Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The main dining room for dinner was very good. The specialty dining was awful and long waits Seafood station overpriced and very long wait

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
They did not have enough pool chairs for everyone. We actually molasses the green eggs and ham event because I had to get up a 7 am to get chairs for my family and then couldn’t leave them Pools were small and way to few Of them for all the people on board

Cabin / Stateroom

Balcony was very nice. Since front of shop don’t recommend for people who get sea sick. Waters were very rough and you could feel it more in front of ship

Ship tip

I personally after my experience on this shop will never use carnival again. I spent a lot of money for my family to have am amazing experience. Due to over crowding and not enough pools and chairs and 3 days at sea it was not relaxing at all

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

3 out of 5

Grand Turk Island

2 out of 5
Beach nice but over crowded. The tour was ok but grand Turk was pretty dumpy wiped out by hurricanes. Need more options to get to Caicos islands by smaller boats

La Romana, Dominican Republic

2 out of 5

I did actually do an excursion but not through carnival and it was the best one

Very slow. Also getting off at the miscellaneous ports was so unorganized. Needs a better system then everyone trying to get down stairs. Lots of miscommunication
