Review summary

This was my first Cove Balcony and the experience was an Amazing Wonder! So glad it was on my bucket list! Breakfasts on the balcony were memorable. The Bahamas & Carribean sea surf is just below your deck, beautifully loud, close and almost touchable! Lifetime experience! Ship's food was exemplary! Staff as well! Carnival Fun!
