Review Summary

Carnival did a great job with getting us on the ship and off the ship.  The quickest I have ever had!!! The cruise director was great and lots of fun activities once on board the ship.   I loved the Chef's Table experience.  It was amazing.  The chef took 4 days to prepare a custom dining experience. Prime Steak house was great. Loved the surf and turf!!! The excursions were great.  We Ziplineed at Country side Zip line in Dominican Republic.  Enjoyed Megan's Bay at St Thomas and the Rainforest in Puerto Rico. Sal the bus driver was very entertaining.  The All inclusive family beach resort was relaxing in Grand Turk.  Really enjoyed the cruise!!!

Ship Quality

Hated the ship layout. Not sure why you can't get thru to front or back of ship on certain floors. Very inconvenient especially since we were staying mid ship cabin.
