Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Extremely disappointed, We ate in the Steakhouse the first evening. We got all dressed up to meet the dress code. When we got there, several diners were in shorts and ball caps. So much for an elegant dinner that we had to pay for. It felt like we were at the local Denny’s restaurant.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We did several activities. Most included Kevin and Georgia, who by the way amazed us. They made us feel like a part of their family. Activities included... Pool, Bingo, gambling... Fun and enjoyable.


5 out of 5
Shows were great, Honoring Veterans, Rock show, Adult Scavenger hunt, Hasbro... Very entertaining and we had a blast.

Children's Programs

No children, but it was great seeing young children with their parents having fun.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

Our room was great. We have no complaints. Our Steward, Mr Yudana did an excellent job cleaning and maintaining our room. Whenever he saw us, he always asked if we were comfortable and needed anything.

We had visited here before and decided to stay on board. But the excursion we did was listed on the Carnival web site. Visiting the Mayan ruins and swimming in a Cenote.
