Well....if you are a first time cruiser give it a dont know any better. If you have cruised on some of the more high end lines, save your money. The crew and rooms were great. We can stop there. The activities were few and far between and lame when you got there. The pool was so crowded you could not squeeze one more person in and we never even attempted to squeeze ourselves in. The venues for the shows...get there early or you wont get a seat. The food....well the sweets looked good, but we left a lot of food with one bite taken from it on our plates. We were totally rerouted due to a hurricane, disappointed but not a problem, until we were taken to the Carnival Outlet Mall of Grand Turk. They are developing the island and unless you take one of thier excurisions you cannot access any of the town and left to shop for more perfume, jewlery and liquor. Our excurision of swimming with the rays was the highlight of the trip. Used the spa, nice but had the pressure sale of buying products after my services. Lots of first time cruisers who were happy to be out of the factory for a few days and older people who were happy to see another buffet line starting. Please if you have cruised another a bit longer and you won't regret it.

Pros: Staff and Room

Cons: Food, Pool and Activites
