As someone who values spending money on activities rather than accommodations, I have always stayed in the most inexpensive cruise cabin available. My 5-day cruise to the Dominican Republic and the Turks & Caicos Islands aboard the Carnival Freedom was no different. However, in this particular instance, I was a bit weary about booking the cheapest stateroom, as Carnival doesn’t have the best reputation. Are you facing the same dilemma? If so, you came to the right place. Keep reading for a breakdown of all the Carnival Freedom Interior Upper/Lower Cabin has to offer as well as my honest review of its amenities.

My Opinion of the Carnival Freedom Interior Upper/Lower Cabin

Things I Loved 

  • The price was right.
  • The room was a good size for a solo traveler or two travelers who do not have a lot of luggage/require a lot of extra space.
  • The motion-activated light under the closet cabinets made it easy to get around at night.

Things I Didn’t Love 

  • The outlets were very limited. There was technically only one outlet available for both US and European plugs, so you are out of luck if you have multiple electronics and no adapter. I recommend purchasing a universal adapter to make use of all of the outlets in the cabin wherever you may be sailing.
  • The ladder leading up to the Pullman bed was flimsy.
  • There was nowhere to sit and relax (other than the makeup mirror bench). I was too tall to sit on the lower bunk, which is saying something because I am only 5 feet tall. My friend and I were forced to each lay in our respective beds during our downtime. 
  • The security lock box was very outdated. I am sure some of them work, but ours didn’t.

Overall, the room was sufficient, and I would stay in a similar cabin again. If you are very particular about your accommodations, or if anything I mentioned above is a dealbreaker, I’d look into another option; however, despite the pitfalls of this cabin, I was fine with it. It was a great option for my friend and I who did not require much space and did not spend much time in the room.
