Ship Quality
One of the largest in Carnival Fleet. Good size. Very clean. This crew worked very hard to keep neat. The decor was beautiful.
Food and Dining
Formal dining was excellent. Wait staff impeccable. Friendly, prompt and cheerful. Had a table with good privacy but could not see the shows put on by the staff without getting up (small price to pay for the privacy). Food was good, and plenty of it. There is a seafood buffet but the open hours are infrequent so missed it often. Should have more choice of soft drinks (included ones). Breakfast was great. Choice of buffet or served in dining room.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin stewardess was awesome. Polite, friendly and hard working.
Service and Staff
WOW, was this staff and crew GREAT! We feel like some of the were our friends.
Most shows were great. A couple not so much. Previous Carnival cruise loved all shows. The Valor dancers were the best. A couple special guests a little lame but somewhat entertaining anyway. Its a job I can't do.
Children's Programs
Had 3 kids with us all in different age brackets. They each had fun within the respective programs. Thanks Carnival.
