Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The main dining room and buffets were clean, had variety, and delicious.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I mostly know about the pool deck. It was staffed adequately and was fun.


5 out of 5
The shows were great. I did not care for the comedians.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
My grandson begged to go the night owls every night. My niece chose to go the kid's club rather than the pool everyday.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was very friendly. I enjoyed interacting with them. While being friendly they were also professional.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I was clean. The layout is similar to other Carnival ships.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was a little crowded because there was 5 of us. However, it was clean and the room steward took great care of us.

Ship tip

Be ready to turn up and have fun. This ship lives up to the motto "The Fun Ship"

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We took a taxi around town and went to the Queen's staircase. I enjoyed learning about the history and culture of the Island.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

4 out of 5
We did not do an excursion. We did get off the ship and shopped a little. The weather was windy and cool but Carnival cannot control that.


3 out of 5
It took a long time to get through customs. For some reason they only had one line open.
