Stage shows are the same ones for the past few years. The groups that performed on deck 3 and casino bar were great.

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
Room steward great. Never went to dining room and the bar service waiters most of the time were not existent. Used to always get called by name but seems like staff is more of a training crew and doesnt acknowledge you by name.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Kept up nicely

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Best room I ever had. Roomy and steward kept it in top notch shape.

Ship tip

Go to the dining room for breakfast. Food was better than the lido buffet.

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

1 out of 5
As soon as you get off the ship, you are hounded to buy things. A lot of shops now charge a 12% tax that they call added value tax. A lot of prices are quite a bit higher than the US. 1 12oz coors light is $5. The liquor stores very expensive. A lot of people trying to sell you Marijuana.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

2 out of 5
Island is beautiful. Beach is very rocky. Must wear water shoes. Lot of sea urchins close to shore. Decent snorkeling from shore. Rented a adult sanctuary cabana and no security and no way to lock it up. Had items stolen from cabana and carnival refunded 20% of cost which was less than items taken. Ships crew took all the towels out of the cabana at 230 even though we still had 1.5 hrs left. Found out no towels after snorkeling in front of cabana. Captain Jack was great with the drift fishing excursion.

Long wait for the carnival transport to pick us up. Waited almost 2 hours.
