if you are a sun worshiper and beach goddess, this is absolutely your cruise.

Our Steward and our Food Service staff was awesome.

Some communication breakdowns between and Carnival caused some disappointment but overall it was great.

We took the Outback Safari Tour in Amber Cove, Dominican Republic.  Our tour guides, Manny & Jose, were the best !!  Allowed us to discover the culture, economics, education system, etc.  Our favorite excursion by far. 

Cabin / Stateroom
We specifically requested twin bed configuration when booking and then again in the documents we completed. When we arrived at our cabin they were pushed together into a king. The lines we so very long that I did not get an opportunity to check with guest services until the next day. When I inquired to our steward he said he had nothing specifying that. Guest services offered no solution when I spoke with her... she said that was all taken care of in the booking. She was right !! My paperwork and confirmations definitely specify twin beds. Why bother to specify if it doesn't happen??
Embarkation and Disembarkation
certainly a long drawn out process and I know you do the best you can. It's just a lot of people to process.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
I think the price you charge for FOUR GAMES of Bingo is absurd!! Yes, we each purchased the deluxe package with 9 chances to win each game but FOUR GAMES?? We pay less than half of that at the bingo hall with 10-12 games.
Service and Staff
Anart, our room steward was above and beyond. Our wait staff was outstanding. Khin was a joy. It truly amazes me how ALL of them always remember our names!!
Food and Dining
disappointed that cruise elegant night did not include lobster tails ... they were included years ago.
Miami, Florida
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic
The Outback Safari tour allowed us to learn about the culture, economy, education system & be humbled like never before. Best shore excursion ever !! Our guides, Manny & Jose were the bomb !!


Behind the Fun tour can only be booked onboard and it goes quickly. If you want to know how this magical city operates, I highly recommend taking that tour on your final sea day.
