Review summary

It was the best cruise we made so far. And it was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, with our 3 children. Beautiful ship. Very friendly staff. Abundant shows and entertainment of great quality. Lose weight before boarding, too much delicious food!

Embarkation process was quite fast, in less than 20 minutes we were on board (check in at the airport)

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the food in the main diningroom, in the buffet and in the specialty restaurants (at the right price), as well as burgers, burritos, pizzas, room service, etc. The food was well prepared, the portions were good and could be repeated without problem.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Our deck was 5, for Havanna cabins, with direct and exclusive access to a pool and two hot tubs. It is the best experience on Carnival ships. We went to the IMAX cinema (fantastic), we enjoyed all the shows in the theater, the Arcade games and the casino a bit. We also use the gym. The Skyride was broken the entire trip, it was the only disappointing thing.

On this ship, there are musicians performing simultaneously, in different areas. Very good artists DJs are good too. A pleasure for the ears

Children's Programs

Our children are older

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was always very friendly, gentle, very willing to help. Our greatest thanks to all of them for their commitment to guests.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We liked the layout and design of the ship. Lighting decoration and excellent furniture. All common areas very clean. It is a boat with two years (in 2018), with excellent maintenance.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our room was a Havana Cabana with a balcony. The balcony really is a small patio (4 to 5 times larger than a standard balcony). Very clean and very comfortable.

Ship tip

Spend a little more, but do not hesitate to stay in the Havanna cabins (decks 5, 6 and 7). Only 60 cabins can access the pool and the 2 hot tubs.
