We just got back from the Freedom western a week ago.....

GREAT ship.

Excellent having a LONG day in Key West.

Grand Cayman was unbelievably gorgeous.
Can't wait to go back there.

Ocho Rios was exactly like advertised.
Either stay on the ship or book an excursion and get away from the city.
We thought the pushiness of the vendors and cabbies might have been exagerated like we always find it to be in Nassau.
Nope.....
We got off the ship and tried to walk around a bit and were hassled repeatedly so much, we were back on the Freedom in less than 2 hours, watching Iron Man at the poolside theater.

The 3 new Mystic Mountain excursions seemed to be the most popular among the 20-30 people we talked to that night and the next sea day.

Most who took one of the 50-60 various Dunn's River Falls and ______
excursions, stated that it was crowded most of their time at the falss.

If Carnival would switch a better port like Cozumel for Ocho Rios, this itinerary would be a home run in my book.
