Review summary

Overall it was a great cruise to start πŸ›³πŸ›³ have fun

Embarkation

5 out of 5
It was fast & easy but folks make sure your name you put on your rapid covic test matches all your documentation. If name doesn’t match & you been cruising. They will check your date of birth & address. Then you will have to pay $150 to carnival for a rapid test on site. But in all is very smooth checking 😎

The hot tub was not warm on the serenity area at all the entire trip. Sky ride is still the same fun to ride. Water slide ( blue tube ) was really fast πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but fun also. I video taped the ride & boy it was unbelievable 😳😳

Everything was great & they never forget your name. They are good at that. So folks always tip your stewards, & waiters when you can. For the great job they do for us cruisers. It means a lot to them.
