Will definitely cruise carnival again... Not sure my husband will because of his severe cigarette smoke allergy. He enjoyed everything except that!

The lines were long but went extremely fast!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
I've always heard about cruise food. The main dining room was good, sometimes great, but I was looking for AMAZING and it lacked a little. Now the tea... AWEFUL!!! I could not wait to get home and get back to my sweet tea. This tea was unsweet and had a horrible aftertaste! Carnival, PLEASE fix that!!!! Guy's restaurant was great! The buffet was pretty good.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was a maze, but we got through it

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was good, but the couch and bunk bed were very uncomfortable for my children. They didn't sleep well.

Ship tip

Buy the hub app ($5 per person) so you can keep in touch, and stay away from the tea!

Just shopped. Waited to get food back on the ship as the restaurant prices were ridiculously high ($15 for a hamburger, $4 for a can coke)

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
Go see Jimmy and Mr. Bul for an awesome tour of the city, shopping, and swimming! Only $10 per person!

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

This was the most beautiful port of them all!!! We went to the beach and enjoyed a relaxing day!

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Beautiful shopping area, but we were over shopping at this point. Should have done an excursion.

Getting off the ship was like herding cattle. They should call floor by floor to free up the crowds and elevators!
