Room Type: Balcony

After the first night in the Southern Lights Restaurant, and having very poor service, we moved to the Northern Lights and it was total 180.  Service was terrific, wait staff knew our names and drinks every nite.  The experience could not have been better.  Our room steward was also terrific. We did not need to ask for anything.  Our three boys, 21,22,24 all loved the boat.  Night time entertainment was limited as far as shows go.  The illusionist and comics were great, but the magician was doing tricks i learned in middle school.  The magician was also the comedy club manager, so maybe he was just a fill in for a real magic act....  I highly recommend the Carnival magic.   I was not impressed with Belize and will probably stay on the ship next time.  We enjoyed the Paradise beach in Cozumel and the YAYA beach in Costa maya.  made an unexpected trip to Key West instead of Roatan due to a medical emergency.  We were fine with this.

the "at sea" brunch is not that great. The BBQ shop on 5th floor is great, just not open too often.
