Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Review SummaryThis was our first carinaval cruise. San Diego to Catalina Island and Enesenda. We had an outside cabin on the Riveria deck. Plenty of bath towels. Towels animals where adorable. Free movies 3 different ones everyday. The adult only deck area was really nice. The loungers had cushioned pads. There was a sun area and a shaded area. 2 hot tubs and an outdoor shower. You where able to get towels right there using your sail and sign card. Overall I can't wait to go again
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
The servers at the pool where not pushy about buying drinks, that was refreshing, not to be hounded to buy, buy, buy.
For an older ship it was in very good condition.
Cabin / Stateroom
The bathroom was a nice size plenty of room. Shower was big, nice to see a medicine cabinet to put our bath items in instead of cluttering up the counter.
The bed was fairly comfy, we asked our steward on the 2nd night to put a down comforter between the mattress and sheet to make it softer, it was great then. Slept really good. Plenty of closet space and hangers. It would have been nice to have a fridge though. Our room was always clean.
Ports of Call
Pros: All the open bar areas
Cons: No thermostat
