The ship is really nice. Huge and alot to explore. Definitely worth seeing once. Overall a great experience due to an amazing room steward.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food is pretty much always available but during the off hours expect few options and a long line for food that is pretty much tasteless. If your not picky about food this cruise is great but if your a bit of a foodie prepare to be let down.

The Carnival Capers listed what was happening when, but not what the activity was. I would of liked some descriptions as to what the activities involved. The cruise director wasn't that good either. It was his last week though so maybe he just didn't care.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone on the ship was extremely helpful. The one downside is the frequency they ask if I want a drink. Sometimes I just want to be left alone.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is huge. You will spend the first day just exploring the many places to drink/eat/hangout. There are 3 pools and a waterslide but expect them all to be packed with kids and adults.

Cabin / Stateroom

Good size, very comfortable and near everything. An interior is just fine for this ship

3 cruise boats landed here at the same time so the staff couldn't handle the 10,000 people so getting to our excursion was a nightmare but when we got out to the Coral Reef and a chance to swim with and touch the stingrays all was forgotten and great times were had.
Don't Miss: The Reef and Ray Adventure

So beautiful. The water is crystal clear, the people so friendly and the food so cheap. Don't miss the Elote ice cream. That's corn ice cream. SOOOO good. The ATV adventure was so much fun. The people so nice I ended up giving them a huge tip.
Don't Miss: The ATV Jungle and Beach Adventure

This place shouldn't be an excursion. We docked at an old factory. It was rusty and dirty. The rest of the excursion was just as bad. There is no real beach at Ocho Rios. The people are very aggressive and kept trying to sell me illegal substances
Don't Miss: Dunns River Falls is worth seeing if you end up at this port.

Pros: Room Stewart, Pools, Ports, Friendliness

Cons: Entertainment, Food

Recommends Carnival Liberty? Yes!
