Carnival Freedom offers some of the latest and greatest features across our fleet. As you explore the ship, you’ll find yourself flowing through food options galore. Feast your eyes on dining rooms Posh and Chic, and look to Freedom Restaurant on Lido Deck for mouth-watering Guy Fieri burgers at Guy’s Burger Joint, plus the greatest tacos and burritos this side of the pier at BlueIguana Cantina.
Places for food are complemented by places for drink, from the always-tuneful Scott’s Piano Bar to the always-hoppin’ 70’s Dance Club. New libation selections include Alchemy Bar (cocktail magic central) and EA SPORTS Bar (the 50-yard-line of fun). An outdoor, seaside bar is a vacation requirement, and everyone’s favorite is aboard… whether it’s the RedFrog Rum Bar or BlueIguana Tequila Bar. (Or hey, both!) The rum bar's older brother, RedFrog Pub, features drinks, live music and traditional pub games. Topping off adult-time is the one-and-(adult)-only Serenity 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 the all-new Camp Ocean — but you can splash around with them in one of our many pools, speed down the Twister Waterslide, 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 Freedom Facts
Hasbro, The Game Show
You have played Connect 4 and Yahtzee, but have you ever played giant versions of them onstage in a competition that puts your gaming skills to the test? You'll have your chance when you take part in Hasbro, The Game Show. From SORRY! SLIDERS to YAHTZEE BOWLING, CONNECT 4 BASKETBALL, OPERATION SAM DUNK and SIMON FLASH, you can team up with your friends and family to win great prizes, all in front of a live audience. Be sure to check your daily on board itinerary for show times so you don't miss out on the action or the prizes.
The Punchliner Comedy Club
There is chuckle-funny, then there's laughing-so-hard-you-can-barely-breathe funny. To take our Punchliner Comedy Club talent way over the top, we've teamed up with renowned comedian and TV personality George Lopez. George is our curator of comedy, our finder of funny, our locator of laugh-out-loud (sorry, we will leave the jokes to him), helping select talent for our fleetwide Punchliner Comedy Clubs.
Serenity Adult Only Retreat
Somebody at Carnival knows just what you need, and it is pretty much exactly the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. Look, you will still be on the same ship as the kids, the hoopla, and all the Carnival-style excitement but you could easily forget, because when you’re at Serenity you could not be further from it all. The world you'll find yourself in is one of complete peace, sea breezes, swaying hammocks and, of course, a nearby bar. It's the place to get done the kind of stuff you just can't seem to do anywhere else reconnect with your partner, finish that book, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.
EA Sports Bar
If you are into sports, get yourself into the EA SPORTS Bar, the perfect place to catch a game and play a few, too. Grab a drink, order some snacks, watch your favorite games live on big flat-screen TVs, and keep up with real-time scores from across the sports world. And if you’re feeling 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.
Dr. Seuss Bookville
Let’s use our imaginations — just think what would happen if we took a normal library and put it through one of Dr. Seuss’s wacky contraptions… set to maximum fun, of course. It would probably come out looking much like Dr. Seuss Bookville, which as you can imagine, is exclusively aboard Carnival! The room is all decked out in bright colors, fun and whimsical furniture and even has some of your all-time favorite Dr. Seuss characters on the walls. But let’s not forget that this space is all about the books — the shelves are filled to the brim for hours of fun reading.
When was the last time you got up and danced at the theater? Playlist Productions takes tunes you know and presents them like you’ve never experienced before past favorites become full-blown musical productions featuring singers and dancers bringing down the house. Enjoy the spicy sounds of Latin Nights, or the larger-than-life favorites (and personalities) of Divas. Don't forget Motor City which will have you dancing in your seat or even The Brits!, a swingin revue of your across-the-pond favourites. Enter the center of groove with the passionate Heart of Soul. Rounding out the lineup is the anything-but-square Getaway Island, the arena-shaking sounds of Epic Rock, the piano-pounding 88 Keys, the totally bad-meaning-good 80s Pop to the Max, plus the funky, sophisticated... and not at all exclusive Studio VIP, where everyone’s welcome to come and get down!
Above the ship you'll find the shining sun, but that's not all basking in its rays is a gleaming symbol of fun, a monument to merriment a sign of splashy-good times to come. Spot the spiraling Twister Waterslide atop your Carnival ship and you can be sure that your vacation comes complete with twists, turns and squeals of thrilled delight. Countless gallons of water course through the entire length of this slide, so you're by no means dry when you start, but by the time you reach the end hundreds of feet later you reach new levels of soaking, splashing down in that classic waterslide photo-finish: hands-up, eyes wide and nothing but exhilaration on your face.
Dive In Movies
Ready to see stars? Park yourself in front of the big screen the really big screen and settle in for a night at the cinema under some real stars. From the comfort of your poolside lounge chair, or even the pool itself, you'll enjoy the most recent blockbuster movies from categories like Comedy, Action & Adventure and Date Night. And don't think that being in the middle of the sea means going without the usual comforts. There's not only popcorn who could forget that? but blankets! So lounge around, snuggle up and try to remember the last time you truly enjoyed a night at the movies.
Guy's Burger Joint
We went looking for someone to help us grill up the best burgers at sea, and we found just the guy. Carnival has teamed up with best-selling author, restaurateur and Food Network personality Guy Fieri to bring all the authentic appeal of a roadside burger shack to Guy’s Burger Joint, the cool poolside spot for hot burgers and hand-cut fries. Try a fresh-off-the-grill burger Guy’s way, or take it off-road to our toppings bar and truly make it your owBlueIguana Cantina
Nobody knows Mexican dining like a blue iguana. Well, our blue iguana, at least. That’s why it should come as no surprise that the BlueIguana Cantina features freshly made tacos and burritos stuffed specially for your enjoyment. Throw our homemade tortillas and salsa into the mix, and you have a casual dining experience that will make you say “mmmm” (which is actually Iguanese for “more, please”).Seaday Brunch
Forget what “they” say the most important meal of the day is brunch. Slumberers can sleep in and still enjoy breakfast favorites, while early-risers get a head-start on lunch. And Seaday Brunch brings everybody’s favorite mid-morning meal to your Carnival cruise, and does it right. You’ll enjoy huevos rancheros, special french toast, loaded mac-n-cheese… and yes, more ways to cook eggs than we even thought was possible. Chow down and fuel up you have got lots of exploring to do, across the ship, for the rest of the day.Dining Room
“Hey, which side does the fork go on?” is a question you’ll never have to ask at a dining room dinner aboard a Carnival cruise we set the table for you. We also bring to the table a full three courses in an experience that’s filling, but never stuffy you’re just as likely to catch waiters table-dancing as you are to order to dessert. Dessert’s included along with the rest of your meal, by the way in your fare. But don’t skip straight to dessert, because the main course is the main attraction; drop in daily and enjoy a rotating menu of delectable favorites, including steak, lobster and prime rib.Lido Restaurant
Featuring a nice variety of casual dining options like Mongolian Wok, Chef's Choice, Salad Bar, Carnival Deli and more, the Lido Restaurant has something or more likely, at least a few somethings to satisfy your craving. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and food options for everyone, you can enjoy your personal favorites while dining in the company of family and friends. It’s also where you can find our pizza station and soft serve and frozen yogurt both open 24 hours a day, which ought to be enough for anybody.Pizza Pirate
Tossing dough is an age-old art passed down the generations. Lucky for you, someone passed us the secret to the perfect pie. While aboard, this is the place that will shiver your timbers and warm you to the bone, 24 hours a day, with a Margherita, Funghi, Prosciutto, Pepperoni or Quatttro Formaggi pizza served with a delicious Caesar salad. Savvy? Then it’s the pirates’ life for you!Kids' Menu
Our kids’ menus, available at most onboard dining venues, feature foods that are delicious enough — and fun enough — to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. We’ve got all the familiar options they love from home, like spaghetti and meatballs, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, mac-n-cheese, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and — yes mom — fresh fruit and veggies. They should save room for dessert, though, because with sweet stuff like banana splits and chocolate brownies, your young’uns are going to be pretty excited. There’s even 24-hour pizza and ice cream… but these are subject to bed-time, of course.Fish N Chips
If you fancy fish, have we got the casual spot for you. At Fish n' Chips you can enjoy a delightful variety of hot and cold seafood favorites like cajun-barbecued octopus salad, ceviche, crisp fried oysters or cider-batter fried fish fillets served with hot, fresh chips (which, by the way, are actually fries). Since eating fish without a tangy dipping sauce is practically against maritime regulations, choose from tangy tartar, sweet chili, English mustard and more.The Sweet Spot
There is nothing sweeter than a visit to Sweet Spot for our specially-made marble chocolate cheesecake, lemon cream pies, cherry crumble squares and more. There is always something for everyone, including healthier options like fresh fruit medleys. Save room for dessert or skip the meal altogether and make sure you satisfy your sweet tooth with this mix of desserts that really hit the spot.
