About Carnival Cruise Lines
TThe Carnival Corporation is the largest cruise company in the world and operates several different brands. The “Carnival Cruise Lines” brand has the largest fleet in the group with 24 vessels. The fleet sails almost exclusively in the seas of North America and the Caribbean. For Carnival Cruise Lines the guest’s experience of the ships is at least as important as the visited destinations.
The Carnival Freedom entered service in March 2007 as the last built “Conquest Class” ship and was refurbished in 2014. It has a length of almost 291 meters and accommodates up to 2,980 passengers. The Carnival Freedom offers a huge variety of entertainment, dining possibilities and activities. The Conquest Class ships are not only perfect for fun and entertainment seekers, but also for those who enjoy a large variety of delicious foods.
Atmosphere on board
Carnival Cruise Lines calls their vessels “fun ships” and yes: it is very difficult not to be entertained on board. But this does not mean that guests will feel disturbed by wildly partying people all day. There is enough room to relax and enjoy some quietness. The dress-code reflects this concept: casual attire is perfect for almost any situation. Only for dinner in the main restaurants a more elegant style is recommended. There are even one or two festive evenings, where evening dress is required, but you may easily escape this when not dining in the à la carte restaurants. Though guests come from all over the world, usually most people on board are US citizens.
The design of all staterooms is modern and comfortable. You will find all amenities you would expect from a good hotel room. With at least 15 m² the staterooms are quite spacious. About one third of all cabins have a private balcony. The choice from interior cabins to the grand suites is large enough to fulfil almost every guest’s wish.
Food and Beverages
Explore the world’s different cuisines in the numerous restaurants or enjoy the daily multi-course dinners in the main à la card restaurants. Here you may choose between early, late and open seating. If you prefer it more casually, how about a pizza or a burger? Of course you might also try out the 24/7 room-service. Carnival Cruise Lines caters for every taste.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
As Carnival Cruise Lines calls these vessels their “fun ships”, you can be sure that you will be entertained very well. Las Vegas style shows in the grand show lounge, thrilling games in the casino, enjoy a freshly mixed cocktail in one of the lounges, a big laugh in the “Punchliner Comedy” or a dance to live music – Expect it all and get it all.
Of course the Carnival Freedom also offers many ways to relax, such as the spa area where a wide choice of treatments is offered. For those who feel the urge to move, the fitness area and sporting facilities are great choices.
