Review summary

We enjoyed the trip, and have already booked a trip for next year. We look forward to sailing with Carnival again. The trip gave my husband and myself a new look on our marriage. We sat and talked about how we should have done this sooner, but with small children and financial responsibilities we just could never swing the expense. So now that our kids are in college we have a lot of time for us and this cruise really help us renew what is important in our marriage, time for our self.

The main dining room was wonderful, but the buffet are certain times of the night it got a little slim pickings.

Imagination Dining Room

5 out of 5

The swanky interior was so nice and chairs were comfortable. My husband and I feed each other cause we both ordered different things to share. I can say that I have had fine dining.

As me and my husband made our way around the ship, we always seen someone cleaning. The stairwell was vacuumed and paper of any kind.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This was our first cruise so we didn't no what to expect. The window was wide so we could sit on the side of the bed and look at the water. We rally enjoyed our room even when we had a night of rough seas.

Ship tip

Try and make as many of the shows as possible cause you will be in for a treat. Enjoy
