Wonderful Trip with Family

Sail Date: August 06, 2016

Reviewed: 10 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Boat was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Getting together each night with family was my favorite part and our wait staff was a big part of our enjoyment. The food tasted and looked wonderful that we received in the dining room. We took in a few of the nightly shows and really was entertained.

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Overall cleanliness of the ship was very good. They cleaned up any mess/spills that was made in a timely manner.
Design wise the ship was as little dark in the Main lobby area.
Destinations and Excursions
One of our excursions was cancelled due to damage done by a hurricane. Carnival worked with another company and offered us a replacement excursion that was comparable.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Our service team was the best I have had on any cruise. Our Headwaiter was Aldrin with Allan, Sudarta and Dragan on his team. We did anytime dining with a group of 10 which I know can be a bit of a wait. We requested them each night and was more then happy to wait(longest wait was about 20min). They greeted us each night as if we were family and we got to know them also. They worked well together and always had our extra requested items(sodas/drinks) on the way when we sat down.
Food and Dining
Dining room had very good food overall.
Was a little disappointed in the buffet both for lunch and breakfast. Because of this we opted for the dining room or room service for breakfast and the deli or Guy's for lunch.
