Review summary

I would recommend this ship and cruise team. They were awesome! Keven was very entertaining! 72% if the people were first time cruisers. Lots of children on this ship and they were well behaved. The children’s program seem to keep them busy.

No issues. Sign up for an early time to board the ship.

Ports of call

Jacksonville, Florida

Very easy on and off the ship.

Nassau, Bahamas

I would recommend going to Atlantas! Book your excursion through carnival. Do not take a cab. The cab driver changed another cruiser price on the way there. From 100$ to 200$ so the people got out of the cab half way to Antlantis.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Booked a hut on the beach. The hut came with soft drinks, water, 4 chairs, two floats, chips and salsa, fruit, veggies and snorkel gear. Great value!

Very easy! If you have an early flight you must get off the ship early.
