Review summary

For our first time cruising, it was a great experience and we had decided that we will cruise again. The staff on the ship were great, very friendly, approachable and willing to help. The food at the Steakhouse restaurant was awesome. Didn't really care for the food selection at the buffet and the assigned seating dining rooms. We found our food was brought to the table either food or barely warm. 


Due to bad weather, the captain was able to dirvert us to another port instead of having 4 days at sea. This jesture by him was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed the excursions at the 4 ports we visited and can't wait to go back to two of the ports on a future vacation.

Friends who have cruised before told us not to get an aft room. We loved our room and would look to cruise with an aft room in the future.

Ship tip

Get the Carnival Hub app to track your expenses onboard. If you are tipping the bartender for drinks and you intend on tipping the room steward and the dining room waiters, don't pay the suggested gratuities. Carnival will move it from your account. Photos are priced individually not as a package.
