Review Summary

Great ports of call. Carnival did great job by switching up the order of ports to skirt storm Hermaine. On board activities were so so. Food was mediocre but service by staff was excellent. Ship was clean but got tired of having to cross thru the casino to get from one end of the ship to the other for shows. Smoky smell in casino needs addressed. Would recommend this cruise though.

Ship Tip

Guys Burger is a must for lunch. When you eat in the Lido go out to the Havana bar area for seat. Always places out there. Also try the pasta bar for lunch.

Didn't get to spend anytime exploring NYC. Next time! However be sure to be on port side up front of ship as you leave. Great view of Lady Liberty and the bridge! Also great view when you return. Get up early to see worth it!

Boston, Massachusetts

Didn't really care for our guide as he like to use swear words a lot. We also felt we didn't get to see several historical sites like Bunker Hill and Boston Commons and the Cheers Bar. After tour had plenty of time to explore the Market and walk some of freedom trail. Saw Commons on our own. Would have liked to have seen The Marathon finish site as well. Took cab back to ship. $20.00 for 4 people.

Just get excursion to Peggy's Cove early then just come back to harbor. Lots to see and do within walking distance of the ship. We did Peggy's cove in am the the hop on /off Would've liked more time at the Cove. However on hop off /on we got off at stop 6 and found Willman's Resturant fantastic chowder and fish and chips with local flair!
