Review summary

Erin,cruise director, so much fun, personable and made trip! Love, Love Sal and Trina (personal shopping guides) their knowledge of port shops invaluable. Emily (cruise fun host) was sweet and adorable. We loved our Christmas cruise, the towel animal exhibit Xmas AM by the pool was awesome. Cant wait to go again.

The Christmas decorations and ship just sparkled! easy to find areas, would put more bathroom stalls by the casino bathroom though.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was fantastic, thinking we might like to stay on port side next time. We are spoiled will only stay on suite or balcony deck on all future stays. The showers are the best!

Ship tip

Make sure to visit dining room, it is a blast, great food, service and fun! the 24 hour pizza and deli a must too. Guys burgers (when hot and fresh) are the best!

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida

If you stay within the port (carnival owned) would advised, shopping great (diamonds IntL) but if you go into the town, it is dirty, scary, extreme poverty, did not feel safe!

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
No excursion, but we did walking tour to sunset beach, restaurant, great staff, food and happy hour from 1 - 3pm. They have swings in the bar that you watch the tourist and traffic go by, also offer beach side messages, excellent!
