Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was great from the fine dining to the pizza stand!


5 out of 5
The shows were top notch, as was the Destiny band - they were fantastic! Had fun at the disco. Participated in fun and games on the pool deck. Our sides still hurt from laughing so much.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
We hardly saw any children, so they must really keep them occupied!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The crew was great. They knew our names and room number the first day which made us feel super special.

Cabin / Stateroom

We were upgraded to a porthole room which was alright until we were woken to loud sounds. Once we found out it was the waves hitting the front of the ship we were fine and just giggled about it.

An awesome day spent on a white sand beach with clear aqua water. Postcard perfect.
Don't Miss: Swimming at the beautiful beach

Nassau, Bahamas

1 out of 5
Atlantis was horrible unless you are into endless hiking. Don't bring cash cuz they only take credit cards (now that is a comfortable feeling!) Also NOT handicap accessible. Rude help. We could not get out of there and back to the ship fast enough! Nassau is a dump. Atlantis is hours of walking. Stay on the ship and relax and have fun. No fault of Carnival - they were great!
Don't Miss: Don't miss a great day hanging out on the ship

Pros: Fun aboard the ship

Cons: Atlantis on Nassau
