The cruise was definitely downgraded compare to my previous cruises. I wouldn't be booking with Carnival again. The ports we visited were so poor and packed with the souvenir shops. There was nothing to see, and I didn't go there to do shopping. All I wanted ,was to see the cities and have some time by the ocean.

This ship and cruise line is definitely good for a couple in college or a family. Definitely not top-tier when it comes to cruises, but it was great experience considering how cheap it was.

Good experience for kids but not the best for me. Maybe I'll try another ship next time. The port was convenient to my home and the cruise was a great value but left a lot to be desired.

We didn't have trouble with motion sickness surprisingly but we choose to stay at the bottom of the ship. Now that we know it isn't a issue we will try for a suite next time. Oh, when you get a king size bed; realized that means 2 twins pushed together so you have a line down the bed.

Experience all the activities and shows possible. Have a few days to rest up from your cruise when you return. Do NOT go dieting. Be prepared to gain a few pounds; however, you will lose it easily when you return home eating normal again.

Figure out where and what time your meals are served for some really good food. Plan your excursions so you don't feel rushed. Pick your room on above or below the action preferably floor six. Our one of the sites above the Lido deck
