Service and Staff

Excellent service from Sutamba (room steward) and waiters Ruel, Vimal, and Mawi. Cruise director Frankie was great.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Ship was very clean and always being cleaned. The decor is gaudy and doesn't really match or have a theme.

Cabin / Stateroom

Had an adjoining room with the two balconies put together into one big one. Very clean and well kept by Sutamba. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises.

Little French Key is paradise on Earth! Little bit of a walk to the cab to Little French Key but I could use the exercise.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Fogged out of Tampa Port but Carnival did the best they could with the hand they were dealt. Kept the bars, buffets, pools and entertainment flowing.
