We had a wonderful time on our cruise. Overall it was a positive experience. However, there are some things that could have made it better. We found this particular ship difficult to navigate. Getting to our dining room was an event. You have to go down and around and then up. At least I think we did. It was so confusing. The ship is really big and you will do a lot of walking regardless of where your cabin is located. We found that the service didn't seem to be as good on this cruise as it had on past cruises, with the exception of our room steward, Arnold. He was wonderful.  We have never been fond of cruise food so we weren't disappointed in it this time because we expected it. The ship got us to where we needed to go and that was the goal. So in that regard it served it's purpose and we certainly didn't have a bad time!

Embarkation and Disembarkation
We had Faster to the Fun so this was a breeze.
Ship Quality
Clean and pretty but difficult to navigate.
Destinations and Excursions
You just can't beat the Caribbean! We used an independent excursion company so I can't speak for the Carnival Excursions.
Onboard Activities
Didn't care for the comedy shows.
Service and Staff
Dining room staff and service was lacking. We encountered a little rudeness at the customer service desk. But...our room steward was wonderful! Go Arnold!
Food and Dining
Variety is good, quality isn't.
Galveston, Texas
I'm always just in and out of Galveston so it's hard for me to comment. I hope to spend more time there next time.
Cozumel, Mexico
Cozumel is always fun!
Belize City, Belize
Not a beautiful city but if you know this going into it you won't be disappointed. A guided excursion is a must.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Love this port. The beach was beautiful.


Show up early for any and all activities to avoid long lines.
