Our third Carnival cruise. We sailed on Conquest, Magic, and Breeze. Last cruise was two years ago and it was very similar to the first. Both were 5-star experiences. Sorry to say the cuts by Carnival over the ...

Carnival Freedom one of the best

I am a seasoned cruiser, over 35 cruises 6 lines. Dining room. Freedom does well with many meats, filet mignon, ribs, lamb, and chicken. It is not so good with fish. Try the sea day brunches, really pretty good. ...
