Carnival Cruise Line continues to upgrade their older cruise ships with new features, attractions, and restaurants. Their latest cruise ship to emerge from dry dock after a multi-million renovation? Carnival Freedom.
This renovation is a part of the Carnival Cruise line’s industry-leading $2 billion cruise ship enhancement program that has added popular Fun Ship 2.0 innovations across their fleet. The updated spaces on Carnival Freedom were added during a three-week dry dock that took place in Freeport, The Bahamas. The new and enhanced experiences include:
WaterWorks: Featuring a 203-foot-long AquaTunnel slide and Carnival Cruise Line’s signature 212-foot-long Twister slide along with a 75-gallon PowerDrencher tipping bucket and SplashZone area for kids.
Bonsai Express: the success of the full-service Bonsai Sushi restaurants has spawned this casual spot, featuring a mouth-watering array of sushi, sashimi, rolls and more.
Expanded Retail Spaces: Amall-style shopping area lined with retail outlets offering fine jewelry, watches, fragrances, and more along with the cruise line’s own branded spaces including the all-new Carnival Adventures shop. The new shop offers everything guests need to maximize their fun on board and ashore, from snorkel gear and swim fins to sunscreen and waterproof backpacks.
These complement the wide array of popular experiences on board Carnival Freedom, including Guy’s Burger Joint created by Food Network star Guy Fieri, the poolside BlueIguana Tequila Bar, RedFrog Rum Bar, and BlueIguana Cantina, along with favorites like a classic American steakhouse, Punchliner Comedy Club, the cocktail pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bar, and the Caribbean-inspired RedFrog Pub.
Family-friendly options include Seuss at Sea operated exclusively with Dr. Seuss Enterprises that includes the Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with The Cat in The Hat and Friends and an all-ages reading venue called Dr. Seuss Bookville, along with fun supervised programming for kids ages 2-17.
The cruise ship has resumed six and seven day Caribbean cruises from Galveston, Texas. The cruises visit top destinations in Jamaica, Mexico, Belize and Grand Cayman.
