Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We only attended one dining room and that was great. Food choices I felt were insufficient and we had dinner at the Buffet a few times as a result.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
It was roo windy to play pool or mini golf. Tried the bean bag toss and used the walking track


4 out of 5
We have seen better performances on previous Carnival ships. The singing was okay however the dancing was amateurish.

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room steward was excellent responded defectively and timely to a couple of requests. All of the waiters seemed to be funny and polite. Got a bit of misinformation from the duty free store regarding alcohol limit. We were cautioned by US Customs for bringing too much.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
A 2 year old ship, Washroom was new and very clean.
