Overall, we had a blast. The biggest issues we had were the limited smoking areas (& can't smoke on the balcony either) and the disembarkation process. Otherwise, the staff was great, food choices were great, and the ports were wonderful.
The ship is older than others we have been on but it is comfortable. We enjoyed a lot of time on our private balcony as well as other out door areas of the ship. We were blessed to have some outstanding crew members taking care of us.
First and last cruise. The long waits might have been bearable if entertainment and activities were good.
Disappointed after all the hype. My feeling is that if you like to eat and drink it is great. Not for me.
I love cruising on the pride I just want a different menu and clean looking towels and wash clothes. Please try and find different things to do on the boat. It's a old boat but you still can upgrade so things
All in all we had a wonderful time on our cruise. Weather was Beautiful and seas were calm. We did not let the little things bring us down, but in the future I will stick with Royal Caribbean for my cruises.
The cruise was overall OK. I hated the fact that I purchased bottomless bubbles and couldn't use it in room service. So when I had really bad motion sickness, I had to keep going to a bar to get ginger ale. That sucked!! I also didn't like how they automatically charged me for gratuity after I gave cash tips to who I wanted to have it. Then they charged my account $180 for gratuity at 3am like I wasn't going to notice when I got up. I really did not like that at all. They make enough money off of you to book the cruise. Also I didn't like how expensive the pictures were. One day the special was buy a canvas for 59.95 get a smaller picture free. I went to purchase the canvas, and they told me the free picture I got was the smaller version of the canvas picture. What sense does that make. Why would I want 2 of the same picture. I thought I could pick another photo that was taken. I guess you can say it was ok, but I'm not pressed to go back on Carnival. It was my honeymoon, and I felt like I spent as much money on the cruise as I paid to book the cruise just to get HALF of the things I wanted.
Had a ball and would go again anytime. Was a great cruise just to get away and cruise. Since we had been to the islands before this was not the biggest draw. We did get off in Nassau and bought a couple of sweat shirts at the straw market for the grand kids
We missed going to Grand Turk :( Weather was not the best for the cruise but we made the best of it. Unfortunately the entertainment was lacking, but again we made the best of it. Met some nice people that we will stay in touch with!
Although our cruise was changed due to hurricane Irma, we had a wonderful time. Carnival did give us the option for a credit to cruise on a later date, but was choose to still go to Canada. I would have liked to stop at another port in Boston, but we still had a good time!
This was my first cruise. My advice to anyone else going on their first is to choose a shorter one. It was smooth sailing except for one day. The boat rocked so much. I figured since I made it 5 days without getting sick I would be fine but I ended up with motion sickness. Be aware of that. It could hit you at any time.
We had great vacation , was our first cruise and ofsure we will do it again and again.
From the staff and the great support from the cruise team to make you happy and enjoying.
By the way The Chef Table experience it is a must , you will love the experience..
The trip was awesome. Staff were great. Able to see shows in the ship and it was spectacular. Only disappointment I have was the unorganized disembarkation. Passengers were sent to assigned spots in the ship that are too tight to accomodate everyone.
I'd choose Carnival again, for my cruising adventures. The entire experience was very pleasing and relaxing. I loved it. This was also my son's first time cruising and he really enjoyed himself. We'll see you again Carnival, in a few years.
