Review summary

It was a nice cruise. We enjoyed the ports and took advantage of walking around and exploring ourselves. Theres alot close that you can do without excursions . If we were finished at port we just went back to the ship grabbed a drink and sat by a window enjoying the view

Embarkation

5 out of 5
No issues leaving. Port parking was easy No lines to embark. 3rd cruise so its fairly routine now

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I cant complain The ship is nice and its clean. As per the last 2 cruises there needs to be more sitting area for the buffet on Lido deck. During the busy hours its hard to find a seat. Some people were standing to eat

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I know some complain about this area but all cruises are what you make of them. There are plenty of things to do such as shows, bingo, trivia comedy and the list goes on. We kept ourselves busy and had a great time

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The stage shows were fantastic. The dancers were amazing the comedian was hilarious we were in stitches.

Children's Programs

no children in our party

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service and staff are amazing. Always helpful. For the amount of people they have to care for on a daily basis I give them 2 thumbs up. Ive never encountered a unpleasant worker on this ship

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
I felt it was a touch outdated but still a very nice ship. It was easy to get around and there was plenty of room

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Bed are always somewhat hard on Carnival ships but after a full day of excursions and entertainment on board we didnt have any issues falling asleep. The cabins were always cleaned when we came back to our room

Ship tip

Make the best of your cruise. Enjoy everything on board the ship has to offer. The more you do the more fun you will have

5 out of 5
It was a nice stop. First time here. We enjoyed our self guided tour

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
Absolutely loved this port. The water is crystal clear. You can see the small fish swim by your feet. We grabbed chairs that were provided and hung out sitting in the water while the wait staff brought us drinks. Couldnt ask for a more relaxing beautiful day

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
This area is a little less attractive. Its a little dirty and there are people pushing you to buy things on the streets. We still had a good time shopping. Saw Atlantis from afar and ate at Sinor Frogs. That was a blast

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Had to wait a little bit to get off but we werent in any hurry. No issues
