Food and Dining
Carnival is miles behind other cruise companies in this area. The buffet did not offer much variety and the food that was offered was often very bland. The dining room left little to be desired as well. If it's good food you are seeking, do not choose this ship.
Service and Staff
Nice staff. Seemed willing to please customers.
The shows were good overall, but needed a little variety. Most were just the song and dance routine.
Cabin / Stateroom
A bit more roomy than others I've experienced, nice restroom, plenty of storage.
Children's Programs
My son really enjoyed all that was offered.
Ship Quality
It had a few challenges getting from one place to another. But overall, it was quite easy once learned. The ship was very clean and very modern.
George Town, Grand Cayman
We visited the turtle farm, that was nice.
Key West, Florida
Margaritaville was great. We also did a glass-bottom boat tour that was great.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
We did the Dunns River falls climb which was a tough and dangerous adventure. The town's people were very pushy and rude at times.
