Fun but overcrowded with terrible disembarkation

Sail Date: July 24, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

While the cruise was enjoyable (and the excursions especially fun - we booked two through Carnival and one through ), the trip felt as if there were too many people on the boat. We constantly were waiting in lines and the disembarkation process was a terrible, half-day experience that resulted in some members of our party almost missing their flight. Everything you buy (at least the drinks) also have an automatic 15% gratuity, while the tips are automatically added to your account, removing the option of actually choosing whether and how much to tip.ย 

Cabin / Stateroom Cabin was roomy and the two bathrooms was a nice touch.

Some were wonderful. Some were average. Some were not that great.

Don't check your bags when planning to disembark.
