Review summary

We enjoyed our time on our cruise. The staff was so wonderful, nice, attentive and fun. The food, on the other hand, was horrible! It seemed like the cheapest sourced food possible, sometimes having zero flavor. Also the water was only in two places on the cruise and came out so slowly. How are people supposed to stay hydrated? Other than that, it was incredible. Would probably never travel Carnival again because of the food alone.

Food was plentiful but pretty bland, with almost no flavor. Hard to find healthier options. Water came out slowly! Found it hard to stay hydrated without filling up liter bottles to take around the ship. Pina coladas were good. Hard boiled eggs and cantaloupe became our favorite breakfast.

Ship tip

Bring a bigger water bottle! The only place you can get water can be pretty far from your cabin.
