These were mostly good..only thing not enjoyable was "Flicks". The singing was too much yelling for my taste. The other shows were great. The entertainment carried over to the lobby where the real fun began... Gary the cruise director was one of the top two in the Carnival fleet we have seen. The other being the Rev Dr E. They are the 2 best ever!!!

Cabin / Stateroom

Wonderful interior cabin.....clean,quiet,and dark. We asked for a fan, so we had a lot of moving air. We will ask for a fan from now on.

Ship tip

Go with an open mind and don't sweat the small stuff.😊

Ports of call

Have been there plenty of times

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
This was about the 20th time there. This time we found a little off the beaten path bar within walking distance with cold beer and great chips and queso. Had a great time.

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

5 out of 5
We always go to a bar and grill right off the bus. Go thru the little shops to a closed off street area to The Genuine.....ask for Danny( not his real name). Always a good time....music and food and drinks.
