Ship was very nice , but I didn't like the layout compared to other Carnival ships we've travelled on, and pools were very small for such a big ship.

Lobby and Atrium Bar

3 out of 5

Loved the ship except for the layout of this atrium and bar, most atriums go all the way to the top of ship and are open with railings all the way around , every floor , for people to stand and look down to watch the entertainment at night , this layout was different than any other ship as to the atrium only went up half way for some floors. The stage was literally on top of the bar so if you were having a drink , you could not see up there to watch.

Onboard Activities

Plenty to do , but pools were very small, and no serenity pool just for adults.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was well maintained and clean , but once again the layout wasn't great after some of the other ships we have travelled , atrium was not all the way open to top , so people could not see the entertainment from up above , pools were very small, and no serenity pool for the adults.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an ocean suite , was phenomenal, lots of room , big bathroom with jacuzzi tub , huge balcony.

Beautiful place , reminded me of Havana , Cuba a little , went to the Fort and walked through town , wanted to see the umbrella street but the took them down because of the earlier protests.

Grand Turk Island

Bluest water I've ever seen out of all the many places we've been , rode ATVs , horsebacked on beach , ziplines, and snorkeled! Great time!
