Review summary

The cruise was okay but very boring on sea days. The entertainment was subpar and the food was satisfying.

Fat Jimmy's C Side BBQ

The bbq was okay but the sides were refrigerator cold. This was not the best place to eat.

Pizzeria Del Capitano

Carnival still has the best pizza at sea!

JiJi Asian Kitchen

Wonderful experience! the food was the best on the entire ship, to my surprise. It was well worth the $15.00 surcharge.

Onboard Activities

Cloud 9 Spa

1 out of 5

This was my worst spa day of any ship. My wife and I had the couple's swedish massage. The therapist would not add pressure at all, unless we paid more money. The massage therapist were more concerned in upselling than providing a great experience. Stay away, it's a waste of money.

Vista Casino

5 out of 5

This was the most popular event on the ship. It was very active and the casino host was very good. Had a time hanging out in the casino.

I felt that the stage shows were not as professional as on the RCCL ships. They were boring and lack stage presence.

Children's Programs

Our grandkids loved this place. They spent most of the crises at the camp and had an amazing time.

Service and Staff

My room Stewart named " I Made" was awesome. By far the best room Stewart I've ever had.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The carpet on the ship was very dirty to include my cabin. When I told my room Stewart, he gave our room a deep cleaning. Can't say the same for the rest of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

The carpet in my cabin was very dirty. When I informed the room Stewart, to my surprise, he gave my cabin a deep cleaning.
