We arrived at the Port of Miami right around 11:00. We purchased Faster to the Fun and had dropped off our bags and headed to lunch before noon. By the time we returned, our luggage was there and we had time to unpack and explore the ship before we left the port. I was pleasantly surprised on how big our room was. We had plenty of room to relax at the end of the day. We barely felt the ship move the whole trip.
The buffett was okay, but Guys burgers, the Deli, and Pizza Pirate were very good. I didn't care of the eggs and bacon in the breakfast bufett (it had no taste). The dining room food was always good. Getting off at the ports was easy and well organized.I had purchased three shore excursions from Carnival and was happy with all but the one we took at the Grand Caymans. Carnival was very good at keeping us informed about what was going on in the ship, and we enjoyed all of the comedy shows, bingo, and dive-in theater shows. The entertainment was amazing.
Debarking was painless and we were off the ship and through customs in no time at all. I would like to try another cruise line to have something to compare it too, but I really love this cruise.
