Our Steward, DeNang, was the best part of the trip.

Ship Quality

It is an old boat, but was well maintained for its age.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
A few more 110 outlets would have made life a lot easier.

Ship tip

Bring 12 pack of soft drinks, order water on board, bring a power strip to use with the 1 110 outlet for charging phones and devices.

Enjoyed parasailing

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

3 out of 5
The cancellation of the snorkel trip by Carnival was a "bummer." Information about the length of the beach and that their are clam shells all along the beach would reduce crowding near the information booth.


5 out of 5
Easy and close to the parking. Having someone there that could jump our car due to a dead battery was "GREAT!"
