Review summary

In a few words; this cruise overall was worth the money minus they don't give any compensation if you do get sick off any of the dishes served on the ship. But do to the staff I had personal contact with; I would try Carnival Cruiseline again.

It was easy & fast to embark. It's always good to have extra clothes in a carry on just in case it take while for your suitcase to reach your room.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The first day on the ship; Pig & Anchor served some AWESOME BBQ. It took a minute to get the hang of when the buffet were being served on Deck 10, The Lido. I forgot that my Carnival app would have told me. All the food was good. Only reason I gave it a 3 star is because I did get served some bad Salmon cake at dinner that cause me to be sick badly and I ended up leaving my excursion early.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Carlos Beneato - Guest Services Associate: He was very helpful in every way. Anytime I needed help at anytime he went above and beyond the call of duty. As I watched him with each guest in front of me; he treated every guest as they were of royalty. He was patient and took his time to meet my needs. ILHAM -Stateroom Steward 32412: He was excellent in his service. Even when I was sick and throwing up everywhere; he along with those who worked with him did awesome in refreshing the room. He kept our room clean everyday. Evelyme or Evelyne - Northern Dining Room Hostess: My dinner reservation was messed up. i was suppose to have anytime dinner, but my card was messed up. i went to dinner too late not known. i went to the I think the southern dining room. They wasn't that pleasant when i explained to them the mixed up and they gave me the run around, but Evelyme understood the problem and fixed the problem and even gave me and my partner a place at the last minute.

Ship tip

I would say if you can each time you cruise choose a different ship name to see how each one glide on the water. Also if you can choose the larger ship because you won't feel the waves as much.

A lot of the residents on the island was rude. Other then that we enjoyed the beach.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
The people was very interesting that greeted us coming off the ship. The stores were nice. I did Ocean World and the encounter with dolphins. When my sickness stirred up from the salmon cake from the ship dinner the previous day. The people of the island treated me so well and made sure I made it back to the ship safely. They rinse me down with cold water.
