Carnival Freedom - 70s Disco and Bar Nouveau

No Carnival ship would be complete without a wild adult disco lining the indoor Promenade. After the odd tattoo look of Carnival Liberty's disco, Carnival Freedom takes us back thirty years. With its rows of TV monitors and huge dance floor, the 70s Disco could well win a prize for best disco afloat. It's a winner!

Bar Nouveau

Time traveling is made easy on Carnival Freedom, so after dancing the night away to the pulsating disco beats of the seventies, why not regain your senses underneath a fin du siecle stained glass ceiling  at the attractive Bar Nouveau. Overlooking the full length of the Centuries Promenade, this is an excellent place to see and be seen, day or night.

Carnival Freedom - Singalong at Scott's Piano Bar

One of the happiest places on board Carnival Freedom is Scott's piano bar. Located aft of the Centuries Promenade on the starboard side, this upbeat sing-along bar is done in a 1910s décor, with blue pianos lining the walls and ceiling. Strings of neon lights connect the pianos, making it almost impossible to keep your attention to the piano player. Still, the atmosphere at Scott's is unique. In complete contrast, the rather boring International Lounge serves as Carnival Freedom's secondary show lounge, offering entertainment nightly. With its chrome and leather chairs and glass tables, this large room definitely lacks some character.

Carnival Freedom - staterooms

If you've had enough of piano bars, 70s discos, casinos and show lounges, you can retreat to any of Carnival Freedom's 1,500 staterooms. Of these, 61% are outside and 37% have private teak wooden balconies. Carnival has come a long way since the rather spartan look of the cabins on their Fantasy series and you will

find that the staterooms on Carnival Freedom are extremely well-equipped. My balcony stateroom on deck 8, featured a narrow verandah with two chairs and a good sized bathroom with power shower. With mini bars, LCD TV's and very comfortable beds standard, all I'd ask for is better sound insulation between cabins and corridors.
