Dance all night at Diamonds Are Forever, or have a quiet evening at Tara. Rich tapestries and stone elephants create an exotic ambience in the Passage to India Lounge. Feast on everything from lobster to Duck a L'orange at the splashy Coconut Grove Bar and Grill or the elegant Imagination Dining Room. Life-sized figures of Hollywood stars of bygone days like Marilyn, Bette, and Clark create once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities.

We had a nice time. by MissAmandaB

/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had a smooth seven day sailing, with perfect weather and we visited a total of 6 ports. This alone made this vacation dream-worthy. There is nothing more wonderful and calming than the smooth sands and calm waters of the Caribbean Sea. Onboard the ship, we enjoyed the Broadway style shows in the early evening and some downright vulgar comedy late at night. We thought the food options were good, albeit that dining on this cruise always came with a long line or a long wait. This was best described as a Latin Cruise, with so many of cruisers coming from Puerto Rico themselves. Most everybody on the cruise ship were fluent in Spanish and English and most of the entertainment and announcements were conducted in both languages. Music and dance parties were abundant and I have to give it to the Puerto Ricans for always keeping the dance party going strong! The Casino on this ship was practically dead throughout the cruise, but when I played, I had fun and even made a little bit of money. The service and the employees on this cruise were fantastic. They always make you feel like a special and valued guest. We met a lot of wonderful people on the ship and off the ship and we'll take these memories with us forever. With perfect weather, we had a smooth cruise and ideal weather for having fun on our excursions. This was a wonderful getaway at a great value and we're looking forward to booking our next Carnival vacation!!!

Overall, the cruise was very nice. I really enjoyed the ports and the the food was excellent. The only draw back is that they need to make their alcohol packages more affordable.

Every chance you have to eat in the Sensation Dining Room - DO IT! You will not be disappointed by the staff or the selection!

Purchase a (waterproof) camera! We loved capturing photos of our time onboard, as well as our excursions. When we went swimming with the dolphins and kayaking, we were able to take our camera in the water with us, giving us amazing photos and video! Also, bring an air freshener for your cabin!

There is a small Adult Only section called Serenity just off the back of the Lido deck. If you exit the doors to the left of the Pizza Bar just go down the steps. Its for 21 and older so go enjoy the quiet and two hot tubs for adults only. Unlike the other "sardine" hot tubs full of kids!!
