Cruise Ship Overview

The final ship to be built in the Conquest-class, Carnival Freedom entered service in 2007 and will be the last vessel in its class to receive Carnival’s "Fun Ship 2.0" upgrades with new casual dining options and poolside bars when it is scheduled for refurbishment in 2014. From her departure port in Fort Lauderdale, Carnival Freedom sails eight-night cruises to the Southern Caribbean.

Taking Fun Ships to new lengths and widths, Conquest-class ships are among the largest in the Carnival fleet. They're basically larger and more feature-filled versions of earlier Destiny-class vessels. More space translates into additional decks, an upscale steak house, and even more bars and lounges; however, well-proportioned public areas belie the ships' massive size. You'll hardly notice that there's slightly less space per passenger after you take a thrilling trip down the spiral waterslide.

Public rooms flow forward and aft from stunning central atriums. Just off each ship's main boulevard is an array of specialty bars, dance lounges, discos, piano bars, and show lounges, plus seating areas along the indoor promenades. The promenade can get crowded between dinner seatings and show-lounge performances, but with so many different places to spend time, you're sure to find one with plenty of room and an atmosphere to suit your taste.
