Review summary

Very disappointing ship. Have been on 19 cruises, over half of them Carnival and this was the only ship we were completely disappointed in.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
WONDERFUL!!!! This was the absolute fastest, smoothest embarkation we have ever had. We were to embark at 12:00-12:30 and were on time and on the ship be 12:15

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Buffets were ok. About the same as all of the ships we have been on. The lunch option above the lido buffet in the Captain's Italian restaurant was wonderful! The main dining was very short of adequate. My friend had fried chicken one evening and it was not cooked thoroughly. the creme brulee one night was super sweet and very grainy tasting. We both had the escargo appetizer one evening along with others at out table, and no one could eat it as they were baked in a shallow ramiken and like hot, hard rocks when we got them. We did not eat in the specialty restaurants. We also never once saw or met out Maitre d' and there were many nights the dining room was not half filled that he could have mingled with guests as we did also input gratuities for him.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Pools were very full with young people, along with all of the jacuzzi's which they are not suppose to be in. {There are even signs to that effect. Which parents of the children and security pays no attention}

Entertainment

1 out of 5
There was a main room show. Not good. We went to the piano bar, and no piano player.

Children's Programs

no children

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
You have to choose either morning or evening for room stewards. As they only do the rooms once a day (which was just fine for us) but when they did do the room, coffee cups and spoons, dirty glasses and such, that we kept together for them were left. Our evening waiter was very helpful and accomidating, and we also saw him daily in the breakfast buffet.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
They were very average. It seemed very much like it was tired looking

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
It was very nice. It is the same type of room we always get as we are generally not in the room much. I do like the fact that Carnival has 3 closets in the room, as my best friend and I both take clothing and necessities to need the space

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

It was just our embarking and debarking location. we did not stay.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

3 out of 5
Did not do an excursion. Most are very expensive, or have very extensive drinking. We did our own walking around and enjoyed it.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

4 out of 5

No excursions. Again did our own walking shopping tour.

Grand Turk Island

2 out of 5
Very disappointing. We had been here before and enjoyed a bus tour and the sights greatly. This time we did our own tour and when asked to take us down town. to shop, we were dropped off at a building of 3 huts with junk in them. This was literally their downtown

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
We had no problems. It is always sometimes lengthy. but we were comfortable. Once they called our group, we were off of the ship and loaded up on our shuttle within about 25 minutes.
