The Ship is Beautiful the Ports are industrial

Sail Date: September 23, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

I loved the ship but did not enjoy the industrial ports. I booked a balcony room to enjoy the arrival into each but was disappoint by each view. There were a couple of exceptions. I did love the fact that the ship was large enough to accommodate the number of people aboard and I didn't feel as though we were on top of each other,

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was fine...Not any nicer than any other ship in the carnival fleet.

The food is slipping from my last cruise in April and the desert menu was disappointing at best.

Don't pay for the Carnival Shuttle at $17.00 per person there is a free shuttle at the end of the street. It is a 3-5 minute walk and saves you money. Industrial port
