Fantastic. Getting checked in was smooth and easy. The terminal has a Suite Lounge and we were the 4th couple to get onto the ship

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
There were so many different kinds of restaurants it was hard to choose sometimes. We ended up eating at the Cucina Del Capitano every night at dinner and the dinning staff were amazing

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We rode the "first roller coaster at seas" and it was way better then expected. We did 2 laps, it was fast and fun. They even had a photographer there to take pictures!! The high ropes course was fun as well, they have a zip line portion on the ropes course that almost takes you over the water.

Service and Staff

All staff I had interactions with were very nice and asked if I needed anything.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
It was nice to be on a new layout on a Carnival Ship. There were staff everywhere cleaning and making sure nothing was broken or need to be fixed. Only gripe I had were the public restrooms. The way they designed the doors and how to open and close them were very confusing and was something I heard throughout the cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The layout was much different then a typical Ocean Suite on other Carnival Ships. The layout was narrow instead of wide. Our Balcony was the best part. Mattress was a little stiff. Bathroom was a good size with a very big shower with a sliding door! Our room had a corner balcony mid ship and had so much room and was able to see so much more.

It was 32 minutes from the minute we left our room to getting in our vehicle. Super fast and easy. I would recommend Self Disembarkation if you can.
