Review summary

Overall the cruise was so much fun!! we truly enjoyed our first cruise together. the menu options in the main dining room were so fun to try out the adventurous items. Never ending buffets were tough on our diets but we couldn't complain! Overall the cruise was so much fun!! we truly enjoyed our first cruise together. the menu options in the main dining room were so fun to try out the adventurous items. Never ending buffets were tough on our diets but we couldn't complain! We are already looking into where our next cruise destination will be with Carnival. Loved the elegant nights as well, it was fun to dress up together and take photos.

Service and Staff

The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because one of the waiters in the main dining room on our first night was not friendly and rushed my boyfriend and I to order. Did not allow us to ask questions and barely spoke to us but was overly friendly to other neighboring tables. We had the same waiter later in the trip and he was friendlier but it was a tiny bit off-putting. Room stewards were so kind and helpful, all other ship personnel at the main dining and buffets were very nice and accommodating.

the size of the room was good. Enough space to move around and the added couch was a nice bonus. Shower was very very small but totally workable. My only comment on the room would be to upgrade the rooms with bigger tv's.

Ship tip

Remember to bring your reusable water flask(hydroflask) it's a real convenience you won't regret.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
The entire process went very smoothly. My boyfriend and I were disembarked only with an hour of waiting while eating our last breakfast at the buffet. It would have been more helpful if there were some signs around the elevators to clarify which elevators are correct to take down to the 3rd floor to disembark. We took the wrong elevators and then had to go back up to another floor that goes across.
