The food was mediocre. It’s like everything was just ok.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
When our first port was canceled the pool was drained and being worked on. I liked the water slides.

They were ok.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
I had the best room stewardess ever. She was fantastic! The other people on this ship weren’t very nice, they were over our trip, and wanted us off the boat.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
The ship itself was designed and laid out beautifully, however the mechanical issues we experienced the entire time is enough to make me not wanna cruise carnival again.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
The door in this suite to the balancing slammed open and shut all night long the first night, then it took 3 different times to get it fixed. Other than that the room was good.

Ship tip

Pick another ship!
