Review summary

This was a very nice cruise. The ship layout was very similar to the Vista, easy to navigate.

Embarkation

1 out of 5
NOT Carnival's fault, but the port authority....we waited for almost an hour for a wheelchair, with one porter refusing to take us because my friend was "too big" and the one that did take us, was the rudest person I've dealt with. They NEED more competent and friendly porters

OMG...I can't say enough about the entertainment, DJs and performers. They were AWESOME.....BUT Mike the Cruise director deserve a HUGE THANK YOU for making EVERY night a special night with all the activities and energy he gave. He was the FRIENDLIEST FUNNY ENERGETIC cruise director I've met...

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We were disappointed in our "ambulatory" balcony cabin. To start, we couldn't get the walker through the door, we had to close it to enter or walk sideways. Then we still had a step into the bathroom, which we weren't expecting in this type of room. Otherwise, the room was very nice.

Ports of call

Grand Turk Island
