Review summary

Cruise was overall great. Carnival Hub App was very helpful and told us when and where things were happening. Everyone on the boat was helpful and so nice! I loved that the staff remembers your name, and how clean the boat is all the time. Definitely going on another cruise.

It was quick and easy, we had Faster to the Fun which was great cause we didn't need to wait in line and we were one of the first few people getting on and off the ship.

The dinner was great, the people serving were wonderful. One of the people sitting at my table was talking about wanting to see a magician and a server heard, and sent us one! It was great.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the Serenity Deck for the hot tubs and laying out, liked that it was quiet and relaxing without kids. Also enjoyed laying out by the pool on the main deck. We enjoyed the comedians every night and our time at the Casino.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward, Jandill, knew our names and introduced himself and he told us if we needed anything to call him. Very kind, and we loved the towel animals! I love how every where you go, there is always someone there cleaning up. We spent the night time mostly at the casino, so we got to know the casino dealers, and Menzi remembered my boyfriend's name after just being there one night. Other dealers that were great, Boba and Brandon, and there was this gentleman, looked like a manager (maybe his name was Erik?? I can't remember) but he bought us all drinks which was very nice! I loved that everyone knows your name. The staff is amazing. I am definitely missing some names, but everyone was great.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was good. Was not expecting the bed to be super comfortable but it most definitely was!! No windows, so I feel like I could have slept forever, thinking next time we might get a room with a window.

Ship tip

Get Faster to the Fun if you are eager to get on the ship and get off the ship. (This is only for the arrival day and the last day, no difference when getting off the Bahama ports). Also download the Carnival Hub App, it's great to see what's happening and when.

Ports of call

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

We went to a beach on this port, but we looked around first, I liked how people there weren't as pushy as the people at Nassau.

Nassau, Bahamas

Beautiful place, very pushy people though. Went to a pirate museum which was cool and walked to a beach.

Great with the Faster to the Fun. Very easy, one of the first people off the boat.
