Extremely Suprised

Sail Date: August 24, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

A beautiful new ship with lots of accomidations. Nice staff and rooms. Would recommend a balcony room which was enjoyable sitting outside and enjoying the ride. The food wasn't spectacular but definately good for the price of the cruise. First time on a carnival cruise and was expecting less but i was thrilled with the outcome. I believe newer is better. Would definately take Carnival again for a family with kids and if you are trying to save some money. Would definatly take another Carnival Cruise while the kids are still young.

Destinations and Excursions
Port Canaveral, Florida
where we boarded, wouldn't want it to be a destination to stop.
Nassau, Bahamas
was asked to take a 20 minute tour on a horse carriage as soon as we got off and it was worth the money.100.00/4 people
San Juan, Puerto Rico
really enjoyed san juan, take the free outdoor bus when you get off the ship, takes you all around san juan in 30 minutes and then you can get off and shop.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
beware of artistic&/or Lucky jewlers, scammers.
Grand Turk Island
not much to do except enjoy the pool, shopping and beach right off the boat, a relaxing day.


Try the pasta bar at least once for lunch, it's very good. Favorite Frozen drink was the mocha chocolate, yummy. If anyone in your family has food allergies, make them aware of it because the restaurants for dinner are extremely thorough and will visit with you before dinner to go over your meal. Trisna who was in charge when we sailed was amazing with keeping my son's food safe.
