carnival freedom

Enjoy a completely relaxed and fun-filled family cruise
vacation in a ship that's built with families in mind

Carnival Freedom sails from Port Everglades and has 5-, 6- and 8-day trips to the Eastern, Western and Southern Caribbean scheduled from Fort Lauderdale through January 2015.

On February 2015, it will sail on a repositioning cruise to Galveston, Texas. 

The Carnival Freedom was the last one built of Carnival's Conquest-class ships and can accommodate 2974 guests and 1160 international crew members.   

This ship's theme is "The Decades Through the Centuries"  and is reflected throughout the ship by recognizing the decades past.

The ship's architect, Joe Farcus, displays his signature style, bold and full of color. Some might consider his designs gaudy and over the top but it adds to the fun and playful atmosphere. 

In the spring of 2014, the ship underwent a major renovation to include Carnival 2.0 features that are sure to wow passengers.

Some of the newest additions include a revamped kid's club, new restaurants and bars, and shows. 

The Carnival Freedom is a great for casual, multigenerational family cruising that caters to all age groups. Here's a look at some of the amenities and activities that this cruise offers.
