Review summary

This was my second cruise and my children first time cruising. My son danced the night away every night and won a medal from the crew. It was laid back for myself being a senior citizen but I participated in the excursion cave. Old ship but it was well kept and the captain was so sociable unlike the captain of my 1st cruise on the Liberty. It totaled surprised how active he was with the quest and wasn’t expecting the laid back attitude as stated the last cruise ship I saw the tail end of the captain leaving the Captain ball but it was stated he had emergency. The staff made the difference as supposing to a nuisance of the heavy drinkers he got a pass-lol. Gotta try Guys Burgers and the eggs Benedict, they’re so delicious the lines are limited on the hours and quite lengthy. Overall I’m on my 3rd cruise and we’re going with the cove balcony on the Vista! Can’t wait to get on that sky ride and that’s the kid coming out this overly active senior citizen. But I’m gonna be laid-back at the resort and do the ATV rough ride I’m Cozumel. Live your BEST life cruisers because you can’t get enough of the Carnival.
