Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Inside

this was our first "Family Cruising" experience. We LOVED IT! We had so much fun lounging around the ship. The kids jumped right into the activities. There were plenty of activities for them to get in on! We had a fabulous day at Catalina Island snorkeling in spite of the cold water. Wet suits made it a BEYOND ENJOYABLE experience! The food was AMAZING! There were so many different kinds of food to choose from in the open dining areas. The FORMAL Dinners each night at the restaurant were AWESOME and the service OUTSTANDING! Thank you Carnival for a WONDERFUL first "FAMILY CRUISE" Experience!!

Pros: the food was EXCELLENT and there was plenty of activities for the kids!

Cons: the adult jacuzzi and lounge area was packed. difficult to find available lounge chair

weather was GREAT! We were having so much FUN on the ship we decided not to get off. The kids wanted to stay and swim and participate in the other kids activities.
