Review Summary

Very relaxing and fun. Will do again. I was surprised and feel like Carnival has stepped it up. We had booked this to take our 2 adult daughters with a limited time frame. This ship and ports worked for us. Everything from the cabin, food and entertainment was a pleasant surprise.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
I never do the buffets. The main dining rooms were really good.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The shows were good. The pools could have been better. One of them was closed, liked the adult deck but was always crowded.

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
I could tell some cut backs in room stewards but this is not a problem. We got everything we needed in a timely manner.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Seemed to be an older ship but had been redone and was very nice and clean

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was excellent. Size was good and I always recommend doing the balcony, well worth the money.

Ship Tip

Always do the main dining even at breakfast, had some really nice surprises such as filet and eggs for breakfast. If you go on a short cruise, just take your luggage on and off the ship yourself, this makes it so easy with no waiting.

Ports Of Call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

Key West, Florida

3 out of 5
No excursion, I visit there often so no need to explore. This stop should be longer, was not much time if you wanted to see the city.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Very nice. One of my favorite.

This was so much better. We carried off our luggage and made it so easy. And love the easy checking out with showing ID only.
