Grandson's Graduation Cruise

Sail Date: May 25, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

We have cruised Carnival and several other cruise lines in the past. We had an awesome time on this cruise. Our teenage grandkids had a blast as well. Our room service was excellent and our waiter was also excellent. He remembered all of our names, our likes and dislikes and was able to anticipate what we needed throughout our meal. We also made use of the Adults Only Serenity Area of the ship for our late afternoon Jacuzzi time which was great. It was a nice break from the amped up energy of the younger crowd. People tend to rank Carnival as less than perfect compared to other cruise lines but honestly we had no complaints. We have cruised extensively and have cruised with other cruise lines and have always had a great experience on Carnival.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Our Waiter Romano was terrific
Service and Staff
Our cabin Steward Marco and our Dining Room Waiter and staff Ramano were excellent
Motown Night was good. We had fun listening to some of the bands and dancing at the Mexica/Caribbean Fiesta night
Onboard Activities
Loved playing tennis, Corn hole, working out in the gym and hanging out in the jacuzzi
Destinations and Excursions
We live in So Cal so we had been to these destinations many times prior. We still got off the ship and walked around town for an hour or two then went back and enjoyed the ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
Had plenty of space for all of our clothes and toiletries. Loved having housecoats. Enjoyed getting towel animals, something other cruises are not doing much anymore.
Long Beach (Los Angeles), California
Weather was bad so we were bussed to San Pedro to Embark. Seemed pretty organized and went well.
Catalina Island, California
Love the shopping, unique coffee shops and ice cream stores
Ensenada, Mexico
My grandson loved having the experience of holding a lion and taking pictures with him.
