Food was average. Poor customer service with the art department. The One guy from South Africa was quite rude. He made my trip uptight. I felt as if I was bothering him each and every time I went to get my free painting that I won. by fbent50

Enjoyed myself for the most part besides the scare of the man off board incident. Ship needs upgrades and better food and entertainment choices.

Fun in the sun by FunLiving

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall I had a fantastic time with my family. I enjoyed the adult area and dinning room experience. Please take control of the locals solicitation in Grand Turk. Even kids were out there selling the conch shells that are not allowed back on the ship. Some were renting used scuba equipment (Yuck).

The Best Cruise Yet by kmjones896

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise overall was fun and relaxing. The only downside was being on the ship for 3 days before we reached our first stop in Aruba. I will definitely choose a cruise that disembarks on at least the second day. I was really ready to get off of the ship by then. The staff, food and stops were great. I will return to Carnival for the value and service.

Overall, A Nice Cruise by dianahameister3

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall, enjoyed the 4 at-sea days. Ship is older and has some crowding issues. Also, cruising in August means a lot of kids on board...many running unsupervised. Be aware smoking is allowed in casino and staff is reluctant to tell someone not to smoke in the nonsmoking area of casino. Entertainment is mostly ship's staff of singers and dancers, but they were good. One show was a magician. No "big" name entertainers. Service in-room and Lido Marketplace was excellent.

Not like it used to be. by cornpop68

We enjoyed our time, however the ship was just too crowded. Carnival is definately better suited for families with small children. We spent a lot of time in our cabin and chose not to attend the nightly dinners.

Good Cruise After Rough Start by grakracker

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Started off rough. Room was not set up as two twins & steward argued with me when I requested that it be set up as two twins. When we showed up for dinner at the sunshine Restaurant, our table had been given to a group & the 4th Deck maitre 'd was very rude & uncooperative in setting us up with a table. I eventually got a table but was informed that I could not be guaranteed a table for the rest of the cruise. After dinner, I proceeded to Customer Service & after speaking with the Senior maitre 'd was told that I would be assigned to a table for following night (Monday). Again, when we arrived for dinner table was not available. Proceeded to 3rd deck of the restaurant. Maitre 'd (Shantos) seated us at a table & told us that we would be seated at one of the three tables for the rest of cruise. All was fine for rest of cruise. Not a very good start but ended up fine!
