FAMILY AND FRIENDS CRUISE

Sail Date: March 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

SHIP ITSELF FOR IT TO BE REFURBISHED LESS THAN TWO YEARS AGO COULD HAVE USED MORE UPGRADES. ALTHOUGH IT IS A BIG SHIP.. IT FELT LIKE IT WAS LACKING IN THINGS TO DO..ONCE ABOARD THE SHIP YOU HAVE MINATURE GOLF, ONE BASKETBALL HOOP AND SHUFFLE BOARD...NOT ALOT COMPARED TO OTHER CRUISES LINES... I READ BEFORE MY CRUISE THEY SHOWED SPORTING EVENTS ON THE BIG SCREEN BY THE POOL.. WELL FOR FOUR NIGHTS THEY NEVER SHOWED A SINGLE NBA, COLLEGE OR ANY TYPE OF SPORTING EVENT.. REALLY THEY SHOWED A FEW MOVIES THAT'S IT... THE SHOWS WEREN'T EVEN AS GOOD AS I'VE SEEN BEFORE ON CARNIVAL..SURE THEY'RE OTHER THING TO DO SUCH AS SING ALONG BAR-BOO!! HAIRY CHEST CONTEST-BOO!! AND OF COURSE BINGO.. THESE ARE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE THE BEGINING OF CRUISING. FOR INSTANCE THE CARNIVAL FANTASY WHICH IS MUCH OLDER GOT A NEW WATERPARK, THE DESTINY DID NOT..NOT TO MENTION THE FUNKY SMELL NEAR THE DINING ROOM ON DECK THREE.. EVERYONE WAS TALKING ABOUT IT.. JUST NOT THAT GREAT.. I'M SURE THE NEWER SHIPS HAVE MORE THINGS TO DO.. BUT CARNIVAL WILL NEVER BE COMPARED TO ROYAL OR EVEN NCL NOW..

Pros: BEING WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS

Cons: WEATHER AND ACTIVITIES
