Repeat fun and relaxation on another carnival ship!

Sail Date: February 22, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship great, food delicious, entertainment from your people great, black comedian not acceptable.  Just wish there were more places for a pale white lady like me to sit outside without direct sunshine.  Way too many lounges directly in the sun.

Hated the hectic, slow disembarkment, felt trapped.  Consult other of your cruise lines to see how they do it.  We just sailed the Valor one week earlier and did not suffer their disembarkment.

Cabin / Stateroom Our cabin lady was Ni and she was terrific - always friendly and greeted us by name, also left our cabin spotless. Pls. commend her for us.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Having to stay on the ship while people dragged the luggage first was terrible. Pls. contact your other cruise ships and find out how much more smooth and well organized they are. The week before we sailed on Carnival Valor and exiting was smooth and easy. Perhaps the folks dragging their luggage should go last, We went a few mins. before luggage assignment and it was all right there to smoothly leave. But we should not be trapped on the ship for way too long waiting for the draggers.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions We understand we could not get on the private island due to terrible weather in the states, so Freeport was a nice alternative. We visited your private island last year and really loved it all.
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Had none of our 16 grand kids with us, but could tell all the parents seemed very happy.
The entertainers were terrific!! Didn't like the black female singer, so we left. The comedians could have had different material for each night because there was a lack of dance/sing nights we went to all the comedians shows only to hear repeats. I could have gotten up there and told different stories every time, but they are getting paid for it. Also the black comedian told beating kids jokes and was totally unapropriate!
Service and Staff
Ni was our cabin lady and she was really terrific, clean and friendly.
Food and Dining
Jacksonville, Florida
Nassau, Bahamas
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
We went last year and loved it, but the weather prevened out visit this time, very understandably. However we had never been to Freeport and had a nice time there.
