Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
In the main dining rooms, the food was ok but it was very slow to come out and wasn't anywhere close to being hot. The specialty restaurants were great on the food and wait times.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
I wish there had been places or time for karaoke. Usually only an hour to an hour & a half each day.

Really enjoyed Queen's Flash at Syd Norman's

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Most of the staff were friendly and would speak if they passed you in the hallways. We had no idea who our room steward was. They never came around when we were near our room. On past cruises (Carnival), the steward went out of their way to check on us and introduced themselves.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
I wish there had been another set of elevators at the front of the ship. We were cruising with someone who couldn't take the stairs and it was a lot of walking for them since there was only 2 sets (Aft & Mid).

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Loved the larger shower. The toliet was hard to flush. We had issues with that all week but all in all, it was a nice room.

Ship tip

The best bar is Syd Norman's. If Wayan is there, he will take excellent care of you.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida
