The ship is getting old and the housekeeping is not up to par. Had to change cabin in the last day because of gas odor in the hallway. The new room was upgraded to window room which was nice.

Overall I was very disappointed with Carnival. Not sure I will sail with them again. With all the newer ships they are launching it is really a shame that they are still sailing this ship in these horrible conditions.

We took this cruise to unwind a relax and that we did. Service was great, exceptional staff the information that is given about the destination was priceless very important to learn the does and don'ts when you are in such a c"complicated" country. Cuba is a great experience and going on the excursion was great because you are educated about the sites and the people were absolutely amazing

Although the ship feels like it is stuck in the past, the staff make the trip enjoyable. When we left the port in Florida our plan was to go to Honduras and Cozumel. The very wise captain changed the route and port we would visit. Although we had rain, thunder and lighting and some rough seas, there were days the sun did peak out! No one got sick. Thank you for being so cautious and salvaging out trip.

I would never in my life consider taking this type of cruise from this company again they talk about your experience being serene our cabin was directly beneath the hallway there was always running jumping pounding day in and day out and management could not and would not do anything about it other than offer a bottle of wine as well as other issues of which I won't even get into

Don't miss out on the brunches in the dining room; ask for a window seat.

do early evening diner, so you can see evening shows. Pool was small, but enjoyed the hot tub. Take time to get to know the ship when you first get on board. For the first time, it was nice and would go again.
