Review summary

We went with agr p.o upand I didntpick the ship or departure port. I would t ever leave from Tampa or go on a small Carnival ship again. It will be many years before I travel to the Caribbean again by everything has got so expensive and each port looks exactly the same as the one before.all the same shops and all built by the cruise ships so you don't see anything local unless you go on excursion

Onboard Activities

The big show was only on 4 often 7 nights.they didnt have five in movies and the comedy show even had a repeat as show on a night there was no other entertainment so you either did nothing or watched it again.

Same shows that are in all Carnival ships.60s, 70s and 80s music show and Motown, same old shoes they've played the last 7 years or so.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Our dining room waiters would ignore us for drinks since water was on the table already and only some in our group had bought the drink package, the staff only paid attention to them. We had 2kids at the table and we had to ask for crayons and kids menu each night and on past cruises this was automatic.

Ship Quality

1 elevator and if you don't have a freehamdylu can't use the escalator. After your tropylu bought souvenirs and liquor and you must take the elevator which took almost 45 minus to get to the first floor
