Review summary

I have to ask myself why we didn't do a cruise vacation sooner. Everything was outstanding, I cannot think of one area of this cruise that was lacking. Our cabin was clean and well appointed, the shows were great, and the ports of call were wonderful as well. As far as the crew of the ship, they were all wonderful, always addressed by name, and greeted with a smile. Everyone was always eager to help! Additionally we had our young son, and he could not wait to go to camp each day. Needless to say, Camp Ocean was great and the staff was second to none. The food was excellent, always fresh, and the dining staff was wonderful. I am sure I left something out, but all and all this was just an amazing trip. I'll definitely be doing another cruise on Carnival in the near future.
