Review Summary

I understand the ship is older but I would have like more than one small pool and two luke warm hot tubs on the mid deck. Also, I couldn't really relax and have peace of mind while children were still running and roaming about after midnight every night. The food wasn't that tasteful as it was hard to finish my dinners the first few nights. However, I enjoyed the amount of bars minus the one drink per 5 minute rule. Kinda overkill when you want a shot and then a drink on vacation. The club had good music and a nice vibe and the staterooms were a decent size for two people. Room service was great and the hospitality couldn't have been better. Carnival should add more events for young adults and also a bigger space for 21 and older to enjoy rather then just the back of the ship with two scalding hot-hot tubs. Nassua was not like the pictures and kinda ghetto looking besides the beautiful water and Half Moon Cay owned by Carnival was definitely worth seeing again, other than not being able to rent jet ski's. I'm comparing this cruise to the Princess cruise ships I've been on prior, so if I would recommend this cruise for future customers I'd say save your money and go Princess. You'll have a much better time. 

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

Food wasn't worth dying for. The lasagne on the last night was about the only thing I enjoyed.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
I danced, I swam, and played at the casino. More activities would of been nice though. Rock climbing walls, basketball hoops, or more waterworks would of been nice.

Ship Quality

Elevators sounded like they were on their last leg. Otherwise can't complain with how old the ship was.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin had enough space for two and room service took great care of us!
