The ship was decorated tastefully. It was not gawdy or tacky. I feel they do a good job with the upkeep of the ship.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I was never disappointed with the variety and quality of the food. My 15 year old son who is extremely fussy tried new foods and loved them all.

I wish they had more entertainment in the evening. However, the entertainment was very good! The games were great.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
My kids loved the program - however, my 12 year old son would have liked to have seen more activities earlier in the day - otherwise I would have rated excellent.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I found the staff to be very accommodating. Our room steward was fantastic! He always took care of our needs very quickly. They came in at least twice a day to clean. The cruise director was a blast!!! Great sense of humor!!

Ports Of Call

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
We went to Blue Lagoon just for the beach day. I wouldn't recommend going unless you go to the dolphin encounter and/or you have children. My kids loved it. It was just ok for husband and I.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
Beautiful - Carnival thought of every detail. It was wonderful.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Would have loved to have spent more time there. Oh well - I guess we have to go back there again.

Pros: The ports and food.

Cons: So many people!
