This is the smallest Carnival ship we have been on which allowed for some good and bad points. The good part was there are many less people than their larger ships.  It is much quicker to walk from front to back and the service, for the most part, was of the same great quality that we've come to appreciate.  On the bad side, it felt as if the entertainers and restaurant staff were their "minor league" team. The singer in the Ivory Piano Bar was so bad it was embarrassing. And while our wait staff were very friendly, they were just not as on their game as we've had with the larger ships. Overall, though, we had a great experience and enjoyable time, as usual with Carnival.  

Ship Quality
The quality was fine but the decor left much to be desired.
Food and Dining
Ship food is ship food. Not much to be excited about with the exception of Guy's Burger Joint which is amazing!
Service and Staff
Our room steward was excellent and knew our names when we arrived.
2nd rate.
Children's Programs
Our daughter truly enjoyed the time she spent at Camp Carnival. The program and counselors seemed top notch.
Onboard Activities
Less to do than the larger ships. However, the art gallery was great.
Destinations and Excursions
We love this itinerary and have traveled it several times.


Don't miss the brunch served in the dining room on sea days. It's a nice departure from Lido deck breakfast.
