I’m allergic to seafood >insert sad face< but at dinner it seems they had a lot of it. Which makes sense bc I’m in the middle of the ocean. I just wish they’d offer a little more!

Now this! This right here has my whole heart! The ladies who work with the kids on this ship are rare and kind. Beautiful souls. My youngest (5) just isn’t a people person but she loves these ladies. My oldest (8) didn’t ever wanna leave! I had to make her spend time with me! Even tho I don’t wanna do another tiny boat. I’d cruise this ship again just to have those ladies in my kids life again! Carnival owes them a raise. They treated my girls like they have known them their whole lives. Treated just like they were their own little sisters!❤️

I never smelled the sewage smell I’ve read so much about! I had low expectations of this cruise bc I had indeed read so many negative comments. But none of them seemed true or maybe just not in our case!

Ship tip

Don’t over think it. The only expectation you need is to have fun. Relax. Enjoy the company of who you are cruising with!

The ppl harassing you to buy has just gotten out of control! I’ve been here a couple times and each time it just gets worse! Beautiful island so if you can get past all of that you can enjoy a good day at the beach!
