This was a great bargain for all that Carnival has to offer. The service was great, the buffets were unbelievable and had a lot of options for even the pickiest eaters. The food in the main dining room was not as good, but we went to dinner most nights because they matched us up with the best group of people we could have met and developed new friendships. There were different shows each night which were very entertaining. There was an endless list of activities that everyone could enjoy. This cruise had 700 children on it, but because of the activities and "Camp Carnival," you'd never know it!

Not only the on board activities, but the shore excursions they offered were great deals.

Although we don't have children, the activities and staff did a great job at keeping the children on board occupied.

Very friendly, hard working and always looking to help out.

Ship Quality

Our room was cleaned top to bottom twice a day, and the entire ship was spotless!

Immaculate, spacious and all the basic necessities were available if needed. There was also a laundromat on each deck which is great if you don't want to pack a lot.

Pros: Service, entertainment, food, accomodations

Cons: dining room food
