We had to dodge the hurricane and the crew did a great job keeping us posted of changes. Was rocky starting out but after the first day we never knew there was a category 5 hurricane to the west of us.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The main dining room dishes are amazing however the lido deck buffet could use some refreshing new breakfast items. We had the same things daily

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Serenity area was the best we have experienced on 5 carnival cruises, pool hot tub and bar.


4 out of 5
Comedians were great, Mike at the Piano bar was fun (went several nights) and the stage shows were pretty good.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
We had good staff mostly, however I never met my room steward.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I think the layout of this ship has been my favorite so far and that is compared to Celebration, Paradise, Vista and Magic

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an awesome balcony, best yet- room compares to any other room but balcony was extra long fitting 2 lounge chairs 2 chairs and a table with more room to spare. I would highly recommend this cabin

Ship tip

Don’t arrive too early. Walk the ship to find everything the first day. Also play putt putt it is great factoring in the wind on the first and last holes

Ports of call

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Beautiful little island with free beach access as well as big pool at Margaritaville will definitely go back


4 out of 5
Was smooth and lines kept moving- really like that it is at 10 and not 8 so you can sleep in a little bit
