Review summary

I’ve been on 4 other cruises with Carnival and this ship was the worst one. Very old and outdated and nothing to do especially while at sea. No big entertainments/shows. Deon the cruise director was amazing, young, energetic, and people friendly.

All the same, burgers were the best and the ice cream

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Activities we did was Trivia (sports) and Who’s smarter (men or women) only things interesting to do


1 out of 5
DJ Dawkness was good, the activity guy who did the Karaoke was good but other that those two nothing else was good. The worst part was that it had no sports bar for the men to watch the games especially on Sunday’s!

Children's Programs

No kids

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship was clean, but old and outdated.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Room always clean and the normal size, but the phone didn’t work and the safe only worked with my sail and sign card and not my husband’s. The bed was comfortable, but it kept coming apart in the middle of the night.

Ship tip

It’s an old ship 20+ years old! Try a newer ship
