The on board activities.  Trivia contests, deck games, different types of clubs. Skip in the piano bar was incredible.  Liked the comfort food items located by the pool.

We love Carnival Cruise Lines - they've always treated us very well and these back-to-back cruises were an extension of the same. These, our first cruises with Carnival as Diamond members were truly wonderful.

I couldn't have asked for a better vacation! Everything about it, from the room, to the hosts, to the events, was top-notch and far exceeded my expectations!

This was my first cruise and I'm already planning my next one.  One of my favorite things was our waiter, Kim.  Not only was he very accommodating of my dietary needs, he went out of his way to make sure that I was happy.  He was funny, friendly, and kind.  He remembered all of our names, what we liked to drink, that my daughter preferred French fries with her steak when she forgot to order them.  I just can't say enough.  The entertainment was great.  All of the staff was great.  Half moon cay is the most beautiful place I have ever been.  I was able to just relax and enjoy myself.

Everything was wonderful at the elation except that the pool is a bit small with only one slide which was hard to accommodate the number of guests & kids on cruise, in addition the hot tubs were not all functioning at all times!

Other than that, service was excellent, food & entertainment were great,,,Will do it again for sure!LoveHappyHappy

As always Carnival met and exceeded our expectations. We always get our moneys worth and more. Can't ask for a better time/vacation for the money. The crew is always very friendly and helpful.

Carnival is always fun

Carnival Cruises has really upped their game as far as stateroom service and having rooms ready when you board.  It's nice to be able to drop off our stuff before heading up to the Lido Deck for a delicious lunch.  So much always going on to have fun with or a nice little nap in our room, whatever you choose. 

My only complaint,  our blue towels were not replaced after we used them.  Everything else was grand, food on Lido and in the dining room were all delicious.  We were paired with lovely people for dinner and the waitstaff were quite accommodating .  Lots of happy faces for a short, enjoyable, relaxing cruise.

I do not like it at all! Only service I was happy that the room service given by Anjar, the nice and clean guy did twoce or three times house cleaning and changing the linens and towels, bathroom cleaning too! Do not recommend anybody!

THE PEOPLE WAS MORE FRIENDLY THAN SOME OF THE STAFF. THE SECURITY GUYS  ON THE HALF MOON ISLAND THOUGHT WE WERE PRISONER GOING ON SHIP ( YELLING KEEP MOVING). THE FOOD IN DINNING AREA GOT MY HUSBAND SICK. AND DOOR HOST WAS TERRIBLE, MAYBE BECAUSE THEY COULDNT SPEAK ENGLISH.

anyone that goes to Progresso BIG TIP:::: ride the free shuttle to the town, they sell excursion there. SAME AS CARNIVAL and 1/3 the price we paid $35 for an all inclusive and upon arrival saw people from Carnival that said they paid $85. Every cruise on the ship can be bought on the free bus ride into town
