Review summary

Overall this was a great cruise. This is a large ship and was full. Still not overcrowded. Recommend the steakhouse. This time of year you are taking chances with weather. We had 60 miles an hour winds after leaving Cozumel and ship moved a little. Really enjoyed Tyler and Joelle who were their Country Singers in the Atrium .Overall I would recommend this cruise.

We Laid by the pool some. Really enjoyed the Overcomers movie. It was Christian and a pleasant surprise on the ship. This trip all movies in IMAX were either horror movies or a repeat of previously seen in May trip shows which were Pandas and National Parks. Do not do horror but recommend the other two.

This was slow. No fault to carnival. People were constantly going out of turn. Even though we purposely waited till last there were long lines at shuttle pick up.
