Review summary

Old boat. Dripped nasty stank water on me in one of the lounges.. Had to shower.

this boat allure is that it goes to several islands over 11 days.


i really can't believe some of these islands are a call to port.


really dirty, rude locals, pushy, and carnivals excursions are expensive.

buy off the boat better excursions and cheaper. 


You out will have to deal with locals. Sometimes bearable.


i will not be on another carnival. It's cheap for family's and that might be the only allure.


deja vu is the live band which was a great time.

the rest is b budget.


the food is horrible around the buffet.. I mean yuk.


the taco stand, noodle bar, hamburger, and pizza was what we ate.

the dinners are good.

the steak house for $35 per was fanominal and a great deal!,,


the he back aft on lido 9 will cook eggs to order or an omelette.


theres no stabilizers on this ship so you will feel even little waves.

buy the oil rub for behind ears, take motion sickness pill from herb store and Dramamine if you even think you might get sick. 2 days before ship. A lot of people were sick first couple days.

Food and Dining

Craziest buffet ever on any cruise I've taken on carnival. Plenty of salad stuff and fruits. Food seems to be cold all the time.

Ship Quality

This is a stinky boat. When grey water leaks they just put a wet caution Sighns there.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was always clean, but you have to crap with one foot in the shower. Weird. Toilet is at a angle that you could crap and shave same time. The shower curtains don't block the water so your floor towel is soaked including the floor.

Ports of call

Grand Turk Island

Basseterre, St. Kitts Did not visit port

Train excursion. Stupid and expensive. Eat a big breakfast. You get on at 11 and served sweet punch and a cane coconut cookie. At this point your on a sugar spike and needing lunch but nothing. Horrible. And a rip off.

Castries, St. Lucia
