Review summary

We had a blast and can’t wait to go back! We have already booked another carnival cruise for our late honeymoon this December. This cruise gave us the cruising bug and it will hook other first timers too!

It didn’t take as long as I expected! Definitely getting faster to the fun next time though!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I loved all the food! Especially the Tandoori place!!! The dining rooms were really pretty!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
There wasn’t too much to do that was free. The pools were great. Getting to go in the hot tubs was hard as they were always packed.


5 out of 5
The stage shows were really fun! And the deck parties were very lively!

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Staff was great! Our room steward was awesome and very kind! Our dining room waiter had a bit of an attitude so that was annoying.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean, easy to navigate and interesting designs.

Cabin / Stateroom

Shared this cabin with another couple. So it was 4 of us. Wish we knew there was bunkbeds instead of a pull out couch. But we made it work.

Ship tip

Explore every nook and cranny you can! There are a few hidden spots on this ship where there aren’t a lot of people :)

We had a great time in Honduras! We got a taxi that took us around the island. We got to spend the day at a resort and had the best chicken I’ve ever had!

Belize City, Belize

3 out of 5
Not much at this port. The shopping was minimal and a bit sketchy.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Shopping was fun! And we got some great pictures at the beach!

We were sad to leave but disembarkation wasn’t hard at all. We stayed for breakfast and walked off the ship.
