Catch a glimpse of what’s going by from your Ocean View stateroom aboard Carnival Freedom, where you’ll get views you won’t find anywhere on land. Don’t miss sunrise and sunset at sea —your comfy stateroom is the best way to experience these!
Balcony staterooms were designed for maximum sea breeze and the most stunning views, so look to a balcony if you’re looking to cruise aboard Carnival Freedom. Any time you’re in your room, you’re just steps away from your own personal outdoor oasis, featuring the sort of sea view you can also feel.

Things to Do
Amber Cove, Dominican Republic
The Amber Cove Cruise Center is still pretty new—and it’s a pretty big deal, to boot. When it opened along the Dominican Republic’s northern “Amber Coast,” it re-opened the area for cruise ships to visit. (The last ship to call at nearby Puerto Plata was almost thirty years ago.) Your ship will sail into the Bay of Maimon, a short distance to the north-west from Puerto Plata.
Grand Turk is truly paradise on a stick! If you close your eyes and picture paradise that is exactly how Grand Turk looks! The moment your cruise ship pulls into port you are met with gorgeous white sand beaches, turquoise water and so much more! Barely a few minute walk from the ship is an amazing white sand beach, lawn chairs and gorgeous water waiting for you! Grab a chair, drop your towel and head for the water it is so fantastic! The water in Grand Turk feels like bath water. It is so warm and inviting.
Finding a way to escape with your girlfriends has never been easier. All you need to do is gather your friends and block off your calendar – Art N Soul Escapes will take care of the rest!
Terms & Policies
Due to the fluid nature of the COVID-19 situation, we are constantly monitoring travel restrictions and safety measures while keeping our clients’ health and safety at the core of everything we do. We recognize the uncertainty and questions you may have as the situation around the world continues to evolve. Working in coordination with our official partners and suppliers, we are doing everything we can to assist our customers in response to travel developments associated with COVID-19.
As a commitment to our brand, and in order to keep yourself and your fellow travelers safe, we ask that ALL Art N Soul Escapes travelers submit a negative Covid-19 test within 2-3 days of departure (regardless if required by the destination). We also require that all travelers wear a mask when traveling in groups with one another, or as requested by our suppliers. Your acceptance of this booking acknowledges you have read and agreed with our terms and conditions.
A full list of terms and conditions can be found here.
Until further notice, we will continue to operate vaccinated cruises with our enhanced protocols. All our operations will follow these guidelines so we can maintain the confidence of the destinations we visit and deliver on our itineraries and guest experience. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we will adjust our protocols based on the advice of our medical and public health advisors.
Fully Vaccinated Guests (UPDATED 04/07/22)
Vaccinated cruises are available for guests who have received their final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the sailing day (not counting embarkation day) and have proof of vaccination.
Additionally, the CDC has strongly recommended that individuals obtain a COVID-19 booster vaccination, when eligible. Should the CDC definition of fully vaccinated evolve to require the booster shot, our policy will adapt accordingly. Consequently, we also strongly encourage all guests who are eligible to get their booster vaccine. It is also always possible that certain destinations could define a fully vaccinated guest as one who is current with a booster shot, and boosters may be required for specific voyages based on duration. Please review the updated CDC recommendations on the CDC’s website and our COVID-19 FAQs for information on which sailings require boosters.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Guests who are up to date with their vaccines may take their test within three days prior to sailing. Up to date means a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccinations, including any booster dose, when eligible. If a guest is fully vaccinated but not up to date with their vaccines (i.e., is eligible for a booster but has not received one), they must take their pre-cruise COVID-19 test within two days prior to sailing.
