Cruise was nice. Just returned two weeks after a 7 day cruise to Mexico on another cruise line. The crew on Carnival was not as concerned about germs as on the other ship. It seemed Norwegian went over board on cleaning your hands and Carnival was under concerned. Food seemed a little better on Norwegian.

Entertainment was similar. Better comedy on Carnival. Carnival had free use of steam rooms while Norwegian's was in a spa package that you had to purchase.

Key West is always nice, Freeport was NOT very attractive, Nassau was expensive and a taxi fee to get to Paradise Island(very expensive). Won't do this cruise again

Debarkation was total screw up. Had to carry luggage up stairs. Nobody was giving directions on where to go. Even though we were off in an hour.

When you leave you have to pick up your alcohol on another deck. They used to put in your stateroom the night before, but not now.. Also no one telling you where to find it. At least Norwegian brings it to you cabin door.




Cabin / Stateroom
Adequate. Nice location in middle of ship easy access to elevators and stairs. Room steward nice. Didn't bring us ice everyday, as we requested, though.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was longer than expected, maybe because this is a large ship.
Debarkation terrible.
Ship Quality
Crew didn't seemed too concerned about germs.
The staff in the restaurants were on the ball and cleaned your table immediately.

Only ate in main dining rooms three times.
Average food. Food at some of the kiosks was better.
New Orleans, Louisiana
Key West, Florida
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island Pass on this place. You dock by a refinery. Lovely view. LOL Stay on the ship.
Nassau, Bahamas
Beautiful and expensive.


Large ship, heard in was going in for a refit this summer. Some parts outdated.
