I played every Bingo game along with my travel party. It was very entertaining.


5 out of 5
I only saw one show while on the ship and it was just "okay". The singers did an amazing job, but the show itself didn't keep my attention the whole time.

Children's Programs

Did not have a child in my travel party

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Every employee I can into contact with was very pleasant and helpful with the exception of the female employee at the Future Cruise desk. I do not remember her name other than that she was from Bulgaria. She acted as though we were bothering her when we wanted to book a future cruise. Obviously we opted not to return to her so now we're having to book our future cruise on our own. I did have the pleasure of meeting the Captain. He was very kind and excited that it was my first Carnival cruise.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
This was my fourth cruise, first with Carnival. This was the smallest ship I've cruised and the oldest. I thought the ship was beautifully decorated, and Carnival has done a great job with the upkeep.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was very well maintained. There was just a minor issue with some water flowing onto the bathroom floor which was resolved. The room location was excellent.

Ship Tip

Just remember that it's an older ship, however, it's beautiful. There are a lot of activities onboard. I would recommend participating and having fun!

Ports Of Call

New Orleans, Louisiana

4 out of 5
There was not a lot to see at the port, but it was very interesting cruising down the Mississippi River.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Cozumel has a very beautiful port with some really neat shops! I enjoyed interacting with the locals. They were all very nice.
