was the most excellent dinning I have every done the staff was great seating changed every time we went so we got different view each time staff stayed pretty on top of things food was phenomenal, and the desert was mouth watering and best tasting I have ever had any where, and I didn't have to wait no more than 20 min if that for a table when your on the any time to eat schedule

Spa Carnival

Just make sure when you make your reservation that you understand what you are getting done so you have no misunderstandings and get more than your supposed to

Resort Style Pool

3 out of 5

Thought pool would be bigger or have more than one especially with how many people are on a cruise at a time

I did the Dolphin excursion what i hated is that there was no info ahead of time what the coast of pics would be so didnt have enough on hand to buy them so lost a great memory and the trainer had an attitude...
