very upset with April Rose security had a problem with my food and everything was taken care of without any one to notice waitstaff and personell went above and beyond April Rose and the other security I can not swallow, too embarrasing for just some t shirts and if she wasnt security this wouldnt of happened but because she is security she embarrssed us she used her job for embarrasing us. If a passenger had left their shopping bag on security check in no one would of went back to see video of who took bag. I didnt even know I had an extra bag with my shopping bags there as well, she forgot it and mine came out after, no one was in front of us we took our bags and went to our cabin like any of the passengers would of done

Bittersweet by mctim3569

Very disappointed that 3 hours into the cruise they completely changed the itenerary and cancelled the 2 ports I was excited for and replaced with 2 ports I had no interest in. Boat was fun as always, but this has left a bitter taste in my mouth.

Overall for a first cruise it was a wonderful experience. Everything from the embarking process, entertainment, Spa, the cleanliness of our cabins as well as the rest of the ship and the overall enthusiasm and service orientated nature of the entire staff, I had such a wonderful time to the point that I've already booked another Carnival trip for next year

Despite the first day not having any water and the ice cream machine and other things not working properly sometimes the overall experience was great. The cruise director Orlando and our dinner waitress Margarita made the cruise. They were the best workers on the ship. They made my first cruise a cruise that I will never forget in a good way.

HORRIBLE! by Lisa7777

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group
Wasnt inpressed. The people in photography were very insulting and unprofessional! They seemed to lack knowledge because they said as i quote “what are indians doing in dominican republic anyway”. How do you work for a cruiseline knowing they visit certain destinations knowing they take photos with people in costumes who represent the history of the island and our people and have the nerve to insult and make fun. Well it wasnt funny! I was very insulted and because of them ended my cruise w such a headache! And to be clear i wasnt upset about the mispelling because i understand it happens. What upset me was the ignorance and disrespect from these two people. Both of you should be ashamed of yourselves!

Not luxurious—subpar cruise line by bevsbmw

I mostly hated it. This was not the crowd of cruisers I was looking for. The meals tasted like I was eating cafeteria food and there were way to many noisy kids running the halls, AND the cruisers did not observe the dining code. This is NOT THE CRUISELINE for the Uppercrust...NOT LUXURIOUS AT ALL.

It was an overall good experience for a first time cruiser like myself. Somethings like food and entertainment needed some upgrading but it was a good vacation overall. I'd definitely do a cruise again, just a better ship.

I had such a wonderful time on this cruise. I will definitely sail with Carnival again. I enjoyed the dining experiences and their "showtimes". Orlando was a great cruise director and made each show fun.

As first time cruisers, we had a wonderful experience. by MichaelCruiser

As first time cruisers, we had a wonderful experience. Nassau and Half Moon Cay are wonderful ports of call. They are worthy of visiting again. Freeport is not a good trade with Grand Turk which was cancelled due to hurricane damage. All of the carnival excursions at Freeport were not open to this cruise. Fortunately the existing excursions were still good.

Nice Caribbean cruise by sgoldsmith99

The ship itself was old and not updated at all. I was given a card that said I earned a bottle of wine from the casino staff but no one knew who to go get it. So I never got the bottle of wine and I still have the card. The excursions were really fun and the people of the isovery friendly. Cruises are great fun but not on this ship.
