Okay for a long weekend

Room Type: Inside

The shorter Carnival weekend cruises tend to be party, party, party, which was fine for us but I did feel bad for the few families on board.  Old boat and it shows but the crew is friendly and the dining room food was tasty.  Nice for a quick getaway if you live close to Port Canaveral.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Great crew taking care of the rooms. Beds are old and hard but our cabin person added extra cushion. Room was clean. Note
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
The Nassau Balmoral Excursion is awful. Save your money for a cab ride to cable or cabbage beach which are both beautiful. Balmoral is overpriced for what you get. Drinks and food prices are ridiculous. It is cheaper to drink on the cruise ship if you can believe that!

Food and Dining
Port Canaveral, Florida
Nassau, Bahamas
Nassau is a great port to do your own thing. Plenty of beaches, stores to walk around. Not really worth an excursion.


Note a relatively new rule that will no longer allow you to bring any drinks in plastic containers including water. Can still bring soda or water in cans.
