Wonderful but wheelchair limited onshore.

Sail Date: November 30, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

Four of us, one in a wheelchair, shared a handicapped cabin.  Plenty of room and great service.  Food quality and service was wonderful.  The only problem was there were no onshore tours available for a person in a wheelchair.  It seems Carnival could put economic pressure on the ports of call to put wheelchair lifts in some busses for city tours and boats for sea-life viewing.  The tour staff seemed unconcerned and just said no tours for wheelchairs, the Bahamas have no ADA compliance laws. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Plenty of room for friend who sleeps in his wheelchair away from home. The other 3 of us were fine. Great cabin service.
Children's Programs No children with us. Two married couples staying together in one room.
Would prefer more revue type shows (singing and dancing).
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Jacksonville, Florida
Ate dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse. Fantastic meal and service.
Nassau, Bahamas
Great dolphin swim. Great shopping. Would have enjoyed a city bus tour but none that could accommodate the wheelchair.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
A disappointment. Wanted to snorkel but none available to rent because a brief rain kept the one rental man home. Beach access was dangerous. Shopping not nearly as nice as Nassau.


The two ladies did the dolphin swim and it was the highlight of our trip. Well worth the cost.
