Had a great time!

Sail Date: November 04, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was very clean and the crew were friendly and helpful. One of the dining rooms was in the center of the ship, which made access around it difficult (you had to go up or down stairs to get around it). The food was very good with many choices given on the menu and on the buffets. The debarkcation at the ports and leaving the ship were handled efficiently. The tours offered were varied and reasonably priced. The entertainment was very good, both in the lounges and in the theater, although the lounges got quite smokey. We had an outside stateroom (no balcony) which had plenty of storage space and was adequate in size for 2 or 3 people. The ship could use more bathrooms and/or have better signs directing to them; they were hard to find. The drink of the day specials were very good (including the martinis) and more reasonable priced than other alcoholic drinks. We had a couple other small complaints-- They need to enforce the "no reserving deck chairs" policy. Almost all chairs by the pool were being "reserved" but were often empty. Also there were too many photograph sessions set up and too many roaming photographers. Overall we had a great cruise and would cruise Carnival again.

Pros: Beautiful ship, good food, friendly crew

Cons: Difficult to find bathrooms.
