If I understood it well, Celebration is not going only to Freeport but everything else is like before?!

Lena25.. that's how I read it.

In my opinion, skipping Freeport will only make the cruise better. I wonder when and where they are going to fix the "technical problem with the propulsion system". Probably not everywhere that you can replace a prop shaft or at the very least the propeller.

Or is it just going to limp around on one until the ship is due for re-ferb?

Carnival will provide guests that sail on this new cruise with a $100 per person credit to their onboard Sail & Sign account. In addition, guests that sail will receive a 20% discount off a future 3 to 7 day Carnival cruise (excluding Alaska, Christmas and New Years) departing prior to December 13, 2007. This discount applies to the cruise fare only.
Jim, you are right about getting rid of Freeport making it better - that's the cake - AND they're giving a $100 shipboard credit - that's the icing on the cake.

For sure, Freeport is a complete waste of a port call.

OK, so what happened to Freeport. I used to love going over on the weekends when I lived in Florida. Of course, it's been 25 years since I left Florida. We used to stay at the King's Inn, they made the best Caesar salad I've ever had. The beaches were just beautiful. What did they do to ruin this island?

Nice company! They don't even keep their employees informed of what's going on?

Maybe it was the way they presented it then but when I went there, the ship docs, there are taxis waiting at the end of the ramp and they take you the other side of the island ($10) to a tourist trap of a shopping area and a crappy beach. Then its $10 back to the ship. Nothing to see and no reason to get off the ship. Unless something has drastically changed since then (and from Chucks and Dave's post I gather it hasn't) Freeport is a waste of a prefectly good cruising day.

Jim,

That is my experience too. Perhaps it is different if one goes there and stays at a hotel, but the cruise stop is disappointing and boring to me.

That's truly ashame. It was really fun and the snorkeling was good as well. One day, I might venture back just to see what they've done. Thanks for the info

More bad news, which confirms my suspicions. The 8/21 cruise is cancelled. Read about it here.
