Designed by Carnival’s award-winning architect Joe Farcus, the 110,000-ton Carnival Freedom features an interior design theme that takes guests on a journey through the centuries by decade.

Highlights include the ship’s Victorian show lounge named after Britain’s Queen Victoria and designed to evoke theaters in London’s West End with ornate moldings, fancy marble and gold leaf; Studio 70 dance club, which recreates the ambiance of the famed Studio 54 disco in New York with black interior, spinning mirror balls hanging from the ceiling, and pulsating lights; and Player’s Sports Bar, which shines with chrome, sports medallions and memorabilia of the1950s.
