Default No Freedom Reviews Submitted?

Apparently, over 80 Cruisemates joined the Freedom for Turkeys sailing last month, yet aside from the daily reports, no reviews have been submitted.

I'm interested in the individual perspectives...... so how 'bout you all get a-reviewing???????

Folks with nothing better to do just gotta know.

Well, you all have to open your eyes! I have submitted two reviews thus far. That wa a 7 day cruise and I have over 600+ pictures to wade through as well.

Look under the Carnival thread for day one and day two of my Thanksgiving cruise and see the photo link for pictures.

There's this article on the home page that Paul wrote from his time on Freedom, with TONS of good pics
http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/...ree-112607.cfm

Along with my daily reports live from the ship on the Carnival board as well.
http://www.cruisemates.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=586044

That's quite a bit of detail about the ship and cruise, between those two.

If there's something more specific you might want to know, you can also certainly ask. Though you're likely to get many more responses on the Carnival message board than here in Chit Chat.

PS: and I sent the 8-year old girl who asked for the photo of the Waterslide Rules over to Cruise Critic, where she actually might find someone to oblige her. And, hey. someone did.
A such a Cynic...
I sent a reply your question to OUR message board to the exact thread where you asked the question FROM THE SHIP- I also posted a picture of the rules and the signs in the photo gallery. Guess you didn't tick the box to get the notice of reply where you asked the question, or didn't bother to look back.

If you'd asked for pics of Carnival Carnival I'd have sent those along too.

No need to let facts get in the way of your negative banter though

I do agree, the more reviews you can read to research, the better educated you're going to be on what to expect. Hope you'll be taking the time to write a full review to share when you get back.

I encouraged others in the group to add their points of view to my virtual cruise reports when they got home, because everyone has different experiences on the ship. And there were in fact many families in our groups, where the kids used Camp Carnival, which would have been helpful. Unfortunately most didn't choose to.

I found this one in CruiseMates Members Reviews. I don't know when it went up, but I assume you'd have checked the Member's Review area already.... maybe not.

Kuki that is a new review and very informative. Is this statement true? "The kids did enjoy the slide and pools, especially the wave pool. I didn't know the center pool had the wave action, and we did have a great time in there! Very nice!" Mongolian bbq and a wave pool this is going to be a great cruise.

I can't say for sure since I never went in the pool. But I certainly dont recall these ships having a wave pool.... other than the ship was moving around alot.

It went up yesterday ... just hours after I received it.

I'm the one who puts all these reviews up and I try to get to them within 24 hours after getting them in my email queue. And, usually, I do much better than that.

If CC is looking for Camp Carnival responses for the Freedom, I don't know if anyone in our group had anyone young enough for that group. I know the Camp was in full swing as I saw and participated in some of their hunts when they asked for people to sign their hunt lists. Well behaved.
