My wife and I were extremely burnt out and were looking forward to the "disconnect" we needed a lot of rest and effortlessness and boy did we get it. Thank you carnival.

The Black Pearl Restaurant

Our servers, Yasa and Dio, were absolutely the best. We felt very cared for and enjoyed our conversations. The food has gone markedly since our last Carnival cruise. Every singe meal was more like a high-end restaurant than past trips. Way to go carnival.
