Review summary

Had a fantastic time! I’m so addicted to cruises I may need a support group. This was my folks first cruise and they had a blast! My fiancé and I took them on this one to see if they liked it so we could get married on a ship in the near future (“near future” means to my fiancé in the next few months...just so she can book us another cruise lol). Anyway they loved it and we are in the process of booking another carnival adventure before the end of the year, so I can make an honest woman out of her 🤣.

Embarkation

Smooth sailing. New process is they take your pic right from your passport. On the ship in under 20 mins.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Julio and Carlos in the main dining room were amazing! Knew exactly what we wanted and how we wanted it from the first day! My mom is on a very strict nutritious diet and Julio brought her the menu for the following day, so she could modify it to her dietary needs (no cheese, no this no that). Totally above and beyond and absolutely awesome!!

Ship Quality

I liked the design. I’m over everyone saying “she’s an old ship, and is showing age”. I’m on a boat in the middle of the ocean and those nitpickers are back at work.

Cabin / Stateroom

Clean and kept that way. “B” was like a magician...I’d wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and when I returned to the bed the room was clean and a towel animal was on my pillow.

Port was great!! A little tip...only dead fish go with the flow!! Everyone gets off the water taxis and they all go left. Make a right!! Walk over the little bridge and enjoy Paradise! a beautiful reef to snorkel, bar staff bringing drinks whenever needed, no crowds and the same food they set up on the other side with a 1/3 of the line.

Grand Turk Island

It’s pretty cut and dry. Either carry your own 💩 off or just get some luggage tags and chill till you are called.
