Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Buffet food was not good . Main dining room was ok. Guys burger was good deli was good pizza was ok to good. We did the stake house one night . The food was good to great but the service was some of the worst service I have ever had. Had to ask 3-4 times for everything. More butter took 3 ask and took 10 min. Drink refill 4 asks and 10-15 minutes. After dinner coffee 3 times and took 10-15 minutes. Seem like they bought things out every 10-15 minutes and didn’t care what you wanted or when. Don’t spend the $38 each .

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Not many pools and were small. Activities were meh.if you like load music and drunks on main deck this is the cruis line for you.

Entertainment

Did some was ok

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The waiters in main dining was great. Room steward was great. Staff at pizza,deli and half the bars acted like they were doing you a favor by getting you food or drink. Staff at guys was much better.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Was clean and layout was ok.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was 1046 every time I enter that switches to 1205 Standard cabin nothing great nothing bad. Shower drain slow. By the end of your shower would be ankle deep.

Ship tip

Ship is starting to get old would find a newer ship. This was our carnival cruise and was really not our style. If you want a party ship where half the people have bought the all the booze you can drink and you can tell. Then carnival is for you.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

Did the big zip line. There were 5 or 6 cruise ships in port this day. Waited 2 and a half hour in the sun to with not were to sit to go down the big zip line. It was ok they have brakes so you don’t really go the fast

Basseterre, St. Kitts

3 out of 5
Had been here before. Did so shopping walked around port area. Was ok

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
Was clean and felt safe. Did see any hurricane damage at all. Walked to fort about a mile away and it was free day. So was free to get in and walk around. Think it normally cost $10 or so. If I would have had to pay it would have been worth it.

Grand Turk Island

3 out of 5
Was a beach day for us. Would have been great if there wasn’t 3000 other people there. Chairs were4-5 deep on beach. Too many people for me.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Whole lot of people and lots of luggage but went well.
