Don't expect too much!

Room Type: Inside

When getting a deal like Carnival gives, you get what you pay for, not much. Carnival will use any and every opportunity to nickel and dime you. Almost felt harassed by staff continuously trying to sell something. Food is ok, but nothing to write home about.  Desserts are all but tasteless. If you go, just know what to expect and you can enjoy yourself in the ports of call. The best staff is the Housekeepers.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Housekeeper was wonderful, always pleasant and would go out of her way for her guests.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation: It appeared it was the first time a cruise ship left that port. Very unprofessional. Disembarkation: Good, very smooth.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Ship entertainers were on the level of high school drama shows.
Service and Staff
Housekeeper was wonderful, rest of staff left something to be desired.
Food and Dining


Make dinner reservation for early or late seating. If you choose My Time Dining, you wait in line until a table opens. You don't really get to pick a time.
