Review Summary

We have been on a number of cruises. A bit disappointed in food selection. Also service for rooms has gone down. Once a day and not even thorough at that.

For some reason our boarding wasn't showing Platinum. When we told the Carnival agent directing people to the line she said "well they will just stop you up there". Anoither words saying we were liars!

Food and Dining

Just OK. Service wasn't great. Food choices were not as good as before. I need Gluten freee and 4 out of 5 dinners were incorrect.

Onboard Activities

They should be careful of overlap. On sea days they jam things together when they could have been spread a bit more. Too many sales pitches on the activity talk prior to going to the ports.

Shows were AWESOME. The singers and dancers were excellent. Loved the comedy shows, especiall Judy (Moms). Magician was also very good!

Service and Staff

They need to be a bit more welcoming. We had to ask our room steward a few times for things he had already said he was getting.

Ship Quality

The ship was very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Clean, good size and comfortable

Ship Tip

Pre order water and go to lido for breakfast. The omelet station is better than what you will get in dining room. Dinners are better in dining room.

Ports Of Call

New Orleans, Louisiana

Cozumel, Mexico

We did Xenses. Was a lot of fun but is not all inclusive like their other parks. Food was pricey. Took a while to get the boat tender to get us there.

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

5 out of 5
We did Mi Casa Su Casa. That was awesome! A good deal for the cost.

Organized but could space it out a bit moire to avoid lines down the gangway.
