Honestly the employees were part of what made this trip so fun.  Our steward Muhammed was always so fun and energetic.  The server we had in the dining area was super sweet and nice to talk to, his name escapes me but I know he said he's been with Carnival 23 years.  The cruise director Dee was a lot of fun and very welcoming.  Our son loved going to camp carnival.  We got to participate in Studio VIP which we will never forget.  The list goes on and on about the service we received.  We never had a honeymoon so it was nice to have some time alone and this was my husband's 30th birthday present.  We were already talking about what we would do on our next trip on this same cruise before we even finished the week.

Food and Dining
Long Beach (Los Angeles), California
The quicker to the fun 50 dollar fee for priority boarding/debarkation etc is something we will do next time.
Catalina Island, California
Check out the Sandtrap. Good local restaurant/bar with a great view of the golf course. Take the bus it only costs 2 bucks and you get a quick little tour along the way!
Ensenada, Mexico
The shuttle that takes you downtown is worth the 3 dollars round trip and they have some great deals for excursions!


The breakfast offered at Guy's Burgers on the Lido deck is awesome. Shorter lines and make your own omelet and burrito options are yummy! Also the unlimited sodas juice etc is definitely worth it. We didn't get it this time and we totally regretted it!
