Review summary

We did enjoy the cruise. Cruising is what my kids like so we try to take one a year. No bad experiences and overall a great deal for the money.

Food and Dining

The food was excellent overall.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The ship was nice overall. I must say that I give a slight edge to Carnival for more activities especially for the younger kids.

All of the employees are great

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
They are super strict about the hand sanitizer (a good thing). They won't let you into the dining areas without a spritz of the gel.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The beds stink as far as comfort but they all have on every cruise. I think they need to switch mattresses sooner. It was very small.
