A nice break from our normal routine. Enjoyed the beautiful weather at each of the ports.

Guest Services was awesome in trying to resolve issues with Carnival's Preferred provider for special needs.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Not impressed with menus and ate a lot in the buffets. Appears to have a lot of people who preferred hamburgers from Guys, sandwiches and hotdog. Menus need to be less "trendy" and more basic. Early dining got changed to 5:30. 8:30 is too late, but 5:30 is too early, especially when you have ports.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Pool was great. Need more daytime activities, especially on a longer cruise - don't count the sales pitches disguised as events.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Enjoyed the juggler and hypnotist. Would love to see the shows brought up to the previous quality from when we first cruised, with costumes and scenery. The "Getaway" show has been seen more than once.

Children's Programs

No kids

We love Margaritaville. Unfortunately they had an incident and the pool was closed, but that was out of everyone's control.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
It went smooth. We were a day late because of weather and a very rough last day at sea. Staff were very helpful
