Review Summary

If you are looking to totally relax plan on doing so in your stateroom. There was only 1 small operating swimming pool which stayed crowded with drunks in their early 20's. The lounge area by the pool was also a disappointment as it was always standing room only. This was awful since my grandaughter is 4 and maintenance was being performed on the kids pool for the entire 5 day trip.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
There were many dining options available to all. The diningroom staff were extremely accommodating especially Vanya and Carol in the Carnivale dining room. They were very kind, remembered our names and were just all around awsome!

Entertainment

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
Childrens pool was being maintained throughout cruise and camp carnival staff seemed completely unphased along with being unwilling to obtain information regarding when it would be available. CC staff (for pre-teens)seemed irritated and bothered when you asked questions. Not friendly at all.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had a suite that Julia kept immaculate. She also ensured that we remained stocked with essentials i.e. kleenex, emergen C's, etc.

Took a taxi to Playa Del Carmen. Shopped and received some excellent prices on Tequilla. We walked to Grande Walmart to purchase ship snacks, water and an additional suitcase. We ate at a restaurant (I can't remember the name) and had 2 for 1 drinks along with the best loaded nachos I have ever had! The beef was not ground beef but actual steak! YUM!!!
