Review summary

We had a great time. This was our longest cruise yet and it did not disappoint. The ship does need some love as some things are in disrepair. They were working on parts of it while we were cruising but it didn't stop the fun.

Checked in at 1130 with no issues. It was a very quick process.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Normal carnival buffets food was decent. They have the cakes where they will cut peices off for you. They were so much better than the prepackaged desserts we have had previously.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship needs some serious TLC. We had a piece of trim fall off while we were in the elevator. Some tiles were loose in the buffet areas and soft spots on deck 10. There was a drink spilt in one of the seats in the Amber Palace on deck 4 with the cup sitting next to the seat. It was there the next night as well.

Cabin / Stateroom

Our steward Allison was very nice and our room was clean. Had a dirty wine glass in it to start with though.

It was pretty but book an excursion. We got off and got right back on. There is nothing to do right in port.

Record time for us. We were on the road 20 minutes after they called for our floor. We do express disembarking and carry our luggage.
