Carnival Freedom has a message for you, and it’s “feel free to have fun!” Explore the ship and you’ll find food options galore, starting with two dining rooms, but definitely extending outdoors — there’s mouth-watering Guy Fieri burgers at Guy’s Burger Joint, plus the greatest tacos and burritos this side of the pier at BlueIguana Cantina. For delicious, but quick and easy, selections from the sea, get your chopsticks around all the good stuff at Bonsai Sushi Express.
For every great food spot, there’s a great place to enjoy drinks, too, from the toe-tapping Scott’s Piano Bar to the always-hoppin’ 70’s Nightclub. For the thirsty, libation hotspots include Alchemy Bar and the 50-yard-line of fun itself, SkyBox Sports Bar. Everybody’s favorite outdoor seaside bar is here… whether yours is the RedFrog Rum Bar or BlueIguana Tequila Bar. (Or hey, make it both!) The rum bar’s older brother, RedFrog Pub, features drinks, live music and traditional pub games. Topping off adult-time is Serenity — adult-only, of course — the retreat where total relaxation is not only encouraged, but pretty much required.
If you’re a kid, Carnival Freedom means you’re in for a treat. Not only will you find new friends at one of three youth spaces — like Camp Ocean — but you can splash around with them in one of our many pools, speed down a waterslide at Carnival WaterWorks, or once you dry off, challenge them to a round of mini-golf. Oh, and adults — don’t get jealous; your inner kid gets to do all this stuff too!
Up on stage is Playlist Productions, featuring songs you know… and dance moves you’ll soon be using. And for a chance to get up on stage yourself, there’s Hasbro, The Game Show, where kids of all ages — even you, grandma — compete in larger-than-life Hasbro games come to life!
And for the cherry on top… it’s actually called Cherry On Top. It’s the spot for something special, whether that something’s a little something sweet — or simply a little something to sweeten a special occasion.
Carnival onboard enrichment facilities include an Art Gallery and dance classes.

An Interior stateroom is the most affordable way to cruise, and Carnival Freedom's interiors are not just cozy, but are full of things you'd expect from any Carnival stateroom: a full private bathroom, Carnival Comfort Collection linens and more.
Upper/lower bedding helps creatively maximize space for a pair of cruisers, while portholes give you the classic seafarer's view times two — a pair of round windows providing an affordable view of the ocean. These staterooms feature all the same amenities as other Interior staterooms, with a different layout — including one Twin bed, and either an upper Pullman or sofa bed.
Balcony staterooms were designed for maximum sea breeze and the most stunning views, so look to a balcony if you're looking to cruise aboard Carnival Freedom. Any time you're in your room, you're just steps away from your own personal outdoor oasis, featuring the sort of sea view you can also feel.
Aft-View Extended Balcony staterooms feature a larger balcony for more lounge-around room, more kick-back space... not to even mention some of the best stern-side views you'll find anywhere. Get ready to relax as you gaze upon Carnival Freedom's gentle wake from your spacious balcony.
Step into a Premium Balcony stateroom aboard Carnival Freedom and it’s easy to see exactly what you're getting: one seriously spacious stateroom. It's about more than just the room itself, you'll find... step onto your oversized balcony and you'll find that when there's a sea breeze in your hair, there's no limit to the relaxation you can have.
Premium Vista Balcony staterooms were designed to wrap around the aft corners of Carnival Freedom, giving you a unique vantage point from which to enjoy luxuriously panoramic views of the sky and the sea — and yes, take in even more of that sunshine.
Catch a glimpse of what's going by from your Ocean View stateroom aboard Carnival Freedom, where you'll get views you won't find anywhere on land. Don't miss sunrise and sunset at sea — your comfy stateroom is the best way to experience these!
Your Scenic Ocean View stateroom aboard Carnival Freedom provides the best view of the sea that lies ahead of the ship, with views unlike any on land. And you'll get more of them, too, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing plenty of looking-glass for gazing at the natural wonders of the sea... and let's not forget sunrise and sunset.
As you step into a Junior Suite aboard Carnival Freedom, you can't help but feel that you're stepping into full-size luxury in a smaller package. Featuring a standard-size balcony, in a Carnival Freedom Junior Suite you'll find everything else there is to love about a suite, including VIP check-in and a walk-in closet.
A Grand Suite aboard Carnival Freedom features even more space than the standard suite — plenty of room in your room! This stateroom is loaded for an unparalleled experience: VIP check-in, a huge balcony, and even a convenient dressing area with vanity.
A Carnival Freedom suite is the ultimate way to cruise. With more space for stretching out indoors, plus a large balcony for kicking back outdoors, try an Ocean Suite to experience private, luxurious relaxation. Ocean Suites also include VIP check-in, walk-in closet and full bathroom.
This is the best room you can get… without bunking up with the guy himself. A Captain’s Suite aboard Carnival Freedom features tons of indoor space, and a huge balcony when you need a little more. Back inside you’ll find a king-size bed, two full bathrooms (one with whirlpool tub), plus a separate living room that sleeps another three. And VIP check-in? Naturally.
Carnival Freedom's Porthole staterooms give you the classic seafarer’s view times two: a pair of round windows providing an affordable view of the ocean. If you tire of ocean-gazing in comfort — not that we think you will — there’s plenty more fun to experience aboard the ship!
An Interior with Picture Window stateroom on Carnival Freedom gives you a view beyond your stateroom, out to the observation deck outside including a great sky view. (Note that the view will be partially obstructed.)
Here's your chance to dip a toe into onboard entertainment, activities, bars and more… so that when you cruise, you're ready to dive headfirst into the fun.
There’s chuckle-funny, then there’s laughing-so-hard-you-can-barely-breathe funny. To take their Punchliner Comedy Club talent way over the top, Carnival have teamed up with renowned comedian and TV personality George Lopez. George is Carnival's ‘curator of comedy,’ their ‘finder of funny,’ the… ‘locator of laugh-out-loud’, helping select talent for the fleetwide Punchliner Comedy Clubs.
Their stage shows are designed to razzle and dazzle. Featuring talented singers, musicians and dancers performing crowd-thrilling numbers in extravagant costumes with awesome sets and scenery, it's like catching one of the best shows on land. All performances are created to ensure that every night feels like opening night. And best of all, since shows are included in your fare, it's like having top-dollar tickets to the hottest show in town, absolutely free
Nobody can get the party started like a great DJ, right? That’s why Carnival have brought DJ IRIE into the mix (pun intended) to make the nightlife onboard a Carnival cruise hotter than ever. He’ll be heading up “DJ IRIE’s Spin’iversity,” a program designed to train budding DJs to keep their spinning skills sharp and their personalities party-ready. Oh, and as for music, graduates will be spinning expanded musical catalogues in clubs across the fleet for maximum guest body-rocking.
A cruise is the perfect time to treat yourself to something sweet, and Cherry On Top happens to be the perfect place. You’ll find this well-stocked candy-and-more-store not only great for enjoying some of your confectionary favourites, but the place to pick up branded Cherry On Top gear and gifts for that special someone, even if — admit it — that someone sometimes happens to be you!
Want to rock ’n’ roll every night and every day? Well, you’ve come to the right ship. Carnival bring some of the best performers on land out to sea for an ambience that can’t be beaten. From happy-go-lucky island rock at RedFrog Pub to sing-alongs at the piano bar to let’s-get-this-party-started jams on Lido deck, chances are you’ll find a live performance on board that gets your hands clapping and toes tapping.
Grab the mic and channel your inner rock king, pop princess or disco queen, when you join in the karaoke fun aboard a Carnival cruise. Choose from traditional karaoke or the SuperStar Live Karaoke, where you don’t just pick the song you want to sing — you perform it backed by a live band playing guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and, yes, even your own back-up singers! Whichever karaoke experience you choose, choose from hundreds of titles that span a wide variety of genres, from Motown, country and rock classics to today’s pop hits.
The atrium is not only where you’ll find the grand staircase and wonder at the scenic high ceiling — it’s also the heart of any Carnival ship. Day or night, you can get your questions answered at guest services, plan some fun at the shore excursion desk, enjoy music that helps set the atmosphere… and even see what’s good at the Millennium Lobby Lounge Bar and happening on the dance floor.
If you love to play video games, you’re in luck. Carnival's video arcade boasts a huge array of games, and is open to players of all ages, all night and all day. So get some tokens from the vending machine and let the fun times begin. Challenge your friends to a game, or just see if you can beat the top score. After all, with the video arcade open 24 hours and an entire cruise ahead of you, you have plenty of time to try.
Night time isn’t the only time you’ll find stars on your cruise. Day or night, find a spot on deck and check out Carnival’s Seaside Theatre’s huge outdoor screen. Hit movies, sporting events and even cartoons for the kiddies are just some of the features you’ll find at the outdoor movie theatre. Check the Fun Times to see what’s playing during your cruise. Then get some popcorn, a friend or three and get ready to kick back and enjoy the entertainment!
Ready to see stars? Park yourself in front of the really big screen and settle in for a night at the cinema, under some real stars. From the comfort of your pool-side lounge chair, or even the pool itself, you’ll enjoy a big-name movie from categories like Date Night, Best Picture and Super Hero. And don’t think that being in the middle of the sea means going without the usual comforts. There’s not only popcorn but blankets too. So lounge around, snuggle up and try to remember the last time you truly enjoyed a night at the movies.
You’ll find the perfect gifts for friends, family or yourself at the onboard gift shops, stocked with so much good stuff you’ll want to shop ’til you drop (into a deck chair, of course). With everything from T-shirts to high-end timepieces, lockets to your favourite spirits (available duty-free), you’re bound to find something special for that special someone (even if that special someone is you). There are even sales on everything from portraits to spa products, so be sure to check out your daily onboard itinerary to see what’s going on during your cruise.
Experience the bold, psychedelic artwork of Peter Max. Or the vibrant energy of Romero Britto. You’ll have the chance to make one yours as you bid on your picks of hundreds of works. They’re all from the world's most popular contemporary artists, and all on your next Carnival cruise. Sip complimentary champagne, as you learn terms like intaglio. Expand your mind, as you encounter the fourth dimension through kinetic art. And of course, feel like a champion as the auctioneer declares you the winning bidder. Carnival auctions also feature sports memorabilia from your favourite champions. Plus, you're guaranteed to start or expand your art collection, just by attending the action — everyone receives a free work of art! Whether you’re new to the art world or a seasoned pro, you can take home something spectacular.
Carnival are pleased to introduce the RedFrog Rum Bar, where the frog keeps the fun hopping day and night with all that island flava you know and love. Join the party at this pool-side bar featuring a great selection of “frog approved” Caribbean rum-based concoctions available by the glass or pitcher and plenty of Carnival’s signature private-label draft beer, ThirstyFrog Red.
BlueIguana Tequila Bar is the onboard spot to chill and enjoy a slushy tequila drink or an ice-cold Mexican cerveza. The menu offers up Mexican favorites, including several brands of tequila and a slew of Mexican brews. There’s a line up of frozen concoctions, cocktails and margaritas served by the glass or pitcher and even a special Mexican beer cocktail (yes, really). Where can you find this little slice of Mexican paradise? Next to the pool, of course. So stay cool and take in the bar’s vacation vibe while you kick back on your cruise – that’s what the official bar mascot Blue the Iguana would tell you.
If you’re into sports, get yourself into the first-ever EA SPORTS Bar, the perfect place to catch a game and play a few, too. Grab a drink, order some snacks, watch your favourite games live on big flat-screen TVs, and keep up with real-time scores from across the sports world. And if you’re got that competitive spirit, you can really get right into the game with the latest video game titles from EA SPORTS. It’s free to play, so find a friend or three and get ready for action.
Play it again, Sam. Or Diana. Or whatever your name is. Because this is the bar where you call the shots – and the songs. Pull up a seat, order your favourite cocktail, and let your friendly piano player know the songs you'd like to hear. Then join the sing-along for a hand-clapping, foot-tapping, finger-snapping good time. Don't feel like flexing your vocal cords? No worries. Shy songbirds are welcome here, too. And since it's open from early evening to late at night, it's the perfect spot for a before-dinner drink or singing until the early hours of the morning.
Get up and get down at the most happenin’ club in the Caribbean. The Carnival DJs are spinning today’s hottest hits and yesterday’s golden oldies, guaranteed to get you out of your seat and tapping your feet. Whether you’re doing the robot or the worm or just swaying to the music, you’ll want to dance until the sun rises. Or at least until last call. Carnival's themed parties are pretty fun as well.
Try to keep your excitement under control — at least for the time being — because you're gonna need a steady hand and a little luck to win at the casino prize games. There are cash prizes and awesome electronics at stake, so when you win, you win big. At that point, feel free to go a little crazy, jump up and down if that's your thing… because you and your steady hand are winners!
Or why not try your hand at Roulette, Blackjack, Slot Machines, Poker or some of the Casino Tournaments!
Open 24 hours, the Internet café features private terminals where you have the ability to surf the Web, chat online and access your private Emil account. You'll also find FunHub terminals located throughout select ships, for when you just need to connect real quick. And if you’ve brought your laptop or other Wi-Fi enabled equipment onboard, feel free to log on with your personal device.
Looking for the perfect place to curl up for some quiet time? Look no further than the library. Sink into a cosy chair and let the hours drift by in this quiet onboard haven. It’s the perfect place to catch up on your reading, do a crossword, write a postcard to those back home, or stimulate your brain with a game of chess, checkers or Scrabble. If you forgot to bring a book, peruse the shelves for a title that interests you, or leave behind your just-finished paperback for another cruiser to enjoy.
Bingo buzz fills the air. You’ve got three cards in front of you, and you’re ready to play. What will tonight’s big game be? Postage stamp? Big X? Big T? Get ready to play some crazy-exciting, hoot-and-holler-if-you-win-big bingo. Cash prizes start at $100, and a jackpot game might add another zero to the pot. Other prizes include tour passes, gifts from onboard shops, spa services and more. So grab some bingo cards. That next B-6 could be the lucky call that lands you a whopping $2,000 jackpot or even a free cruise.
Kids never need an excuse to play, did you know that cognitive scientists — fully-grown adults without bedtimes — believe that play is essential to childhood development? At Carnival, we believe play is important to ALL ages, so onboard games are a huge part of the Carnival experience for all, young and old! From physical challenges to scavenger hunts to the very appropriate Battle of the Ages — the trivia game that actually pits kids against adults — Carnival puts the “all” in “fun for all.” (Not to mention the “fun.”)
The word trivia comes from “trivial,” which basically means ‘stuff that’s not important to know.’ Wait… unimportant?! Not if you’re planning on walking away with an unlimited supply of bragging rights… good for the rest of your cruise, not to mention when you get home. Don’t just show what you know — flaunt it. Here, being a “know-it-all” pays off.
You don’t need to be a mix-master to appreciate Alchemy – you just have to be up for trying something new. They’ve been stirring up some magic behind the scenes here at Carnival to produce a tasty series of all-new cocktails served at this unique vintage-themed cocktail “pharmacy.” Let their cocktail specialists prescribe you something from the bar, with both nonalcoholic and alcoholic elixirs to remedy what ails you. Or, create your own custom concoction from a variety of unique ingredients.
From the wine novice to the wine enthusiast, you’ll find the perfect vintage of red, white, rosé or blends at the wine bar. Order by the glass, or buy the bottle and unwind in this friendly setting. While vino is the specialty here, it’s also a full bar serving up a wonderful array of spirits, mixers, and delicious cocktails.
Winning big in the casino is big fun, and your next stop is celebrating with a top-shelf drink. Located right off the casino floor, the casino bar serves up your favourite cocktails, beer and wine, making this the perfect spot to celebrate with family, friends… and maybe even total strangers.
The International Lounge is the ship's second largest lounge with a bar, stage and dance floor. It is located on deck 5 with a capacity of 425. Live comedy, music, karaoke and art auctions are amongst the activities to be hosted here.
The Havana Bar, located on deck 4 with a seating capacity of 147, serves tea in the afternoon and is a place to visit in the evening to listen to Classical and Jazz music and have a smoke.
Get into an island state of mind before you even set foot on one. RedFrog Pub is our laid-back, no-worries, oh-so-lively Key West-inspired pub. Sample Caribbean fare, dominate at the foosball table, enjoy some sweet tunes from live musicians and sip our tasty signature private-label brew, ThirstyFrog Red. So kick back and feel the island vibe come to life. You’ll be a local here before you know it.
Swingtime Jazz bar features entertainment such as karaoke and trivia games and is located on deck 5 with a capacity of 88.
