Review summary

It was a good cruise. It would have been better if it started off on the right foot.

Embarkation was a mess, due to weather we board 2 hours late. Galveston's fault not Carnivals!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
This isn't fair, the cleanliness is 5 stars, the ships design is meh. It feels cramped compared to the other ships I have been on. I was disappointed that one of the restaurants is one story and underwhelming, the restaurants are usually super fancy.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We stayed in an interior spa deck room. The room was very clean and well maintained. Spa deck ensure quiet and away from kids. As for the size, it is interior so it was small but okay.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

It doesn't matter is the is broken it shouldn't take 2-3 hours to decide how to get passengers on the ship, we sat on the floor for 2 hours. Should have had Carnival employees tell us to sit back down.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
