Review summary

Generally the cruise was pleasant and relaxing. However, the clientele leaves much to be desired. Some were rude and obnoxious. If you’re an older adult looking for a more sophisticated cruising experience, Carnival isn’t the cruise line for you.

Food and Dining

Dinner was sub-par in the main dining room. Meals were barely warm and portions were small. The Lido deck buffet was good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guy’s Burgers and Guy’s BBQ were sub-par. All they have is his name.

Don’t waste your time eating here. The food was barely warm and portions were small. You’re better off eating at Lido Marketplace.

Onboard Activities

Pools were too crowded so I didn’t get in. For the size of the ship and the number of guests it can carry, the main pool was way too small. There wasn’t a fitness center, just some jungle gym contraptions throw together on the aft top deck.

The DJ’s were mediocre. The music they spin pretty much only caters to millennials. I’m giving the 5-star rating to a wonderful violin trio that played every night. Sky Breeze. They weren’t the musical highlight.

Boring. We didn’t book an excursion but the feedback I got from others is that it wasn’t all that.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

I needed to get contact lens solution and the shopping area had a big drug store.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Simply beautiful in spite of the damage done by the hurricanes.

Grand Turk Island

The beach experience was poor. More rocks and huge boulders on the beach than white sand. The shopping is great!
