A great time!

Sail Date: March 17, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall the ship was in good shape, etc. Of course it is old & will be retiring soon but would have nice if windows looking out of rooms were a little more clear. Shipe was kept clean. Of course was a little hard to find things @ times since couldn't get to all areas on a deck from each area (forward didn't always connect to the back w/out having to go up & back down). Food was OK, but nothing that great. Everything was a little bland. We did have a great time as a family but wish there were things to do earlier in the evening while your kids were @ Camp Carnival. The shows, karaoke, etc. began way too late for Camp Carnival to be over. I realize we could pay for babysitting services, but 10-3am is too late for little ones to be left w/ strangers.

Pros: The trips @ port. The excellent room steward.

Cons: Too hard to get drinks for kids outside of actual restaurant (like milk, juice, etc.). Didn't appreciate having to pay for $2.50 for small glass of orange juice (for a 3 year old)@ one of the bars so wouldn't have to go 3 flights to get to the buffet to get juice. Not enough shows, etc early!

The beach excursion was great. The drinks were not that good & the food was a little expensive but the beach area was fabulous & it was an enjoyable time. We would definitely visit there again. It was laid back & lots of family fun.

Beach Excursion Plus was fabulous. The beach area was great. The people running the place were a little picky about letting individuals get the low beach chairs close to the water & were a little rude regarding that. The food was excellent & the drinks were also. There was also a great pool area there for children & adults. It was also nice to have some shops there but people that went last year said that there were many more shops to choose from w/ much better prices & friendlier sales people. Restrooms were nice & were clean @ the location & many great things to do on the water that were also included in the price. Would definitely reccommend to others looking for a great day @ the beach.
