Review summary

Love cruising. Thanks so much to Marybell, Joycla, Ancelmo (Dining staff)and Cherie (spa). Spent time on shore snorkeling, sight-seeing and just walking. Spa was a first for us but certainly not the last.

Food and Dining

Absolutely fantastic, over the top dining staff. Marybell, Joycala and Ancelmo, Jr. We asked for early seating but got Your Own Time dining and so glad we did. We asked for the same table each night and Marybell's station each morning.

Onboard Activities

Utilized the spa for the first time. Fabulous! Personal trainer, acupuncture, yoga (remember some of us are beginners and some moves can truely cause injury) Love the upper level therapeutic areas!

First time in 9 cruises on Carnival that I was disappointed in any way with theatre shows. Very poor quality! Actually felt sorry for the cast on several occassions because they did put in a tremendous effort. Only on good comedian out of the four during the cruise. Mr. Brown was great!

As stated above - fantastic wait staff, cabin steward was very good and Cherie was terrific at reception for the Spa. She should be in management.

Ship Quality

Was surprised at the severe wear-and tear on deck chairs and paint splatters everwhere on balconies and deck. Ship was refurbished last year.
