Review Summary

This was a newer ship than others we have been on. The weather was great and there were a ton of kids on this ship (it was spring break week). The carpets throughout the ship could use a serious cleaning. The meals for the main dinner were great as always!

Food and Dining

Lines were very long during peak times and did not move very quickly. Took about 20 minutes to go through the lines.

Carnivals bedding is great!! So comfy....makes me not want to leave the stateroom. We got an interior stateroom which is great for daytime naps....no light comes in!

Hung out at Margaritaville.....kids loved the water slide and pool there. It was a little overcast so we did some shopping and then enjoyed the quietness on the ship!

We just took a taxi to the beach for the day. Of course, you can't miss Margaritaville at any of the ports!!

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Hiking Dunn River Falls was great! We did the Sail and Hike. It was frustrating because we were almost held captive at the beach. There was no other shopping, dining, etc places around (I think it was a private beach owned by the shore excursion company) so we were kind of stuck paying their crazy high lunch prices!
Don't Miss: Next time I would just do the Dunn River Falls hike

Pros: Carnival does a great job as always....this was our third cruise in four years on Carnival

Cons: The lines at the food service places were quite long

Recommends Carnival Victory? Yes!
