Review summary

Overall we liked the Cruise. It wasn’t as relaxing as we thought it would be since there were so many activities onboard. But there really were so many different options for food, fun and activities. The staff was amazing and worked very hard. Getting on and off the ship was such an organized process. We liked our ports - Key west (wish we had more then 1/2 day there) and Cozumel. I just wish there were shaded areas for lounge chairs.

Carnival was super organized. We got there 1/2 hour before our boarding time and didn’t wait in lines.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The pools are small and have no shade. But there are a couple areas that are more adult friendly. Serenity area was very nice with some shade.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
There is something for everyone. We enjoyed the comedy club, the variety shows and deck parties.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All the staff members were extremely friendly and helpful. They worked very hard to make sure we had a great cruise. Our steward Dewa even remembered our names every time we saw him!!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The layout was a bit confusing at first since the forward and aft of ship are separated by dining rooms so we had to take different elevators to our stateroom. The common areas were clean and well maintained. There was always a staff member clearing dishes & glasses or mopping the wet decks.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The room was much smaller than I thought it would be. But the space was used very well and we had room for all of our belongings. They gave us an extension cord so my husband could plug in his Cpap machine!!

Ship tip

We went on a 4 day cruise and it was a party atmosphere. If you want quiet ship go for a longer cruise. Also there is not any shade on the pool decks.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
We only had time for dinner the night before our cruise. We went to The River Oyster Bar which was amazing and in a cute part of the Brickell area.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
We loved Key West. We did the Trolley Tour which was a great way to see the town. Try the Key Lime pie at Kermit’s!!

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Loved Cozumel!’ We went to Paradise Beach for the day. Lots of shade, good food and service. Sandy beach but rocky water. There is also a pool. Then we went into cute but small downtown area.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We left our luggage out the night before and had breakfast in the morning. We are aired for the lines to clear. We got off the ship at 10 am and there was no line.
