Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was great in the dining room. Absolutely loved the dining staff, so friendly and hardworking. Buffet food was good, it is a buffet so it is meant to appeal to a large number of people so it can be a bit bland. The Steakhouse was great and well worth the extra price.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Only attend the evening musical show twice since it was the same exact shows that we show last year on Carnival Fascination.

Service and Staff

My sister and I absolutely love Carnival staff. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and so hardworking. Love talking to the works and finding out where they are from

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The staff is constantly cleaning so the ship is really pretty clean for the amount of people that are on the ship, passengers can be complete slobs. Ship can be kind of confusing at times, having to go up to 5 and walk to the back just to go back down to 3 to get to the sea-day brunch.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The room was good. My sister and I shared a bed since the single beds are a bit hard to sleep in, although two singles don't equal a king.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida Did not visit port

We were only there long enough to board our ship

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

4 out of 5
The beach was great with nice sand and lost of chairs. Also it included lunch which is always a plus

La Romana, Dominican Republic

3 out of 5
The water was great but getting in and out of the water was a bit difficult for a lot of other people, especially for those that seem to be elderly and have issues walking. Also the beach we had our excursion at, booked through Carnival, had a lot of people constantly coming at us trying to sell us stuff and not wanting to take "no" for an answer.

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
This was our favorite port. The beach was amazing and the water was great since they had a break-wall to keep down the waves and keep the water clear. We had lunch at the restaurant which was a bit pricey but great.

Oranjestad, Aruba

3 out of 5
We had an excursion at DePalm beach. It was good and the food was great. There was an area designated for snorkeling which was ok but there wasn't much coral and was pretty bleached out and only a few types of fish to see.
