A message from Carnival Freedom: "Feel free to enjoy!" As you explore the ship, you'll find plenty of dining options, starting with two dining rooms, but definitely al fresco. Guy's Burger Joint has a delicious Guy Fieri burger. ™ and the best tacos and burritos can be found this side of the pier at the BlueIguana Cantina™. Bonsai Sushi Express™ is a delicious, quick and easy way to get your hands on seafood.

In addition to all the great places to eat, there are also great places to have a drink, from the evocative Scott's Piano Bar to the ever-booming '70s nightclub. Hot spots for thirsty people include the Alchemy Bar® and SkyBox™ Sports Bar with 50 yards of fun. Everyone's favorite outdoor waterfront bars are here, including the RedFrog Rum Bar® and the BlueIguana Tequila Bar™ . (Or do both!) The rum bar's big brother, his Red Frog Pub®, offers drinks, live music and traditional pub his game. Adult time concludes with Serenity - adults only of course - a retreat where total relaxation is not only encouraged, but needed.
