My husband and I booked this trip last minute. It was the first kid free vacation we've ever taken and we the best time! Although the ship was a little older, the food, entertainment and staff did not disappoint! The stateroom staff was beyond amazing, the cruise director and the entire entertainment team go above and beyond to make sure you're always engaged and always having a great time!

Terrible customer service

I would not recommend Carnival to anyone that may need a special accommodation. Even after Carnival could not fulfill the request for an ASL interpreter nobody called us to let us know. The customer service once on the boat was terrible with trying to get this issue resolved. Customer service asked if we would like to get off the boat and travel back home alone leaving the other 17 people in our party on the boat to enjoy their vacation.

This was a great first cruise experience. It was both extremely relaxing and super fun. I would recommend this cruise because of the cleanliness and very wonderful staff on board.

Great time. My son caught the cruising bug so we will be cruising again. Wish I had brought my own camera so I wouldn't have to buy the ships photos

On the final day you can go to the lido buffet and have breakfast while waiting to get off the ship. if you take your time and have breakfast and get off the ship at about 10, quicker through customs and parking lot. You do not feel like your getting the bums rush to get off the ship.

If you can carry your bags on with you, I would recommend this over having the bags delivered. We like to do this so that we can unpack quicker and get out an enjoy the daily cocktail special and hit the Burger Bar and enjoy the delicious food.

on the last day, we waited to the very last minute to exit off the ship and avoided the crowd.
