Review summary

This was our first cruise and we celebrated our 20 year wedding anniversary. The overall experience has helped us decide that we need to go on more cruises. It was the most enjoyable get away from reality ever, and we are already looking into booking another cruise. Thank you Carnival for making this an experience to remember.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Organized chaos, one of our bags did not show up until well after we sailed, so we were very nervious about it being lost. It did show up, finally

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
I would have rated it a 5 star except for the POOR service and average food in the Carnival Steakhouse. The waiter in the Steakhouse was rude, condescending and made us feel like we were not good enough to be there. The Platinum Dining area was incredible and one of the highlights of the cruise.

Alchemy Bar

2 out of 5

The bartender was rude and seemed like she had better things to do than answer our questions about one drink or another

Platinum Restaurant

5 out of 5

The food was always incredible!!! The wait staff were fun and made each meal special. I have never had this much fun eating dinner!!!!!

Guy's Burger Joint

5 out of 5

Not just a greasy burger. These were incredible and each one better than the last. Only thing is the lines to grab this yummy item were always long, but worth the wait.

Emerald Room Steakhouse

2 out of 5

Not fun at all. Food was average at best. Waiter acted like we were not good enough to be in the Steakhouse. Value for the money was very poor. Would never go back there. They ruined our 20th anniversary dinner.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We tried BINGO, little casino, checked out the fitness center and Serenity Area.

Serenity

5 out of 5

An area for adults to kick back, relax, get drinks quickly, no kids splashing you, read a book, do nothing, whatever you like, this was the area to chill out.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The Rock show was incredible and the best show of the cruise. Some of the shows were a little cheesy and showed the limitations of onboard shows.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our cabin steward was incredible!! He always greeted us with a smile and remembered our names. The wait staff in the Platinum Dining area helped make every meal special.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Designed by a drunk sailor. To go forward or aft, make sure you are on deck 6 or you will be back tracking

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We were in cabin 6452 portside aft wrap around deck. The deck was incredible!! It was so large that it could double as a small jogging track. The cabin was nicely sized with huge windows which offered great views both during the day and at night. It was more than worth the extra expense and we will never choose a cabin without this size deck again. Loved it!!!!

Ship tip

Remember that deck 6 goes fully forward to aft and you need to use it to travel quickly

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

Embarkation and debarkation point

Montego Bay, Jamaica

3 out of 5
Had fun, drank too much rum punch on the Catamaran excursion. Margaretaville was a blast. Jamaica was an okay stop. Would not choose to go again though.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Try the SeaTrek excursion, it was a blast!!!! Also the locals were incredibly nice. Overall an incredible experience

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Did the VIP dolphin experience. The organization of this excursion was average at best. We nearly missed our time with the dolphins. The staff was very nice, but overall not very well organized. More time in the port would have been nice.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
So much faster than I was led to believe. Carnival did a great job here.
