Review summary

This was our first cruise and we enjoyed it a lot. I would do a carnival cruise again. The staff was very friendly and the ports are great. The ship might need a little bit remodeling in the cabins, it would be nice to have a second option for nighttime dining besides the dining room and buffet, that was included in the trip. The dining room desserts were great, but the main courses were only so so

Hasbro was fun, and the PG comedy was great... the singers and dancers shows were not my cup of tea.. they could dance, sometimes inappropriately and only some sounded good singing... Leigh was great, and the fun staff was fun! Staff was great. Mostly just the dancing was always appropriate and singing wasn’t great

Ship tip

To bring a Britta water bottle filter.. the water did not taste good at all and I had to add lots of lemon. 2. Bring lots of lotion because it’s not provided.

Loved the island! Sooooo beautiful! BBQ buffet was not clean at the closing time when we went for lunch.... gross actually. But the port was great and we would love to come back. Felt amazing in the water and safe!

Tired by this port and the water wasn’t as pretty as the first to stops so we mostly just shopped. The locals were really nice!
