We choose this ship because we could drive to it from Philly. Once again we got sucked into Carnival because of the cheap price. Never again. The security getting on the ship was the worst ever, don't know what they were looking for but the line was terrible. From the outside of the ship we saw more rust than we did on any other ship we have been on. (about 12). The balcony cabin was fine, till we met the cabin steward and he asked if we wanted AM or PM room service? Every other cruise line they do both. Cheap. The dining room was easy to get seated, but getting your order taken and food served took forever, every day. Cheap. The first night of entertainment left me with a bad taste for the rest of the week First you need to walk through the casino which full of smoke all the time. The cruise director lied to the men in the audience to have them volunteer, saying wouldn't you do anything for your wife for a FREE CRUISE? After he got 5 men on stage and torqued them for free entertainment, when it was all over, there was NO FREE CRUISE, HE LIED. CHEAP.The pool area, there were 3 hot tubs on the ship, one in the back that held 4 people and was warm at best. One toward the front that was in the middle of the smoking section. The other was always packed full of people. Cheap. Come meet the Captain night. Most cruises have some free wine or something, not here $1 dollar off some drink. Cheap. If price is the main reason for you to cruise, this is it. If not, spend a few dollars more and get a true cruise experience. Read Less

Wife and I just got off the 7 day cruise from Baltimore to Grand Turk, Half Moon, and Freeport. We booked this cruise because it's easy driving distance and the balcony was super cheap. We had never had a balcony so we figured this was the one to try. So, I'm gonna list my pros and cons. Pros: - We loved the way they did the Lido deck food on this ship. Different stations with different food, be it Asian, sandwiches, American-style fare, etc. - On that note: Guy's Burger Joint and Blue Iguana Cantina were easily the two best places to eat on this ship. The fresh burgers and fries at Guy's were awesome, and the Chipotle-style burritos AND awesome breakfast options at Blue Iguana were our favorites! - Dining room staff and menu options were excellent as always. - Most staff in general, very friendly and helpful. - Stops were nice as usual, had rain in Freeport so it wasn't as great but what can you do. Cons: - Our stateroom was not clean when we came in the first day. Bed was made, but there were crumbs on the vanity! Really? - Our much-anticipated balcony turned out to be a disappointment. There is a small drainage channel near the edge of the balcony. Ours apparently had a low spot in it and water just sat there. See attached pictures- this is how it looked almost all week. Also featured is a cigarette butt courtesy of our chain smoking neighbors, who smoked on their balcony every day (called guest services about it and as far as I can tell they did nothing). On top of this, upon check in there were paint chips all over the balcony, and hair on the patio furniture. We had to have someone sent up to clean up the paint chips and trash on our balcony because it had never been touched. - Our room steward wasn't the most friendly guy. I think we saw him 4 times the whole cruise. He acted weird after we called about getting the balcony cleaned up. - This ship is ROUGH. You can tell it's going in for a refurb soon because quite honestly it just looks bad. It just looks rusty and old. - Far as I can tell the whole ship only had 3 hot tubs, one of which was in Serenity, the adult-only area. They were almost always all full. - The entirety of the Lido deck always smelled like stale cigarette smoke. The smoking area was near one of the pools and the smoke was constantly getting pulled into the dining rooms. Maybe I've just become a cruise snob? We've been on a lot of cruises and this ship was the most disappointing yet. I think we will avoid the older Carnival ships in the future. Read Less

We looked for an inexpensive cruise to see if I could do it since I recently went on oxygen. The cabin steward was friendly but the cabin was rarelt done when we returned after being out. Make up cabin cards no longer available. Our waiter was good but our table was a little out of arae and we had inconsistant service. We didn't see any shows as the theater was at the opposite end of the ship. We also didn't get off the ship as we have been on 29 cruises. The TV was really disappointing. No more network channels, 3 or 4 news cannels all connected with CNN. One movie channel which showed the wrong movies since they must change the somewhat monthly. Terrible entertainment. They worked on the balconies 2 days and I couldn't see any improvement. Like all cruise lines things are going downhill and starting to become adisappointment. Read Less
