Review Summary

This was good if you were just interested in the ports and a comfortable ship. The entertainment was lacking and the food was sub par.


5 out of 5
Embarkation was pretty smooth, we had a shuttle from our hotel Last Quinta Inn, we were at the port by around 11:00 am. We were on the ship before 12:00. It was quicker than expected, no waiting.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
We didn't do specialty dining because the food in main dining room and buffet was so poor we didn't think it could get much better with specialty dining. We had exceptional food on Carnival Splendor last year we were expecting so much on this trip and were so disappointed.

Onboard Activities

We didn't do much as there wasn't much exciting things to do.

Ship Tip

The ship is in very good condition, was expecting more wear and tear but was pleasantly surprised.

Ports Of Call

Seattle, Washington

2 out of 5
The public market was very crowded, we were staying near the space Needle and had planned to visit but was turned off by how old and dilapidated it looked, didn't seem worth it to visit. We walked around town, which was pretty clean and walkable but it didn't seem like there was much to do.
