Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Main dining room never fails to exceed expectations. However, our group of 2 couples weren't seated together. It error was rectified quickly but we noticed that several groups had the same issue. Luckily ours was small so finding a new table wasn't too difficult. First time this has happened but it was strange just how many people were in the same situation.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Didn't get to participate in much Trivia but the ones we did we enjoyed. Need more on sea days and less on port days

The best ensemble talent we've ever seen!

Children's Programs

No kids this trip and our kids are too old.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
John our room steward was amazing. We had a couple of maintenance issues that need fixing and he got them sorted significantly faster that we thought possible.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I thought the buffet seating felt cramped, more walls less open concept. Made it really hard to scan the room to find our group.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
As expected. But the veranda (far to large to be called a balcony) was out of this world. It was nearly impossible to get my husband out of the swing!

Ship tip

Book the Havana room. You won't regret it!

Spent the day at Rendezvous Caye, small private island in the middle of the ocean. Absolutely amazing, will be heading back next time we sail in!

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Did the Ultimate Aventure Combo: ziplining and suspension bridges, great time had by all! My husband got to try live termites, peppery cilantro-who'd a guessed.

We got stuck on the wrong side of the closed shipping chanel, not Carnivals fault but we didn't disembark until noon and the only food available was the ice cream machine, coffee, tea, juice machine or water.
