Not what we expected

Sail Date: December 15, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was nice but the buffet got us sick every time. The service was not very friendly and was not able to understand English making it hard to communicate. Wait staff was not friendly, very slow, food was not a very good variety but was good portions. The entertainment on the ship was limited at sea and more so when at dock. The lack of quality in the merchandise on the ship in the gift shops was very upsetting. Carnival had better quality jewelry. The Stingray excursion was wonderful and something we would do again as the staff for that was AMAZING!!! That was the Best part of the vacation for the money and the experience.

We enjoyed the vacation but would not do this ship or the Bahamas again.

Got sick at Buffet, service was VERY Slow and poor communication by staff.
Lack of a variety both at sea and docked.

Very limited with out spending more money than it was worth.

The Bahamas was fun but not worth a second trip. Variety of Excursions was great but rather pricey.
Cabin / Stateroom
Having a bunk bed above your head on both sides of the bed made it rather cramped for the 4 of us, the area to move around in (Not the bed) was very limited. Bathroom was Very small. The pictures on the wall is where the bunk beds were located.
