Loved it. The dedicated chefs table room was great.

Bonsai Teppanyaki

It was ok. Nothing compared to a benihana. Not worth the money IMO.

No couch in this room. Smaller then other rooms. Although extended balcony, seemed narrower, cause the furniture seemed to always be in the way. Don't leave anything back there overnight cause it gets dirty from smoke stacks.

Ship tip

Although I get the concept behind them, these smart elevators are horrible. It was about an average wait time of a minute. Which doesn't sound long but it is when your standing there. Ended up taking the stairs more cause of it tho.

We did a kattamaran trip to Saona island which the boat ride was not as described. It was supposed to be on a kattamaran but we never saw a kattamaran. When we told carnival about it the short skirts and supervisor was very rude. He told us we should have came down and asked them about it and he would have told us that it was not correct. Needless to say turn of all did not refund us any money. Looks like we won't be booking through carnival ever again.
