The Ship That Sailed

Sail Date: September 14, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Wonderful, wonderful week! Perfect weather, smooth sailing, surprisingly comfortable bed, great shower, good food & plenty of it; super friendly staff & guests! - a great week. The Song-Dance-Magic show was Vegas quality! The shows and contests on Lido deck were fun & light-hearted.  Could've done without the stop at Jamaica, sorry to say, but the people were rude & some on our bus experienced a thief..... but really enjoyed Grand Cayman and Cozumel. The Caribbean is unbelievably beautiful and visiting it on board the ship or off is SO relaxing and fun.  I do highly recommend this trip and we're looking forward to booking our NEXT Carnival cruise!

I would stop landing at Jamaica least not the port we stopped at.
Cabin / Stateroom
Bed was wonderfully comfortable, shower was excellent, and our steward Art couldn't have been more helpful and friendly! More towels? Different kind of blanket? No problem. REALLY great.

Montego Bay, Jamaica
Sorry - rude people, travel not what was expected.....
George Town, Grand Cayman
The day was too hot,,,, but it was a fun port.
Cozumel, Mexico
Perfect, fun shopping, great snorkeling - perfect day!


The window seating on Lido deck for breakfast is a GREAT way to start your beautiful day! And the staff bring you extras while you enjoy your leisurely meal - like fresh coffee & juice and croissants.... LOVEd all the fresh fruit each morning.
