Carnival Freedom has completed its dry dock in the Bahamas and the ship has now returned to service with the latest features and enhancements.

Carnival Freedom Completes Upgrade

The third Carnival cruise ship of 2019 has been upgraded and it’s only March! Carnival Freedom returned to service on March 9 after completing a refurbishment which lasted just over two weeks.

The renovation took place at the popular Grand Bahama Shipyard in Freeport, Bahamas and you can check these photos which we previously posted during that time. The majority of Carnival ships are upgraded there due to its close proximity to vessel itineraries.

Carnival Freedom went into dry dock on February 13 and during that time a brand new waterworks was installed. This will bring even more fun to all types of guests and brings the ship inline with other already upgraded ships in the fleet.

A new Deli and Bonsai Express were also added to provide even further dining choices. This is all in addition to the regular new carpeting, tiling, stateroom updates, hull paint, and maintenance. The upgrade was completed on March 8.

The Conquest-class vessel was previously refurbished in 2014 and that was when all those FUN 2.0 features were added such as Guy’s Burger Joint and the Alchemy Bar.

This leads us to one of Carnival’s largest ever ship upgrades! The Carnival Triumph is undergoing a major transformation into Carnival Sunrise in Cadiz, Spain. The ship will debut with new cruises out of Norfolk, Virginia on April 29, 2019, so do keep following Cruise Hive for all the latest on that front.
