A fitness center and many sports areas will keep you active while at sea.
The Carnival Freedom’s fitness center is rather compact for a ship of its size, but it comes well equipped with treadmills, free weights and other circuit machines. A handful of basic classes focused on such things as an abdominal workout and stretching are free for anyone. More advanced instructional classes in yoga and Pilates can be attended for $12 per person. There also is a three-class “boot camp” available for $120 per person, personal training sessions for $85, and a nutritional consultant available as well.
Outside on deck 12, right at mid ship, you will find a nine-hole miniature golf course titled Putterific Mini-Golf that circles the ship’s funnel. The grass may be fake, but the view is spectacular. Pick up your putter and your colorful ball at the first hole, accessible through the sports deck on deck 11.
The Sports Deck on deck 11 has a half-size basketball court and a volleyball net.
Shuffleboard courts are located on both sides of deck 3, and on deck 12 behind the funnel.
Forward on deck 12, just before Camp Carnival, is one of America’s and China’s favorite pastimes: Ping Pong.
Running around the Sports Deck on deck 11 is the jogging track. It’s a bit like a hamster wheel, but passengers seem to have fun with it.
Not far from the Stressless pool is an oversized chess board.
