Boarding the ship was fairly easy with the new time slots and the numbering system they use.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The main dining room was good as always with a wonderful wait staff, breakfast buffet was good. The lunch and dinner buffet options for people who watch what they eat is in need of an overhaul. Burgers were overcooked and limited selection on the salad bar.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The gym was very hot and the jacuzzi didnt work in there or the ladies sauna except the last day of the cruise. Pools were good and hot tubs when you could get in them.


4 out of 5
If they had only the Daft Sailors band which was aweaome I'd have given this one a 5, but the theater musicals and choreography was bot very good. They had lots of props that they just moved around the stage for some reason. They didnt use them much so didnt see the purpose of them.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Dining room staff was excellent. Room stewards were great.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship was very clean as usual for carnival, but the decor is very dated and furnishings looked old and worn out in common areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was clean and serviced daily by friendly stewards.

Ship tip

It was a very quiet time on this ship this time of year since there were only aboutb25 or so kids and an older crowd.

Ports of call

Cozumel, Mexico Did not visit port

Walked to old part of Cozumek with local bars and restaurants. Very relaxing day.

Belize City, Belize

Did the dolphin swim and turtle excursion. Would've rated this a 5 but they kinda of stick it to you for pictures if want proof of it since you cant take your own at the dolphins
