Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
First few days the food was great. There is only a few speciality dining’s. They still had buffets for the fully vaccinated cruise though. The food in the buffets kept repeating and got so boring. The baachus dining room was great. It had many types of food like Indian and Mexican ect. The blue cantina Had tacos, burritos and bowls. I personally didn’t like them, but some of my friends did.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Probably the most funnest cruise ship on terms of activities. It has 2 pools, 2 water slides and even a splash pool for the little kids. There was also a fitness center, and there were activities on the carnival hub app like movies in the mad hatters lounge and piano players and solo guitarists etc

The musicians were good. It’s more than I expected. The 88 key show was probably the best. They had movies, but it is really old ones in a small screen.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
Half of the childrens things were shut down. I understand because of Covid but they don’t really tell you until you pay. They have 12-14 and 15-17. The 12-14 play on video games, basketball and there is a whole schedule. Same with 15-17.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Best service and staff. Alvin and Dinio was the best! They helped us and Alvin was just purely funny during the show times.

Ship Quality

Realized they didn’t clean the bed sheets every day or clean the bathroom 🤮🤮🤮 but they set up the sheets so better than nothing.

Cabin / Stateroom

We got obstructucted view so the balcony was useless. It was pretty clean, and spacious for 2 people. Adding a third person made it to small.

Ship tip excursions very early- everyone will get the cheap ones and leave you with the expensive ones. 2: Pick your own time dining- sometimes shore excursions will go on your time of dining. 3: Take the carnival booklet the give you, as you can earn free stuff like jewels in your destination. (MAY CHANGE DEPENDING ON CRUISE TIME. ) 4: Bring a hdmi cable because the tv does support it. You have to use the button on the back of the tv.

Very hard disembarkation. Your kind of forced to take a taxi or a shuttle to the airport. You either have to walk a quarter mile to the Uber and Lyft pick up or you can wait for the shuttle to drive you there. The line is long for the free shuttle to the Uber and Lyft pick up zone so we just went on the taxi.
