This was our first cruise ever, and we loved every minute of it. Embarkation went smoothly, and we were in our cabin a half hour before they estimated we would. The excursions were fun and very interesting. Although the weather was very hot and humid on shore, the ship was comfortable. The food was excellent, the entertainment was fun, and the cruise director, Malcom, was hilarious. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole week. We will definitely be cruising with Carnival again.
