Review summary

The food outside the dining room sucked! Our closets reeked of cigarette smoke and transferred onto all our clothes! Yuck! We're non-smokers! We bought the Cloud 9 Spa Package and both of us got a terrible upper respiratory infection from one of the steam rooms, where there was a ceiling panel hanging loose! Perfect place for bacteria to grow! We're still suffering from this infection and it hurts to breath! The best part of our cruise was our Cabin Attendant I Putu. He made our trip nicer than it was! We heard rumors that Carnival was selling the ship to China after our cruise! The ship is in poor condition. I am disabled and slipped on the black tile they have that seems to absorb oils but no other tIle did this! We won't be doing a Carnival Cruise again!

The Black Pearl was OK, but everywhere else was not up to par! Definitely not top of the line I expected!

The Comedians were 2nd rate and about as funny as a screen door on a sunmarine! The Casino stunk so bad of tobacco we didn't want to go near it or 2 floors up or down! It stunk!

The cabinet & closets reeked of tobacco smoke and stunk up our clothes! I'm allergic to tobacco so guess how much I enjoyed it! Terrible experience!

Ship tip

Don't do it! Definitely not worth the money! Carnival Cruise line has their hand in your pocket everytime you turn around after paying 2,200 for the room!

Ports of call

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Carnival has agreements with the vendors and try to focus you towards their vendors due to the Kick backs they receive!

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic
