From start to finish this was a great cruise. All 11 of our cruises have been with Carnival and will continue to be unless a better bang for the buck can be gotten elsewhere.

Food was good not great but you can always find something to eat. The MDR wait staff were awesome. Enjoyed the Guys Burgers and the fish tacos on the Lido.

Everything was totally surreal. From the service to the food, everything was top notch. It is something we experience and will continue to experience every cruise.

Mongolian Wok

A really tasty make what you want food area. You will not be disappointed. The popularity of this venue is evident from the continuous line ups- worth the wait.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

Loved it. Good port to stay pre and post cruise to do some excursions or sample some of the local cuisine.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

5 out of 5
a great port. No need to go far to find a beach and a few drinks. Just hop on the water taxi and take a right once you get on the dock.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

My wife found this an awesome place to go shopping. we did a tour of the island and then some light shopping at the terminal.
