7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Sail Date: June 10, 2012 Cabin Type: Suite Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 5 years ago
Overall, my husband and I had an awesome time on our honeymoon. It was the first cruise either of us had been on.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
The Point Steakhouse was the only food on the ship that was really note-worthy. The people at the sushi bar were very annoyed when my husband asked for more than 3 pieces of sushi, which we did not appreciate. Not much variety in food offered. The majority of the free food was a step up from hospital quality cuisine.

The entertainment options were not amazing; the only thing that was overly consistent was the Casino. On-board trivia and games were very difficult as no one can play bean bag toss when there are only 2 boards and 200 people...not fun or relaxing at all. Even when you wanted to spend time in your room, all of the channels were "Carnival Cruise Channels" and you had nothing to watch but the 3 "complimentary movies." Please get rid of those crappy channels; no one is watching them.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
The staff were amazing! The always made sure that you were comfortable and made sure that all of your needs were met. It would have been nice though if more of the staff had English as a first language as we could not understand many of the staff members.

The ship we very nice. The size of the ship is good, but I feel that the number of occupants made the ship feel very crowded, especially when it came to time to leave the ship when porting. I overheard many guests worrying about how an emergency evacuation would actually work because there are far too many people. Also, the smell of smoke is very overwhelming in the Casino; might want to work on your air filtration system.
Cabin / Stateroom

Our state room was very nice! The size was nice for a suite and the balcony was very nice for the evenings. The only thing that bothered my was that the picture online of the suite showed a flat screen television and we arrived to find a Zenith from 30 years ago that was too hard to see. If your are going to put a flat screen in the picture, have one.
Pros: The view, the courtesy of the staff
Cons: Not enough to do for the amount of people on board, cuisine could use tweeking, rooms in pictures do not depict actual rooms
