Sail Date: July 19, 2009
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)

Review SummaryNice boat w/ nice American history theme. Nice public areas. Too many kids running around. Teens were obnoxious late at night running around. Kids had good time though. Nice ports of call. Staff overall is very nice and attentive. Our first Carnival cruise. Definitely does not compare to Royal Carribean but good value for $$$. Be very aware of where your stateroom is located. We were just below teen disco and the loud thumping every night until midnite was a bit much. Plus don't get room close to elevators/stairs either.
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Shopping is awesome.
Don't Miss: Stingrays. Got to hold it once I got over my fear.
Don't Miss: Tabyana Beach
Pros: Staff, cleanliness, cost
Cons: Too many uncontrolled kids running around, esp. teens
