Five days of awesome vacation.

Suite Host rated 10.  He was always right on everything and very happy and friendly to all of us.

Cruise director, Malcomb, was great at entertaining his guests. Awesome job.  

Dining room service rated 10.  Food wasn't anything great, but the service was excellent.  The only complaint is that our table was not in the dining area, it was placed like an extra table was set up to accommodate us. Our table was next to the serving station,  right by the entrance and hostess desk.  Not happy with seating and would rate 1.

Hot tubs should have longer hours and be a little warmer.  Open around 7 and stay open a little later. This is the relaxing time of vacation for some.

When the weather got calmer the game areas still remained closed, like volley ball, minature golf.  We were not able to access that area our whole cruise which was very disappointing.

Overall I would definately cruise Carnival again. Happy

Service was great. Food not to impressed. Did not like the location of our table. It appeared as they had to add our table and it was in the entrance by the serving station.

Best Host EVER.

Ship Tip

If you tend to get sea sick, the pills at the medical station work very quick and work well.
Check out the daily schedule first thing so you don't miss anything.
Don't worry about sleep. Do that when you get home. ejoy the fun.

If your flying into Houston it is much cheaper to rent a car that to take a shuttle. Then you can do what you want and take your time.
