Review summary

We have been on 4 Carnival cruises now and this by far blew the others away!!! Between the amazing ship and then the staff who we will miss and remember for a very long time we are so thankful!! I am a travel agent I sell primarily cruises and I will always recommend and travel with Carnival - it is affordable and the BEST time you can have on a cruise ship!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

We were not thrilled with the buffet however we were more than happy wiith all of the other dining choices. Farenheit was the best steak we have ever eaten. Teppanyaki was fun and the food was delicious! The sushi again best we have ever had!

Onboard Activities

Skyride, mini golf, quest, shuffleboard - the skyride was the BEST!!!!! So very cool!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward Teguh - was amazing, our cabin was never dirty and he always made time to chat with us and get to know us!!!! Our dining room staff - Florin and Enrico were the BEST - my daughter has a very severe fruit allergy and Florin took great care in making sure she had no issues with any of her meals - he was so caring and took the time to get to know us! The dancing was so fun - favorite part was "It's Showtime!!" and Enrico could DANCE!!!!!! We miss them all so much already and wish them nothing but the best in their future

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We cannot get over how clean the ship was - with that many people!! It was easier to get around this ship and the interior was just beautiful!

We were a party of five - all adults - and we were very comfortable in this cabin. The BEST thing ever was the 2 bathrooms - life saver!!!!! The beds were very comfortable as well

The port area was fine. We did the Monkeyland tour and it was hands down best thing we have ever done!!!! Our tour guide was awesome and gave us so much information about the island. The monkeys were so cute and it was just a whole lot of fun!!!!

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
We did the Sea Turtle and Snorkel excursion and being able to swim with the turtles was something we will not soon forget. Again our tour guide were so great about telling us the history and other facts about Curacao

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
By far our favorite out of any island we have ever visited!!! We just did the free beach excursion and we are still dreaming about how beautiful that water is!!!
