Having gone on Carnival twice before with no problems, I was let down by the quality of the buffet food and breakfast items on this cruise.  We picked this cruise for the Ports, which were all great!!!

I have to hand it to the staff, their service was excellent!!  The waiter and room staff knew our names by the second evening and when they passed us on the cruise ship, they would say hello to my wife and I and call us by our first names.  That was a huge plus!!

Having very few children on this ship, an earlier adult night in the comedy room would have been a great idea.

Was above the casino and live music until midnight every night!!!

Ship Tip

Do not stay above the casino in na guest room. The live music, noise, and smell of smoke was no a pleasant thing to go to sleep by.

CJ gave us a private jeep tour which was awesome. Took us places that regular people from the cruise ship dont get a chance to see often.
