This coming April, Carnival’s Carnival Freedom will undergo an extensive, multi-million-dollar renovation, which will add the first Bookville family reading venue – part of the recently launched Seuss at Sea program in partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises – along with a variety of dining, bar and entertainment innovations that are part of the line’s Fun Ship 2.0 product enhancement initiative.
The new Bookville will offer Carnival Freedom guests a special, Dr. Seuss themed play and reading space featuring iconic décor, colors, shapes and funky furniture inspired by the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. Bookville will feature a number of classic Dr. Seuss books, arts and crafts, toys, games, Seuss-a-palooza Story Time, and a special character parade, which will take place along the ship’s promenade.
In addition, Carnival Freedom will also receive a number of popular Fun Ship 2.0 features, including Guy’s Burger Joint, Blue Iguana Cantina, Alchemy Bar, Red Frog Rum Bar, Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, Cherry On Top, Red Frog Pub, and The Warehouse, a new entertainment center, featuring video games, arcade games, and fun prizes.
“With the debut of the first-ever Dr. Seuss Bookville, along with an array of exciting dining, bar and entertainment concepts, we’re making a terrific ‘Fun Ship’ even better and creating a lifetime of wonderful vacation memories for guests of all ages,” said Gerry Cahill, Carnival president and CEO. “Incorporating these fantastic new spaces on Carnival Freedom also provides travel agents with yet another attractive ‘Fun Ship’ vacation option to market to their clients,” he added.
The Carnival Freedom’s drydock is scheduled to begin in Freeport on April 19th and completed by May 3rd. All of the entertainment upgrades are scheduled to be available for all guests by June 14th. Following the renovation, the Carnival Freedom will resume sailing a variety of Caribbean itineraries from her homeport of Port Everglades.
