Freedom Spring Breakers Cruise 2016
"Here we go, everybody--I am a longtime Carnival cruiser (gold level at the moment), but have also cruised NCL and RCCL, so I like variety (but still have a preference for Carnival). Gonna break this up so it isn't..."Read More

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

This was my first cruise. I had a good trip, even with the changes caused by the corona virus. The food was very plentiful and the varieties seemed endless. There was dinning for every type, from the burger joint to the verrrry formal. Like what you saw on pictures of the movie THE TITANIC. The restaurant staff was very polite and tables were always available. The dinning times kept your ...

Age 40s

This was my first cruise and probably the last one. To start with when we arrived we were not told that the bags could be checked in and taken to the rooms when it was ready later. The room was not available until 2 pm. We had a check in time of 1130-1200. The service form the start was terrible. We were not informed of any of the events that were planned for the cruise. We missed the clue game, ...

Nothing better to me than Carnival and Freedom is my all time favorite,. I've sailed 4 times this last year. Once on Carnival Vista, however nice, Freedom is my choice how the crew remembers me and always makes you feel so welcomed.. The food is worth every cent, the entertanment is always amazing. Would like to sail to different places, but can only leave out of Galveston. When we had a ...

My husband and I booked last minute for this cruise. We literally had the last outside Jr.Suite. The room was clean and too comfortable:) We were greeted at IAH by the Carnival transfer represented (very pleasant) and organized. Comfortable one hour bus ride(took a nap). Arrived where our luggage was taken promptly to the ship. The smoothest check in no hassles. We were greeted with champagne as ...

We were already scheduled on the Freedom for 22 December with family, but found a suite on the 15 December cruise and decided to make it a back-to-back. Luckily it was a fantastic choice. We've sailed Carnival before and had some good and some not so good experiences, but dang. Things have changed. I'll say up front that I don't know if the great changes are company-wide or if it's just on the ...

The bright spots first: 1) food overall was very good - and a complete surprise to us 2) staff in the restaurants and cabin were very good 3) cabin size was very good and was comfortable 4) the live band in the Red Frog Pub was great Now the Bad: 1) entertainment in the ...

Embarkation was easy with no issues got right on the ship we were early for our embarkation there was no problems. Disembarkation was a slap in the face that our vacation was over ( not Carnivals fault) we were in line for 2 and half ...

There were so many wrong things about this cruise...where to begin? Let me start with the positive. Our cabin steward, Wejaya and his assistant Anna were great! They kept the room sparkling clean, with fresh ice and a new towel animal every day. Our room was on Lido deck, close to the buffet areas and pools. Anna and Wejaya worked hard from dawn to dark but were always pleasant and greeted us ...

I chose this sailing for smaller ship size and ports. The service for the past few cruises has declined due to massive cutbacks in personnel. This effects the customer and turnover rates. This last sailing, I actually got a steward who verbally insulted me, made up the room only twice in one week, never brought the one item we asked for (ice), left our clothes at the laundry (we sent out 2 bags) ...

I chose this cruise because it was going to different places that I had not been to before. Getting on the ship was easy! Dropped off the luggage and walked on board, total time, less than an hour! Had lunch at Guy's Burger, it was an average lunch. Suitcase was already at the room before we went to the room. We were in cabin 6201, the room itself is nice. In a quiet area of the ship (nice ...
