Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

This was relaxing, wonderful, delightful, & excellent! Everyone on the Carnival Team was nice, generous, sweet & kind! The FOOD was amazing!  SO much food & delicious!  24/7 food on the Lido deck. Desserts to enjoy! And a dining experience at our own time in the Normandie Dining Room on the 3rd deck.  We enjoyed snorkeling in the crystal blue waters of the Half Moon Cay waters! We were guests at the Comedy Club & the Taj Mahal which had fabulous high energy dancing & singing performances! There were shops, night clubs, bars, coffee bars, casino, 3 pools (one that was Adult Only!) slides, miniature golf, exercise room & spa.  The BEST was our room with a balcony & a cabin housekeeper who kept our room PERFECT! It was a WONDERFUL VACATION! They cater to your every need!  A dream cruise!

Embarkation and Disembarkation Pay attention to your embarkation & disembarkation times.... there are a LOT of people to board and to un-board.

Food and Dining
Baltimore, Maryland
The National Aquarium is a MUST! And dinner at the outside, water front Phillips Seafood Restaurant is paramount.
Grand Turk Island
We booked the "Papa J's" tour on Orbitz... Juline & Dwight own it and she was a wonderful tour guide - knew the whole Island. It's a tiny Island with history & a cute lighthouse. One lane roads, no traffic lights, lots of construction (it was devastated by storm & is suffering from drought), but it's cute & the ocean is gorgeous & the sands are fine.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
The Snorkel excursion is WORTH it! Book it!
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
The Taxi Service was wonderful.... they took us to the Garden Grove! ($35 cab ride for 2 each way, plus $15 per person entrance fee) Instead of an excursion we went at our own pace. WORTH IT!


You can carry on one bottle of wine per person (not beer or liquor) & a 12 pack case of canned (not bottled) soda or sparkling water. Turn your Smart phone to airplane mode. Pay attention to what you sign, you might be BUYING it. There's a lot that's FREE, but extras COST. Pay attention.
