Seems good is going down hill. I have food allergies and in the past have been able to eat around it but this cruise has a lot more issues with tomatoes and beans being in dishes with no alternatives

Ship Quality

Seemed run down for such a young ship with several things in disrepair. Sign on lido tore from swirling and almost fell

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Not only did we have noise from dining room below but we had noise from Havana bar itself. Would not recommend this room at all. Lots of movement. Private Havana area seemed still crowded on sea days. The cabins on deck 5 and 3 are a money grab and they should have been used for bigger public spaces

Ship tip

Book another ship. Between the tiny public areas, ac issues, noise issue and not working parts there are much better carnival ships to travel on

Ports of call

Cozumel, Mexico

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Worst disembarkation ever for Galveston. The director (kyndall) called upper floors before lower floors which caused issues with elevators. Platinum zones weren’t called till almost 10 am
