Our 5th Cruise

Sail Date: July 20, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Cabin: GUAR

Our first time in an inside cabin and we were pleasantly surprised. Lots of closet space for a week of clothes and 2 formal nights. The food was very good and a lot of choices. The ship is older but clean and easy to get around. Service was good and our waiters were excellent and dinner in the dining room was very gourmet. Presentation was top notch !

Ship Quality
Needs a decor makeover which is happening this October, so our staff told us, and then it will be sailing out of Tampa.
Food and Dining
Very good selection in the main dining room and the deserts were excellent!!!
Service and Staff
Need last minute suit pressed and missed the deadline but our cabin stewart made it happen!
Carnival pride Dancers were very good.Comedians okay, but have heard better on other ships
Children's Programs n/a
Onboard Activities
Not enough involvement at some of the activites and could have used more poolside.
Destinations and Excursions
Took an excursion to the Perfume factory, which I would skip but the Brewery gave free samples.
Baltimore, Maryland
Easy thru customs not like FLL or MIA
Port Canaveral, Florida Did not get off, enjoyed the very short lines for lunch and dinner
Nassau, Bahamas
Last year we were there and you had to go thru the market place to get out, well this time you just went thru the gate, but got baumbarded by the local taxi,tour operators. Didn't even want to make eye contact , they hounded you all the way till you crossed the street to go shopping!!
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Wouldn't stop or get off there again. Not a very pretty island, like Nassau or Paradise Island. Very poor economy. Shopping bad, too.


One downfall. Disembarkation...Next time just be out of your cabin at 830a and then go eat. We waited in the holding area with nothing to do for 2hrs 45min. Once we were called, then proceeded right thru w/luggage since we drove to the port from Ohio.
