Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Our upgraded state room was extremely dated, used and less than accommodating (poor visual acuity, broken wardrobe cabinet hinges)

The Staff and Entertainment were exceptional as always.

Tampa is the perfect port to leave and arrive from....

Cabin / Stateroom
Our upgraded state room dated and TV had poor acuity. Cabinets were less than desirable. I can take photos the next time. I am sure the lower broken hinge on the 3rd wardrobe cabinet is still broken, tv is the same.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
The ship is dated, but the deck plan is good for our crew.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
During formal night a jacket as a minimum should be required for dining or refer passengers to the lido deck is always an option. Sorry to see lobster night go as part of dinner. Outside of these two responses we had a fun time and enjoyed our dining with carnival as always.
Tampa, Florida
George Town, Grand Cayman
Just not a fan of George Town, its me....
Cozumel, Mexico
Cozumel is a great port and are building up the area around the port to better accommodate cruise goers. I could do without the hustlers, however part of the experience : )


If you are looking for a quick get away and a dated ship isn't a concern? This Fun Ship is for you!
