service in main dinning room was far better than any ship we have been on in the past hew years. The only draw back was the steak house, the food was great, service was very poor. We judge the steak house in comparison to past experiences, we have eaten in carnival steak houses well over 40 times,and due to cut backs by Carnival, it has become not a great experience as it once was.
