Review summary

Outstanding cruise! I highly recommend Carnival.

Embarkation

2 out of 5
This was however beyond Carnival's control. Out explanation was that it was a problem with Customs disembarking the previous passengers which resulted in boarding delays and the large line of people backed up from their originally scheduled boarding. Talking with cruise passengers who cruise frequently usually embarkation is smooth and efficient.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All around great. Our cabin stewardess was exceptional and she went out of her way to make sure we were having a great experience.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I thought it was good. It was set up to keep the flow of traffic clear and it was easy to get places and find things. The staff was constantly cleaning and on top of keeping the ship spotless.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was great. There were four of us in our cabin and we were comfortable.

Ship tip

Get the chat plan to keep in touch with friends and family on the ship.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida Did not visit port

We went directly to the ship and from the ship to the airport.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
We did a private tour we arranged after we got off the ship. It was a lot of fun.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
Beautiful beach. The lunch was great and Carnival had the bbq set up so everyone could easily get food with a long wait. We did not do an excursion.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Another beautiful beach. We did not do an excursion.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
We especially enjoyed this port. We did an excursion arranged on the ship prior to the port call. The excursion was Outback Dominican Adventure with lunch and it was outstanding! Our tour guide was Eddie Murphy and our driver was Miguel and they were both great. They were very knowledgeable and made our trip great. I highly recommend this excursion.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Very easy and efficient. I definitely recommend getting the Mobile Passport app as it would make the process of getting through customs and immigration even easier.
