Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We had an awesome time on our cruise, there were some weather issues that caused some of excursions to be canceled but that is mother Natures doing. not the cruise ship. Otherwise we had a blast!! meet some awesome people from all over the country and had a great time partying with them. We highly recommend a cruise to anyone. Something I think everyone should do at least once and then you will hooked.

Cabin / Stateroom
We got a balcony, first one, and it was sooo nice to be able to sit out there and enjoy the view. Our steward Angelito was great and friendly, and accommodating, he let us change our turn down service and room was always clean when we came back. Awesome job!!!!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
This is the only part of a cruise I don't really care for, I do have to say - that getting on board was smoother then our first cruise with Norwegian. Getting off - was a little scary for my other half. because of the custom ring we ordered we were red flagged and only told to step aside that custom official would be there to escort us off the ship. We were not told why we had to wait, but that is a bit worrisome and stressful when your told that. Suggestion would be to relive passengers worries. but due to this we were led through lines we would have had to wait in. so kind of good thing in disguise.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Couple of excursions were canceled due to weather, but the cruise ship did everything they could to handle the issue & did a great job at it.
Onboard Activities
Unless you count shopping as an activity, Jasmine started with us and was so helpful and directed us to where we need to go and who to see. Valerie (Val) helped us both open up a Carnival MC and then assisted with our bill being placed under the new cards and with a purchase - You need someone like her on your new ship The Vista? it looked awesome, cant wait to take a cruise on it. Now in the gift shop - we were greeted by a very handsome man named Damien and he assisted us by showing us jewelry, ( we came back several times.) also assisted by Koena she was helpful in the shop, as well as Sean from Kallati - we custom ordered a ring from him along with Keona's assistance, such a pleasure shopping in the jewelry store. you have some really great people working for you in the gift shop.
Children's Programs N/A
The shows we saw were great, the cruise director Saffie does an awesome job!! had our pic. made with her.
Magic show - wow!!!
One suggestion on the Burlesque show - there were a lot of ladies in the audience and some flamboyant gentleman and there should be at least be one male dancer in the show. we tipped all the ladies and Sam the magician assistant. fun!!
Service and Staff
Service & staff were great and friendly!!
Food and Dining
The food was very good and many choices, kudos to your Beautiful Bartender Candee in the Casino bar - so talented at her job! my drinks were always delish. and she remembered me and my drink, pretty impressive for so many people on she is beautiful,tell her James & Thomas said hi!!
Cozumel, Mexico
Progreso (Merida), Mexico

Everyday we went and had one of the burgers from Guy's burger joint. The ringer was our favorite.
