Does the big screen take away from the poolside entertainment? RCCL really scaled back from the live pool reggae band, and we are hoping that Carnival has not done the same (and that the TV does not take away from the band and other live entertainment). How is the band, and do they play often?
- If you get a chance, when you speak to the headwaiter or Maitre'd... maybe you can ask if a waiter named Roberto Dejesus is aboard the Freedom. If not, I don't know if that have a way of checking if he is aboard the Liberty... we had him years ago and know he is still with Carnival... we would love to sail with him again.
I don't think the screen takes anything away. During sea days the band played several hours. In other hours the screen is used for a variety of purposes.. pool-side trivia, movies, etc.
Difficult to comment on the quality of the band, because they do change once in awhile, so nothing to assure they will be performing when you sail.
I'll try and ask about the waiter, next chance I get.
