Cruise Photos

Cabin / Stateroom
Loved having a balcony and used the spa daily.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Missed instructions the first day which caused confusion, speaker announcements weren't easy to understand and easily missed if occupied, recommend more tv screens with rotating information in the elevator lobbies.
Ship Quality
Very clean, perfect if you like pink.
Destinations and Excursions
Loved them, only used Carnival once, but they made it very easy.
Onboard Activities
Which there were more options than just the "shopping" specials. Spa was less than friendly and too many restrictions on the coupons and anniversary gift card.
Children's Programs
Kids we saw seemed happy. Didn't use.
Show times and late dinner made shows unavailable or too late. Wanted more dancing, but it started after 12:30am most nights.
Service and Staff
Teddi did a great job!
Food and Dining
Loved having options and the chocolate event was amazing!
Miami, Florida
Enterprise offers a shuttle with car rental, which we used as we found cheaper air fare out of Ft. Lauderdale.
Cozumel, Mexico
You don't have to stick to the island, we took the ferry and enjoyed Tulum.
Belize City, Belize
You don't have to stick to the city, we flew to San Pedro and scuba/snorkeled with sharks and sting rays with plenty of time to spare!
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Little French Island was awesome!
George Town, Grand Cayman
Not much to offer, our family enjoyed the turtle excursion.


Be sure to bring a power strip, only one plug in the cabin and one in the bathroom which is only for razors.
