Best Cruise Ever

Sail Date: January 24, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We have been cruisers with Carnival for over 25 cruises. This cruise was the very best in all aspects.,The friendliness of all the crew even the maintenance people working on the decks was exceptional..  Everyone had a greeting and smile everywhere we went on board.  The food was spectacular and the wait staff was superb as well.  They went far beyond what was expected of them.  Always greeted us by name, even with a full ship.  We had open seating which was really liked at mostly table 371.  I would recommend this ship and crew to anyone. 

We did the Rain Forest in San Juan which left a lot to be desired, would not recommend that to anyone.  We loved Jimmy Buffet's pool and beach in Grand Turk which was right at the end of the pier. I would recommend the snorkeling excursions there as well.  Beautiful reef with very vibrant colors there.

Grand Turk Island
Loved Jimmy Buffet's being at the end of the pier. The pool and beach was wonderful. We have done the snokeling excursion on othere trips to Grand Turk and love the colorful reef there.


The ship was very nice, but did not like going up and down to get to the dining rooms. I guess that has to be with the size of these ships. It was very clean and beautiful. Loved the specialty dining stations as well as the buffets.
