Review summary

I will not be cruising Carnival again- I prefer higher quality food and service. There were also unruly guests and a lot of pot smoking. I would only sale on a newer ship. I had a lot of fun despite Carnival’s shortcomings- but I was expecting more!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
The food was not very good - some of it was completely inedible. Quantity over quality!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Pools and hot tubs were extremely crowded and overrun with kids - they need a dedicated adults-only pool. Activities were plentiful and some were a lot of fun! Cruise director was very energetic!!

Comedy shows and deck parties were a lot of fun!

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Service was very good but nothing memorable

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
The crew tried very hard to keep things clean but guests were slobs. The ship was recently refurbished but still shows signs of wear.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
The cabin was clean however, I booked for three adults - two beds and one sleeper sofa - the sleeper sofa is very hard and designed for a small child. I didn’t sleep well the entire cruise!

Ship tip

Choose another cruise line if you prefer higher quality food and service.
