Review summary

Carnival changed ports because of hurricane damage and did not offer their customers any options for future booking, cancellation or cruise credits. I will never choose Carnival again.

No parking available in terminal D. Had to park in terminal C. Too much walking and lack of organization

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was terrible and drinks too expensive. All of the sides seemed to be the same every meal. First time I have seen charges for room service. Just stupid and greedy!

Onboard Activities

Pools were filled to the rim with wild children with no adult supervision

Cabin / Stateroom

Small cabin and balcony in comparison to other ships. Beds were too firm (hard as the floor). TV needs to have more channels and sleep timer.

Did no excursion because we weren't here long enough. Shopped at port.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

Tendered to shore. Not enough umbrellas. Sand removal showers were broken. Food line was over 45 minutes long. A lot of rocks off shore which hurt our feet.
