Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2019

We have cruised 8 times previously and on multiple lines including past Carnival, Princess, NCL, and Celebrity cruises. This is close to the bottom of all the cruises I have taken. However, let me through out a few compliments:

1. Lucky, our cabin steward was exceptional. Even more impressive is her recall of mine and my spouses name by face the second day of our cruise.

2. Simon the cruise director of the Carnival Freedom who self effacive comedy kept things light on the cruise.

Cabin Review

Cabin Balcony

Very frayed, faded, and tired. Sewage smell from airline toilet.

Port Reviews


Our excursion was canceled due to a late departure and an assumed reluctance of the captain to make up the time. Our excursion was canceled and of course refunded. But little help was extended in finding last minute shore excursions.


We came, we encountered, we left, we returned. we left again.
