Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Guy’s Burger excellent; everything else average. Limited choices; Offer “fried chicken” EVERDAY!

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Scavenger Hunt should be a “Scavenger Hunt” (hunting for items), rather than a sexual escapade that encourages homosexuality.


4 out of 5
Need African American singers when featuring Motown/R&B.

Children's Programs

Not enough to do.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The waiters, room stewards works extremely hard. I hope Carnival is paying them a living wage, rather than minimal wage or less.
