Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining wasn’t that bad. Some days were better then other at the dining halls/ buffet. Specialty dining- Italian was absolutely amazing, I would recommend to anyone. The steak house was an absolute let down. I got lamb chops who tasted like 2 different people cooked them. The French was an amazing experience with a great variety of food!

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
The was only one pool for adults that’s was always crowded and never anywhere to sit. The adult only area the bartender was great but he was always by himself and people would get mad at him for waiting so long but it was not his fault.

Some of the games in the Atrium were entertaining but I don’t like that you had to pay for some.

Children's Programs

My children absolutely LOVED the Splash Academy! The staff was very warm and welcoming to myself and my my children. They did crafts everyday and they had a blast. The show they put on at the end was so freaking cute.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
I’m saying okay because guest services were not the nicest of people and the maiming dining were the friendliest. The specialty restaurants staff was excellent and most bars were excellent as well.

Ship Quality

Everything was always so crowded. I hated having to walk through the smoke filled casino.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
I paid extra money for a balcony stateroom that was so tiny. The room was hard to move around with my husband, myself, and our 2 kids. Also we all couldn’t go see the ocean at the same time because the size of the balcony. I was very upset because I spent close to $5000. When we went on Carnival our stateroom was much larger.
