Bad experience for first time cruisers. My kids loved the cruise. Being the person that paid for everything, I was less than impressed.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Food was mediocre at best. Cheers/beverage pigs were a rip off

Creams Cafe

4 out of 5

Enjoyed the espresso

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Fitness room was nice, walking track was a nice option. Kids enjoyed the hotubs and pool. Unfortunately the pool had to be drained the last day at sea due to extreme speeds, to make up for just time after collision.

Anything geared toward adults required extra money...which is ridiculous considering the money it took just to book.

Ship tip


Ports of call

Montego Bay, Jamaica

4 out of 5
Excursion was rushed and again not a good value.

George Town, Grand Cayman Did not visit port

The captain told us the weather was going to get bad and they had already taken 2 bigger boats...sounds like a very poor excuse for bad planning on Carnivals part.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Ok..swimming w the dolphins was ok..not worth $100 per person.


4 out of 5
