Fantastic Ports of Call

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

This is our fourth Carnival Cruise and once again they did not disappoint. The ports of call were all wonderful, except maybe Puerto Rico. Everyone on St. Maarten, St. Kitts, and Grand Turk were the friendliest we've ever come across. We enjoyed our stay on the ship very much. Housekeeping was top notch. The boat was clean although our balcony had signs of rust. The only disappointing thing was the food. It's just not what it used to be, but still adequate. The entire staff on our ship were super nice and bent over backwards to help in anyway they could. We would definitely take this exact same cruise again, and would travel on Carnival again.

Cabin / Stateroom
Loved the suite. Very roomy compared to a regular room. It's our first time to have a balcony, and we will get a balcony from now on, but in a regular room. The suite was great, just a little pricey for next time.

Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
We went to the main show only one night....weird...that's all I gotta say.
Service and Staff
Top notch. We loved our housekeeping guy, Jamie.
Food and Dining
The dining room food is not what it used to be. The Lido deck food was fine, but it is not available like it used to be. Lines were closed often, and choices limited.


Whatever you do, get a balcony. It made the cruise entirely different from when we've just had a window.
