Review summary

Would not go on Carnival again except possibly to try one of the newer, bigger ships. Was very happy we had only booked 4 nights. 7 would have been too long on this ship.

Embarkation was quick and easy

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food in main dining hall left much to be desired. One night it was very hard to find something to eat, what we ended up having was pretty bad, lasagna.

Piano Man Bar

5 out of 5

Had a fantastic time in the piano bar. Very entertaining!!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Main Pool was very crowded so we spent most of our time on the upper adult decks. Hot tubs were impossible to get into.


4 out of 5
Night club was an unruly mess because of spring break. After that we stuck to the smaller venues and have a nice time.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
For the most part, staff was on task. You could definitely tell spring breakers were wearing on them by end of trip.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Old ship that desperately needs a major facelift. Hallways and carpeting in sad shape. Atrium area and dining room we’re in good shape.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Paint was peeling, shower bar fell off wall first night, couch was stained and worn, bed were extremely uncomfortable, shower didn’t drain properly, sheets on one bed were very pilled. Overall cabin was in bad shape.

Ship tip

Eat before 5 at Guy Fieri’s burgers, best meal on the ship.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

4 out of 5
Port Canaveral is always well maintained.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

1 out of 5
Horrible port area. We got off ship very briefly to purchase something, then right back on.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Port itself is very busy but easy to maneuver. Our excursion to Balmoral island was a waste of money. Major confusion to the point of having to get off ferry and on to another one on way there. Had less than 2 hours on island. VERY DISAPPOINTED!


4 out of 5
Quick and easy, took own bags off.
