Review Summary

Overall the cruise was good. The ship was old and did not have the amenities of newer ships, ie. larger balconies, interactive TV, speciality restaurants, larger pools. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the excursion we booked with Carnival was great.

Cabin / Stateroom

My mother-in-law stayed in this cabin. My husband and I had a "junior suite". Not sure what made it a junior suite other than it had a bar with glasses. It wasn't bigger than other regular balcony rooms we have had. The balcony was much smaller than other boats we have cruised on.

Ship Tip

Great desserts at the coffee shop (not included). Desserts at the buffet and dining room weren't too exciting.
