Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We ate at the main dining room each night, the food was excellent. The Lido buffet was good, but food tasted very salty at times. The Pizza Pirate was delicious and Off The Grill had very good burgers and fries. We went to the tea two of the three days it was offered, and we all really enjoyed it. The views and delicacies were worth taking time out of the day to enjoy.

Onboard Activities

I wish hot tubs were hotter, they were more warm than hot. My husband enjoyed the gym.

We went to the Punchliner Comedy Club and loved that. The entertainment was fantastic. The singers were phenomenal. We enjoyed the Lipsynch battles. Everything we went to was really entertaining.

Ship tip

I would recommend purchasing bottles of water to have prior to arrival on carnival website. Go to the shows and enjoy yourself. Try a prosciutto pizza at pizza pirate. Eat a cone at swirls. Have fun!
