Accommodation Details

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 Know

Pricing is based on Double Occupancy. Roommate Matching is offered. If you want to be matched with another member, please enter “Roommate Requested” in the notes to the Organizer. If a roommate is not able to be assigned, your final invoice will be adjusted to add on the single supplemental fee.

Single Occupancy is available at an additional cost.

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

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.

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.

Covid-19 Information

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.

Deposit Info

All roommates paying their own deposit must submit their deposit within 24 hours of one another in order to be secured on the same reservation.   

One person will be named the primary client on the booking but all guests sharing the same registration will be equally responsible for paying the balance. One person can be the primary payee, however, you will need to indicate in the notes to your agent how payments are to be allocated. 

COVID-19 Liability Release Waiver

Due to the 2019-2022 outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Art N Soul Escapes is taking extra precautions with the care of every client to include health history review and enhanced social distancing procedures in compliance with CDC guidance.

Hello, My name is Nicole; owner of Art N Soul Escapes Travel Agency. I've been in the travel industry for over a decade and the event planning industry for the past 14 years. My passions are traveling and planning vacations. My love for travel has taken me to Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, Africa, Asia, and Russia to name a few. I'm a firm believer that travel doesn't have to break the bank. Let me help you take the guess work out of so many options to choose from, and turn your dreams into a reality. No group is too big or small.


Had an amazing and awesome time. The trip was very well planned and put together. Enjoyed the amazing group of women and the travel agent Nicole was fun throughout the trip. I really enjoyed Thailand it was beautiful and the food was great. This was my first time traveling with this group and I can honestly say it won’t be my last. Looking forward to traveling with them again everything was amazing

This adventure was one for the books! This was a fantastic experience as usual with Art n Soul. Nikki is a top notch agent, and will make sure your travel experience is excellent. The bookings and excursions were very well planned to get the most out of the trip. Thailand had so much to do and see, and we tried to fit it all into our week. I definitely look forward to the next adventure.

Ruthie, Thank you so much for the glowing review. It was good to have you on one of our adventures again. Agreed--there is definitely a lot to see in a short time. And we hope that the long plane ride was worth it. Thanks for your continued support.

I wish I could give this trip 10 stars! I really enjoyed my family. Our cabin was a great size, my son enjoyed camp ocean and meeting new friends! Art N Soul Escapes welcomed us with chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of Champagne. I highly recommend booking with them as they are very professional and we didn’t even have to call them with any issues. Lol Thanks for helping our family plan our annual trip!

We had a great time on the cruise! It was just what we needed to connect with family and have fun. Nikki was the perfect agent as she worked tirelessly to ensure everything was setup correctly. Never failing to answer any question no matter how simple or redundant. Her patience is superb! We’re already looking forward to planning another trip!

Thanks DeShana! I'm so honored that you selected me as your agent for your family trip. I'm overjoyed that you could put your energy into your family, and leave the planning to us. I look forward to working with you all again.

I had a great time with the group I traveled with to Greece. I will remember the special ladies who were absolutely helpful every step of the way. There were lots of things to do, the food was great, and there was enough free to explore on your own! Looking forward to traveling with them again.
By Vicki L D for Glamorous Greece on Jun 14, 2023
Thank you Vicki! We enjoyed having you on the trip as well. Don't be a stranger.

I’ve used Art N Soul Escapes for small getaways as well as for grand vacays and I’ve always been satisfied. One of the main reasons I love this agency is because the agents are well-traveled and I think it’s important to work with a team that has experience with seeing the world. It doesn’t matter if you are going on a domestic or international trip, a solo vacay or family reunion Art N Soul Escapes is the best travel agency to use!! #BookWithArtNSoulEscapes

I had wonderful experiences with Art N Soul Escapes Travel Agency. This agency has planned five trips for me. And, I continue to use this agency because I always have positive experiences. From the prompt responses to my questions to the great accommodations and best of all the budget friendly payments arrangements. I would recommend Art N Soul Escapes Travel Agency for anybody who wants to have an experience vs. just another trip.
