Review summary

We have cruised many times and this was not one of the best even for Carnival because: 1. Too many children, most parents did not address behavior, like climbing over and jumping on furniture, running into other passengers. 2. Would be nice if photos were available to view from a kiosk, rather than multiple walls 3. Smoking in casino was awful for non smokers 4. Add ability to add excursions to the Carnival app with a notice 15 min before need to be at meeting location Please consider offering some adult only cruises

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining room meals seemed a little rushed. Steak house was excellent. Missed the option to sit with other passengers. Other than 1 breakfast sat by ourselves for every dinner.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Used the pools - nice Trivia - good. Sports trivia should NOT be done in the sport bar on Satruday or Sunday that are major sports days i.e. Football

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Stage shows were just more of the same, just different music era. Prefer variety. Piano Bar and Love and and Marriage were always the best

Children's Programs

We are well beyond the age to use this service

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Friendly, helpful and always there when you needed them. Our favorite was Bartender T in the piano bar - he went above and beyond all the time

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
One issue was stroller left outside rooms in the hall. Would think this is a safety issue and difficult to passengers using assistive devices to pass by

Ship tip

There are a lot of children under age 5 or are not well behaved. Worse the parents allowed it. No non smoking area in casino. Had to walk through the second hand smoke to get anywhere from the front the shop where our room was located. Ship follows shop time when in port - not emphasized enough.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida

Port was very nice. We did the sting ray excursion. The experience was great, the staff (bus driver, guide and boat staff) were Ok. Very little interaction with guests. Guide spent entire time on her phone going out to the location. Once we got there it was like get in the water, take photos and lets get going. Very little information about the island or sea life. Driver only pointed out all the place to go to eat. Travel time to excursion was at least twice what was in the description

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
