Review summary

Most relaxing cruise I have been on. The slamming of doors became a little much, but tolerable. I got the Covid test at the site, so we ended up bypassing all of the people in line, to go to the testing area. Once cleared, you check in. The ship is nice and modern. The time at sea gives you true time to relax and take in the sites onboard.

Carnival had this down to a science

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The Main dining was hit or miss. You could say I dont want to sit with another couple or group, but ended up within 2 feet of them at a nearby table. Buffets were solid, as always.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We had fun with trivia, the above ground cycling, and water park.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The elevators had everyone confused at first, but once you realized what you were supposed to do, it was a breeze.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Everything overall was okay. If I had to make a suggestion, it would have to be put springs or soft closers on the balcony doors. People let these slam ALL NIGHT LONG.

Ship tip

Take advanatge of the Serenity lounge. Its kid free.
