Great cruise! Even though ship is older the service was amazing especially main dining service led by Lady D. The ship was kept extremely clean!

Review summary

We had issues on our last Carnival cruise but Chise this cruise because of iteniary and dates to give them another chance. This ship was older as well but the crews friendliness and service was excellent! The ship was very clean and from the cruise director Alex, yonour dining room team headed by Lady D fun was all around. Entertainment was lacking with repeated shows from previous Carnival cruises and needed a better variety. Food was great and steakhouse was amazing. We would recommend this cruise a huge improvement from our Fall 2017 cruise on the Conquest.

Ship tip

It's an older ship but service and crew friendliness was the best we have experienced in a long time ! Fun cruise director with Alex and and our main dining crew was excellent headed by Lady D which made our evening meals so much fun! Entertainment was repeats of previous Carnival cruises, do definitely think that needs to improve. We tried steakhouse one evening for a special occasion and it was great!We would recommend this cruise.
