Great first cruise!

Sail Date: February 16, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was my first cruise, and I loved it! The staff were all very friendly and remembered our names. The ship is one of carnivals smaller ships, but it was still very large and offered a lot of entertainment. The food was okay. Some nights it was very good and others it was just okay. If you like to drink, I suggest getting the drink card. It seems like a lot of money and drinks at first, but you will get your money's worth. It was only $50 a day, and after a few drinks you're already at $50. You can also get soft drinks with the card and receive discounts on bottled water.
