Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Generally a big Carnival fan, this ship was very nice inside but the exterior did not look like a recent refurbish.  The food was good but the variety was not there, dinner menu did not change much in only five days.  Formal night did not include Lobster without an up charge. For being after New Years there were lots of School age children running the halls and buffet unsupervised.  As for the Ports of call, Nassau amazingly never changes, with all the ships in port every day and no improvement in the infrastructure, next time we will stay on board.  Freeport was much nicer, should probably have that as a main stop in place of Nassau. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Room was clean and steward was great quite a bit of noise from the hallway probably too close to stairs and a lot of traffic.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Beautiful inside but exterior showed some wear.
Destinations and Excursions
Liked Freeport, Nassau has not improved in 10 years actually looks worse
Onboard Activities
Rained every day and they tried have indoor activities
Children's Programs
Comedians were great, dance show was very good
Service and Staff
The staff at the Taste bar serving Breakfast were great, the young lady at the coffee bar was way over worked but she was a trooper and maintained great attitude and worked as fast as she could
Food and Dining
Did not like upcharge listed on dining room menu every night
Port Canaveral, Florida
park off site cheaper and less of a walk from lot
Nassau, Bahamas
either go hang out at Atlantis or stay on the boat
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Went to the "shopping" village nicer than Nassau and a casino across the street.
