Review summary

Due to the coronavirus we did not go to our original stops. Carnival did a great job making the best out of a bad situation. We were compensated with a $200 credit to our cabin.

My husband and I are platinum so embarkation is usually quick and easy.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The food options were awesome. My favorite was Guy's Pig & Anchor. We are there the first night. We wanted to go back but there was always a line. Highly recommend. I also though the sushi at Bonsai was really good.

Onboard Activities

The Skyride is a must. It was awesome!!!! The main pool was crowded but it was fun. I don't really love the huts by the pool. They take the view of the pool away and chair space.

Our towel gal on lido was great. She remembered me everyday.

Ship Quality

The elevators are my one complaint. They suck. Our cabin was on 9 and twice we took the stairs from the gangway. The elevators never came and when they did they were full. The system doesn't work on a cruise ship. The ship itself was really nice. The crew were always cleaning and so nice.

Cabin / Stateroom

No complaints. Nice location in the middle of the ship. Not too much noise.
