Hi Everyone! I am hoping for some opinions of Carnival Freedom. I have sailed on Carnival many years ago, a older boat, the Sensation maybe and it was VERY small and dated. We did have fun though.
Regardless, I have been sailing on Celebrity and Royal Caribbean since due to the itinerary they have offered. I have been nothing but very pleased on both of those lines.
I want to take a cruise Thanksgiving week and Carnival has the best itineraries of all the lines for what I am looking for. I know Carnival has more children on the ship, but has anyone reading this been on Freedom? How is the food? How is the ship in general?
I have read the cruise reviews but I was looking for some personal opinions of anyone has time.
Also how are the cabins? I found this link online and if this is how the interior cabins look, I bet even the larger rooms like oceanview are even better.
mmajoyce - thanks for the great link. Super pictures. We are booked on the Freedom for the January 19 th sailing. I have heard nothing but good things about the Freedom.
I think any cruise ship will have more children on board during a holiday sailing, but being a new ship, the fares will be higher on the Freedom and will probably discourage a lot of younger families.
We have sailed Carnival many times, and have always been pleased with our experiences.We normally book balcony cabins, and love the size and layout. We have sailed the Glory and the Conquest which are sister ships, and we thoroughly enjoyed them both.
I hope this helps with your decision making :-)
