Review summary

It was a great cruise. The weather was beautiful, fun people, good times.


4 out of 5
Embarkation is always hectic but it went smoothly. There was a woman with either the port or Carnival, not sure which, that talked me into checking my carry-ons. I didn't think about the wine rule so one of the bottles was removed. I'll never do that again! I think she meant well, and we had had a hectic trip getting to port so I wasn't thinking clearly. But I will NEVER do that again! Carnival brought our wine to us after I explained the situation. It was our anniversary wine - we were having our 13th anniversary on the cruise!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The breakfasts on the Lido that weren't made to order were just so-so.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We were with a group that had private activities so we had a great time.

We went to the comedy club and ended up leaving. Not enough seating and standing is no fun when you've stood a lot already and done a lot of walking.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Our room steward was excellent. The brunch dining room staff service was not that great. Dinner service was pretty good. Love the shows they put on.

Cabin / Stateroom

Don't remember the cabin number but it was okay for an inside cabin. Clean, accommodating. It was all we needed.

Ship tip

Beware when you get a massage that they push you into buying product that is overpriced and not worth the money.
