Review summary

Overall, I was disappointed with this cruise. I will not be traveling with Carnival any more, left a bad/no taste in my mouth. I paid to much money to have food I cannot eat, activities where I felt left out, due to lack of cultural sensitivity, and no kind of compromise to compensate for any of the issues I noted.

It was "OK"; I thought we disembarked late, it was about 6:30 pm when we left.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The food was absolutely horrible. I was extremely disappointed with the food. It was tasteless. I could not eat in the Main Dining Hall, because after my first meal, I was not satisfied. I am a diabetic, and it was hard to get a good meal. - Extremely Disappointed.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
I did not use the pool, too cold. There were no climbing walls, and I did not find until later the fitness center. However, I did go to the casino and the arcade.

None of the activities spoke to me to be involved in. There were no activities that were culturally diverse. Not good planning!!!

Children's Programs

I did not have children with me.

Service and Staff

My cabin steward and one who assisted him was good, Ariel was his name, and the assistant was Sharon. And Viera, a server was just exceptional!

Ship tip

Don't sail on Carnival

Ports of call

Baltimore, Maryland

2 out of 5
Extremely disappointed - there was no gangplank and we had to do a lot of walking. I was told the gangplank needed a part that was coming from Barcelona. That is unacceptable, should have a better work-around to accommodate boarding passengers who are differently able, and cannot walk long distances. Very Bad Planning!!!

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island) Did not visit port

We were informed by the Captain, there were not going to stop due to weather conditions.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Not much. Walk through the little township and brought a few items - however, I was not impressed.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

1 out of 5
Nothing there. The few shops at this port were over-priced and the items seemed to be "junk."
