5 Night Western Caribbean (Mobile Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 01, 2009
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)

The ship was clean and kept up well for being so old. Good thing carnival is retiring it! The pools very disappointing but for good reason of age. Other wise the cruise experience overall good.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
OUR DINING ROOM STAFF WAS GREAT! JUST DISAPPOINTED TO HAVE TO SIT IN A BOOTH DRESSED UP. ALSO SINCE SO CASUAL BEING AROUND OTHERS WHO CHOOSE TO BE IN SHORTS IN THE DINING ROOM KIND OF RUINS THE ATMOSPHERE.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
THE SHOWS ON THIS SMALL SHIP WERE EXCELLENT AND WE HAVE CRUISED ALOT OF CRUISE LINES.

EASY ACCESS TO PUBLIC BEACH AND WAS NICE WITH PLENTY TO DO THERE. SOME PLACES THERE THE PEOPLE WERE VERY FRIENDLY.
Don't Miss: BUDDYS RESAURANT AND AREA ON BEACH WAS OWNED BY AN AMERICAN SO EASY TO COMMUNICATE AND GOOD FOOD. ALSO CLEAN RESTROOMS AND FREE LOUNGE CHAIRS.

HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE AND LIKED TO SNORKEL BUT LIMITED PLACES TO GO ON OWN LEISURE, HAD TO PAY FOR AN EXCURSION AT AN EXPENSIVE RESORT TO SNORKEL ALL DAY, BUT WE MADE THE BEST OF IT WITH THE INCLUDED MEAL AND DRINKS. THE SNORKELING WAS FINE BUT THE RESORT WAS RIGHT NEXT TO THE PIER SO SCENERY STUNK!

Pros: The room steward were great along with our dining room staff and the food.

Cons: Since old ship, no good pools for the number on kids on ship.

Recommends Holiday? No.
