Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

WEll overall i think the ship was small. Which was okay cause we didn't lose each other that often. The biggest thing to us was that because the boat was the smallest in the carnival fleet it was not HANDICAPP ACCESSIBLE. our younger sister did not have as much fun as she would have. the reviews about this ship were quite accurate. I also saw that there were a few thing that did not work properly like one of the hot tubs and well i think they should have had that fixed.

Pros: I loved the places we visited... and the friendly staff. also they weren't bad to look at either!! lol

Cons: The boat was not handicapp accessible. it was horrible how my younger sister who is handicapp could not do anything with us like play golf or be at the camp carinval room. We were very upset to find out that they not only did not try to accomidate her but they made no extra effort to work with us.

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED)? No.

Children's Programs
they were the worest!!! all the parents complained because the parents had to pick up there kids and take them to the next activity room! appartently for some reason they were understaffed for the camp carnival and i mean why even bother putting them in the camp carnival we could have just looked after them ourselves.
Food and Dining
The dining and food was excellent. The chef catered to us because my parents ate mainly indian food. the chef was great!!! we really apperciated that they did that much for my parents and food was awesome!!! The dining is great from the dining hall as well as the buffet!!!
Service and Staff
they were great!!
Ship Quality
The ship is really small and decor and cleanliness was okay. the ship did not bother me as much but my family who has been on different ships did not like that the ship was so small.
Cabin / Stateroom
the stateroom was comfort and it was always clean! the cleaning staff was great and all the little towel animals were so cute!!The only thing the shower did not have enough force.
there were activities but it was all catered to one target audience. which sucked
Calica, Mexico
we went to playa de carmen and it was great the people were great the shopping was great and we did tons of water sports. there is more to the beach there.
Don't Miss: go to playa de carmen instead of the other places. they have shopping on 5th st. and the beaches are beautiful
Cozumel, Mexico
it was great but we got screwed with a tour we wanted to see thr ruin and this guy just drove us around the island. the island only has few good places and they are on one side of the island.
Don't Miss: defintely go shopping and hang out near the port. they are some great restaurants and shopping area. and Bargin with all the shop keepers
