Had a wonderful time but did miss out on the sky ride because it was closed for maintenance. 😥

We had Faster to Fun so other than the porter damaging our daughter's new suitcase everything else went fast I took maybe 15 minutes to get on the ship and that's because we stopped to take a family picture.

We really enjoy the main dining room every night as well as brunch on sea days. Great food and service. We have no complains on any of the other specialty restaurants or buffets.

Other than the elevators taking forever and being a little warm the ship was very clean and very beautiful.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had 2 great balcony cabins on the Lido deck with the best steward named "Ranil" he was so friendly and patient with the kids. He did a wonderful job keeping the cabins super clean.

Ship tip

Have fun and explore the ship.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

Would have given it 5 stars if it work for the people that work outside the port the security guards not knowing how to direct traffic as well as the Porter who wanted to just make extra money by piling on the luggage and tying 1 of our new luggage to his cart and dragging it. When we received it it was torn from the bottom. Carnival was very helpful and even gave us a new suitcase.

Cozumel, Mexico

This was our 1st time using faster to fun we weren't certain how it would worked for disembarkment but apparently you are not to place your luggage outside your cabin door the night before, you have to bring your luggage with you when disembarking in order to get off before everyone else. Now we know.
