Review summary

This cruise was hands down the best cruise I've been on. I will definitely cruise with carnival again and recommend others to. I think 7 days is perfect to take advantage of what the boat has to offer enjoying the entertainment and activities. Food was appetizing, boat was clean and staff was very friendly and pleasant.

Embarkation

Carnival Cruise is truly the best, they make your cruise experience very easy and a breeze. Once arriving to the port all the signs were big and easy to read and follow, everything moved swiftly.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
No complaint at all. The food was great and loving the variety. At first I was thinking 7 days I'm going to get tired of the food but this wasn't the case. Eating in the dining room or the buffet plenty of options and don't forget you can order more than one thing off the menu. Eating at the buffet at times the lines were pretty long especially waiting at the omelet station but it wasn't that bad, but maybe they could have 4 stations.

Guy's Burger Joint

5 out of 5

I'm not sure what he puts in his burger meat but those burgers are hands down the best burger that I have tasted. We literally had a burger a day. Depending on the time of day you went the fries was salty but they were still delicious. I told myself that I was going to find Guy's Burger Joint when I got home it was that good.

Sapphire Dining Room

5 out of 5

Coming together for dinner in the evening was always refreshing. Seeing everyone dressed and enjoying themselves in a upscale restaurant was nice. Our waiter and servers were great, I loved how they remembered our name and things we liked or ordered frequently. The nightly entertainment was also fun seeing everyone up dancing and having a good time. Eating here I got to try specialty foods that I wouldn't normally try and I appreciated that they allow you to order more than one entrée because they give you so many enticing choices that you just want to try them all.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We pretty much took advantage of everything the ship had to offer. From the fitness center, to the pool/waterslides, casino,miniature golf and lets not forget about the adult only retreat(thank you for allowing us to a little slice of heaven).

Entertainment

5 out of 5
I enjoyed all the shows and all the performers energy level making sure guest really enjoyed themselves. There is literally always something to do on the boat. The DJ and live singer was awesome there was always something to jam to while up on the lido deck. We watched the comedy shows, games shows as well as the evening movies.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
What would we do without the kid's club(for those of us that have kids). The hours work great and although there is a small fee for late hours, it was fine. At times my child did not want to leave, they have themed days/nights and my daughter always came back with the picture or something they made. I appreciate the workers at the kids club, they keep the kids entertained while teaching them at the same time. I also like how the kids entertainment was adult friendly, and Dr. Seuss onboard was a great addition for the kids.

Camp Ocean

5 out of 5

Camp Ocean was great and always had something fun and entertaining planned for the kids. Themes nights was a great idea allowing the kids to have fun while learning at the same time. My daughter came back with painting's, her face painted, treasure boxes and all sorts of things, she really enjoyed herself there.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
No complaints about the service at all, from the waiters, room stewards and other ship personnel everyone made it their business to make sure we enjoyed ourselves not having to worry about anything. All the staff was pleasant and helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ships layout and designs was great, everything was easy to find and accessible. Walking from one end of the ship to others was convenient and quick. The ship was clean and well-maintained I did not see anything to complain about.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I stayed in interior room with a 4yr old and everything was fine, the only complaint is they need to have a clock, I understand the time changes while traveling but I never knew what time it was while in my room. Room stewards very nice and always there when I needed anything.

Ship tip

Overall this is a great and entertaining ship to travel on. I do ask that guest please think about the wait staff and stewards they work long hard hours to make sure we enjoy our vacation when leaving a tip, although it is their job many are away from family and just trying to make a living. Remember to bring a large cup, although they have unlimited lemonade and iced tea they cups are pretty small, it will save you a few trips back and forth. Most importantly have fun and just enjoy yourself.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas Did not visit port

Time wise when we got to the port we went straight onboard.

Montego Bay, Jamaica

3 out of 5
Little shopping area on this port, staff was not very friendly when trying to get advice. Found out later that when you get to the port and walk out the gates to the street cabs were friendlier although you cant trust everyone. I did not do any excursions.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Nice shopping along the port and great views. I did not do any excursions just walked along the port taking pictures.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Nice and colorful port, everyone trying to get you to buy something given you cheaper rates. Sat at the local restaurant and had lunch. I did not do an excursion.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Everything was smooth leaving the ship and getting luggage. Transportation was prearranged so that wasn't even a problem.
