We had a great time. The entertainment on the first and second night however was not the best, the second night Las Vegas type show had no continuity or theme, just a lot of singing and dancing with no common theme other than scantily clad showgirl outfits.  The final show was terrific, it was cohesive and showcased the entertainment staffs talents not just their outfits!  We were in bad weather the first night, the ship was very rocky, not unbearable but many were seasick.  The captain did a great job considering the turbulent seas.  Food was good, service excellent, staff friendly and helpful.  The ship is an older one but it is very well maintained.  Carnival is always fun, that's the reason we always return to their cruise line.

Ship Quality
well maintained and clean
Food and Dining
lots of choices, if your choice wasnt the best the wait staff replaced the meal rapidly
Service and Staff
friendly and helpful
The lounge areas were way to loud. The main theater shows were 2 busts and 1 excellent
Children's Programs did not use
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
over priced and cheaper if booked off the ship
Cabin / Stateroom
Great location in mid ship, close to elevators for both front and rear of ship.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Not a beach goer, the shopping area is limited.
Nassau, Bahamas
Lots to do, see and enjoy


Always use your sail and sign in the casino for points even if only gambling for a brief time, If you plan on bringing alcohol on board for use in your cabin, make sure you put it in your carry on not your luggage, where it will be removed from your luggage and returned at the end of the trip.
