Review summary

We had a great time for this being our 1st cruise. It was everything we expected and more from listening to our friends and some of our family. There was so much to do that we couldn't do it all even if we tried.

Even though it was late leaving due to the weather the crew really made us comfortable and got us on the ship pretty quickly.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was great. If you were hungry that would of been your own fault. There was more than enough.

Normandie Restaurant

5 out of 5

8:15 Dining was extremely excellent and fun. Rashid, Sanjib, Diarsha, Monica and Dana were excellent waiters. They were very friendly and attentive to whatever we needed and helped us connect to the people at the surrounding tables making getting to know each other pleasant. It was like we all knew each other.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
AWESOME: Rashid, Sanjib, Diarsha, Monica and Dana (Normadie 8:15 dining) were all AWESOME. They helped make sure every meal we had with them was excellent and fun. They even made sure our Anniversary Night was special and sang to us. We enjoyed talking to them and getting suggestions from them as well. Michael was our room steward and he made sure everyday that our room was in order and we had everything we needed. He always made sure he checked on us and if he was down the hall and saw us he would make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Crazy Kyle :) and Saffie were great host with every show or event they were doing. Marina and Violeta were great during Disembarkation and dealing with the people as they were getting grumpy because they didn't want to wait there turn. These ladies were very professional.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was very well cleaned. The attendants were on top of everything. Bathrooms, hallways, restaurants, etc. The ships layout was fun and my husband and I would challenge each other to see who was right when we got off the different elevators.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our friends that have been on cruises before told us it would be a tight squeeze especially since I was renting a scooter. But it was quite comfortable and spacious enough for us. And Michael had and kept our cabin very clean.

Ship tip

If you have any limitations or need assistance let Carnival know in advance and it will make you trip a lot smoother. I learned from my friends about the Special Needs Group and to ask to have a shower chair in my room, get wheelchair assistance to my room, etc.

The young ladies during disembarkation were very professional, pleasant and patient. Violeta and Marina handled themselves and the impatient people that didn't want to wait for their turn to leave very well. Debbie (wheel chair asst.) was very pleasant and handled
