Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

Background/Context of Cruisers:

I'm a local and travelled with two others. One was a first-timer and the other hasn't been on a cruise since her childhood. We're all in our mid-late 20s and big time loungers.


Overall, the cruise was fantastic for my friends and me. We've really enjoyed the ease of everything from dining to the staff. I personally think this is a good cruise for first-timers.

Cabin / Stateroom
Clean, large enough for 3 people. Can easily fit 5+
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Too much indoor smoking...
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
"Clean" fun is rare on this ship. You'll always encounter someone who's smoking or has had a little too much to drink.
Besides the big shows, everything else was pretty mediocre or poor. Hosts were not very active/energetic.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


Learn deck plans before sailing! Not sure if it was because I booked directly with Carnival, but I was called for a "cheap" upgrade.
