Review summary

I wouldn't do it again and, had I known I wouldn't have bothered in the first place. I've always loved cruising and I've spent 42 days onboard with Carnival before but this trip was not worth it. A VERY heavy cigarette/cigar smoke smell hit you every time you walked inside from the Lido deck...if you have problems with that smell, this is not going to be fun for you. Blecht.

was disappointed that there weren't any special evening shows, just comedy night stuff acoustic guitarist in the afternoon was quite good, the constant DJ at the one pool was fine-blah

Ship Quality

smallest I had been on, surprised me-only one pool with 2 hot tubs near it constantly full of kids-no one is getting into them after toddlers, common areas were clean, lingering smoke smell was gross

Cabin / Stateroom

Really surprised by how small it was-it isn't a Junior Suite, its the same size as a balcony room that I've had on other Carnival cruises, just for some reason, they call it a junior suite instead and don't offer balcony rooms, I expected more, frankly, but it was fine-it WAS clean-TINY bathroom, TINY balcony

Ship tip

cold and windy in January/February why bother cruising?
