This week we are broadcasting aboard Carnival Cruise Line's Carnival Freedom, a ship that is based in Port Everglades (moving to Galveston in 2015). We are on an 8-night Southern Caribbean sailing this week. During a recent dry dock Carnival Freedom received Fun Ship 2.0 enhancements and the Seuss at Sea program, including Bookville, a Dr. Seuss character breakfast, parades, story time and photo opportunities. On top of Dr. Seuss, guests will also take part in Guy Fieri's signature Burger Joint, the BlueIguana Cantina, RedFrog Pub and Alchemy Bar. So much to do in so little time!
