Hey Guys, I haven't been on in awhile but wanted to give you guys some peeks into Freedom since this is its first cruise after being amped. For those on Periscope I have been doing some posting there too. But there are somethings I know you guys love that cant be easily put on there. Yesterday was a good day. When we got on they gave everyone a glass of bubbles (If you were lucky you could also get more :)). Since the ship had been in port for a few days it was available right away. We were also able to board right away. Sadly, the rooms weren't updated and ours had a leak in the shower. Some changes are subtle and some are huge. (More ship photos to come or check out my scopes) After touring for the morning ended up at Lime and Coconut for a Lava Flow. After that they had some free shots in the promenade so I had to get in on that. Little sample shots, but hey, they are free lol. Then we just pretty much relaxed, explored a little and went to dinner (Food photos will be in my next post). Not too much was going on as it was raining out. The coolest part of the balloon drop was when the new addition of a platform that comes down from the ceiling. (Will need to find a good way to post the video) For a ship that was practically sold out online, it is very empty. Super easy to find spots in the windjammer, not many lines, dinner was also pretty empty. After that we pretty much just relaxed and toured the trip until dinner time. (Food post to follow) Everything has been pretty nice. Many of the staff do seem brand new though but are fighting their way through it pretty well. The ship does feel empty though since it was sold out online prior to sailing. Many people have been saying their bids were won around the minimum. It was super easy to get a table at dinner time, the MDR was empty except for window seats. I think a lot of people didn't make it due to the virus. (Not gonna stop me though lol). I did forget to get some photos while I was scoping yesterday so will try to get those to post. I also need to find a good way to post the video of the balloon drop I took because they added a cool feature where the cruise director is on a platform that dropped from the ceiling (don't remember that from before). Let me know if there is anything you guys really want to see and I will try and get it.
I’ve always thought that Carnival’s practice of renaming ships after they go through revitalization was stupid. I think I may be coming around on that though after looking at the Shipmate app. The Amped Navigator for example is being held back by the reviews of Navigator pre-amping. If the ship had changed names it certainly wouldn’t be a 3 star review.
