Definitely a FUN SHIP, met all expectations. This was our first cruise. Carnival did an EXCELLENT job at changing our sail port in leu of the swine flu being in Mexico. Instead we went to NASSAU BAHAMAS, trust me i was not mad AT ALL! In fact I feel they really up"ed their ratings with that change. I feel a different cruise most likely would have just kept us on sea. GO CARNIVAL!! WOO HOO!!!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Me, I loved the food. My husband, well... he wasn't too happy with the selection since we are not pork eaters, they had no alternatives for him at breakfast.


5 out of 5
There was so much to do i felt like i needed to be two people in one. There were loads of things to do.. especially the days just at sea, i mean they really kicked it up with activities.. night shows, casino, movies, raffles you name it they had it!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We're big on customer service and i must say the staff of the ship was SUPER!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
At first look i felt a bit cheated since they were painting the ship as we were boarding BUT... it surely gleamed as we was sailing.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our room was just as we saw online with the 360 view. Loved the balcony (worth the extra money BOOK IT!) the privacy really made the difference.

Pros: Customer Service

Cons: Food selection can stand to be worked on.
