Review summary

Although there were a few 'hiccups' on this cruise, I will always cruise with Carnival Cruise. On the Lido deck, the soft drink dispensers (just before you entered the inside dining area) seemed to be leaking quite a bit a water. Although the crew members were working feverishly to correct the situation, it still leaked water during the entire cruise. And there was a small metal grate just as you stepped out from the hot tub up by the Serenity area that was very slippery. Guy's Burger are the best. I ate more cheese burgers (and fries) in that one week than I've eaten in the past 25 years. My favorite moments were sipping coffee with a good book catching the sun rises. I loved the buffet style breakfast. The hot tub experience was awesome. The cruise ship was very comfortable (our cabin was right under the cheese burger station). In fact, the food was great. Overall, I loved the experience (the carefreeness) and can't wait to do it again next year.

Small, but nice (compared to my sister's cabin on the Dream last year).

Ship tip

Eat the food. Sit in the hot tub. Be sure to travel with good friends and enjoy the conversations in the carefree atmosphere. Do the balcony cabins.

Last year, after my 1st cruise, I said this ship was a done deal. And so it was.
