My wife and I have chosen Carnival for our cruise vacations for the past five years because we thought of them as truly a value.

This cruise however, not so much. We paid almos $400.00 to upgrade to an extended balcony stateroom which turned out to be the smallest stateroom we have ever cruised in. As for the balcony, the view was less than spectactular and it was extended to accommodate the steel bulkhead protruding into the available space. I would not recommend this upgrade for ant price!

Cabin / Stateroom
Too small, no storage sofa, no mini fridge, no hairdryer and no beach towels.
Could not get enough of Punchline lounge-great!
Food and Dining
Dining room staff worked really hard and the food was very good.
Charleston, South Carolina
These folks are professional and great to be around. This is a small port, very well run!
Nassau, Bahamas
We love Nassau. This time we rented tour buggies from J&S Scooters to tour the island and had a blast, it was the highlight of this cruise.


Lower expectations, this ship was renovated in 2014 and not very well done, rust was visible every where and painted over massive areas of old paint looked cheap. I got the impression that this vessel was being used as a training ship for staff members.
