Nice casino.If you are a smoker only certain places you can  smoke. no on the balcony.Our inside room on the 7th floor quiet.not very big but adequate. showe r  and room to move in the bathroom. boat clean only its fifth voyage .entainment  carnival dance team okay.I have seen better. good food on the lido deck, many choices. Horzins rest serves any time dining. If you get a team that you like you can request the same waiter. Any time dining worked for us. some good meals several dishes on menu multiple nights. steakhouse a delight. a fine dining establishment.Guy Fieri burger joint Free Great burgers.Seafood shack good. Clam strips.Pizza 24hrs was good.Didnt try other restaurants. Servers near pools not good. not enough staff. even a some bars had to wait. A port intensive trip with wonder stops,

Food and Dining
Not a bad meal. Some really good. many repeat items on menu. A lot of different food to try. Lobster tail, veal parm, Flat iron Steak Salmon all very good. you could upgrade to a higher prem steak from the steakhouse with a 20 dollar charge which my husband did. so worth it
Marseille (Provence), France carnival excursion to lavender fields a great tour
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy carnival excursion pisa and beach. Not enough time at pisa and too much time at the beach. carnival area at beach wasn't beach front. the resort was very nice
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Get narration with English speaking guide
Naples, Italy go to Pompeii e arlyi as it gets hot. Amalfi coastline magnifent this time of yr with flowers a bloom. Like a postcard. carnival excursion
Iraklion (Heraklion), Crete
booked a tour thru viator buggy ride in the mountains Only take 14 people in one trip. worth every dollar I spend. atv buggy. Great food in the mountains
Rhodes, Greece beach. nice place. Had a wonderful 25min massage for 25 euros on the beach under our umbrella
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
great place to get some deals . They do want you to come into their stores to buy. you can take this in short doses. grab a lunch at a outdoor restaurant and enjoy
Piraeus (Athens), Greece acropolis day and night. currently has scaffolding up.


this boat doesn't compare to previous carnival ships I have been on. this is truly family friendly with the lastest of technology there are some upcharges.
