Review Summary

The ship was large and very clean. The crew was constantly making sure it was immaculate. The staff was very friendly and helpful, as always. Main dining room food was great with many choices and as many servings as you would like. Plenty of other dining choices. From the dancing waiters to the animal towels in our room, the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The entertainment was excellent and since we went a week before Christmas the ship was nicely decorated for the holiday. They even had a holiday show where all the children from camp carnival went on stage and sang songs. The casino was always booming and the pool slide was a big hit. There was lots of shopping and swimming in the ports. All the ports were very nice. On our last Carnival Cruise the waiters in the main dining room put on a show every night and I looked forward to it. On this cruise there were only 3 nights that the servers performed and although they did a great job I wanted more. Also, prior to sailing we were told we would get refunded our fuel charge with an onboard credit but once onboard we did not receive it which is disappointing. Overall highly recommended!!!!

Food and Dining

Loved the main dining food. I was surprised and delighted to find out that my favorite dessert (Warm chocolate melting cake) from our last Carnival Cruise was still offered on this cruise.

The singers and dancers were great. The costumes were good. Carnival brought onboard a magician and two comedians for variety.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our waiters at dinner were the best!!!!!!!!! :) All other staff was good too. One evening we were on the lido deck playing cards and our one waiter from the main dining room was working the buffet that evening. He took the time to come over and perform a card trick. He really went out of his way to make this trip unforgettable for us! I greatly appreciate all he did that week and I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. :)

We had an oceanview room for the 3 of us. It was spacious and very nice but we spend very little time in our cabin. The cabin was cleaned twice a day! Loved the towel animals!!

Pros: Spacious cabin, Phenomenal servers, Beautiful Ship :)

Cons: Having to Come Home !
