Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
There are so many food and drink choices! From the MDR to Shaq's Big Chicken, from Pig and Anchor Smokehouse to Guy's Burgers, and the complimentary Speciality restaurants: Chibang and Cucina del Capitano, to the Specialty Cost restaurants such as Rudy's Seagrill and Farenheight 555. The bars were many and each had a theme as well.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We loved the many pools, and never had an issue getting a chair. The roller coaster looked fun, but I am a big chicken so I did not go on that!

Words cannot describe the 7 talented Carnival entertainers who put on so many different shows. I was blown away time and time again.

Children's Programs

no kids

Service and Staff

Every crew member we encountered were so happy to be back. The service we received was among the best in all of my cruises

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Such a big ship, yet laid out in a manner that we never felt crowded. Just beautiful and so amazing

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an extended balcony with this room and we really enjoyed the extra space. We had two chairs, a table and a lounge chair. The room was perfect with lots of storage and closet space. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was on the small side but love the shower doors!

Ship tip

We did a back to back, and we really enjoyed being on the ship for 14 days. The extra time meant we did not miss anything, and were able to repeat our favorite shows and meals.


5 out of 5
Again, fast and efficient. Off the ship and out the door in no time at all.
