Bad weather-nice trip

Sail Date: February 06, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This ship was comparable to the other Carnival ships we've been on.  The décor on this ship was a little more eclectic but still an attractive ship.  The entertainment was good although they did not have a show every night.  The food was very poor the first night but the rest of the nights was good.  The crew was not overly friendly.  All of the room stewards always spoke when you walked down the hall; however, we never saw our room steward the entire trip - which was very odd.  They played a lot of Trivia which was nice if you enjoy Trivia.  We were cold on the ship the entire time we were on it.  We had unseasonably cold weather which didn't help matters.  I do not think the ship has heat - only lesser degrees of A/C.   

Cabin / Stateroom Fairly room and had plenty of storage space.

Beware of the coupon book they try to sell on board the ship. Their sales pitch is misleading and the book is not worth $25.

Port Canaveral, Florida

Belize City, Belize Jaguar Zip lining and cave tubing was great! It's a long ride to the excursion but you get to experience a little more of the country of Belize.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Not all shops are tax and duty free - beware!
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
