Review summary

This was my first carnival cruise and I actually enjoyed it. I've heard so many bad things about Carnival that I really considered cancelling the cruise beforehand. I'm so glad that I didn't. I had a good time and would definitely cruise carnival again.

Thrill Theater

5 out of 5

This was a spot we frequented regularly. We did most of the thrills and truly enjoyed it. It was $5.50 per person per thrill which lasted around 15 to 20 minutes each. But it was worth it to us.
