1st cruise On Carnival

Sail Date: November 01, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was my second cruise and my first on carnival. Even though the ship was older she still was very beautiful, well staffed by very friendly people, the food was awesome with many options. I would recommend this ship as the cruise director and his staff were hilarious, the comedy club had 2 great comics who do both a family and adult show. Even with an inside cabin at the bow of the ship on a lower deck we had no trouble sleeping, had plenty of room and the shower was really a good size (room for 2) and never ran out of hot water.
