The shows were good, singers great however I wish there would have been something a little different. Perhaps a cirque du soleil type show or Phatom of the Opera type show both of which I had seen on an NCL cruise and loved.

Children's Programs

We were always doing things with our kids...never had the need for kids programs

Service and Staff

service was great

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Overall the ship was great...I would have liked to see a more open concept. I really like how RC has the Promenade mall layout. Everything on this ship felt closed off.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony with my morning coffee. Room was very clean and beds were comfortable.

Ship tip

I would suggest booking the Carnival Kitched coursed early on if interested. I waited too long and missed out on the cooking courses I wanted to take.

Ports of call

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Mazatlan, Mexico

The ziplining excursion was great for my husband and son however there isn't anything else about the port that I would have like to have seen. My daughter and I stayed on the boat which we did really enjoy.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the Sea Lion Excursion here however the photo package was extremely expensive compared to all other excursions.
