Overall the cruise was good.  There is always room for improvement.  Very pleased with the service and food plus everything was very clean all the time.


Didn't care much about Kevin, the cruise director.  He needed to identify himself at show time.  Acted as if everyone knew who he was.  He gave me the impression of a "fake" person.  The day that we could not visit Grand Cayman island, the one game he came up with in the 3rd floor lobby was to shoot people.   We have plenty of gun violence at home, there was no need to experience this while we are supposed to be having fun in a cruise ship.


Highly recommend that in the event of a change of itinerary due to weather, etc. that the captain be the one to speak to his guests and not the cruise director. 


Would appreciate it if Carnival would give some thought to offering cabins at a better rate for people travelling alone.  This one was very expensive for one person.

The shows were good, but wish they had more shows. The cruise director gave me the impression of a "fake" person, not too good. The night of the guest show, I don't think there was a need for the cruise director to participate, especially as a drag queen. There were kids in the audience. Special thanks to the Latin Fever band, Jefferson, Andres and Ladyo - Great music!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
In terms of cleanliness, the ship looked great at all times. The design was not of my liking, but then again art is art.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very pleased with the service received from Randy and his assistant, April. The cabin was good. The mattress needs replacement. The oceanview window was very dirty from outside. Was hoping it would get clean in one of the ports but that was not the case.

Ship Tip

I did try the Taste Bar. That was a nice little surprise.
Too many ship photographers taking photos.
