We planned a 5 day trip to Disney and decided to take a cruise. Family of 5. My husband 40, myself 40, daughter 19, son 14, and youngest daughter 8. I had no preconceived thoughts. My first cruise. I would have rather just take the money spent on this cause and booked a week long vacation at Destin, FL. The room was spacious and it accommodated us just fine. We really enjoyed our private balcony. However, it was not clean. The bathroom smelled of urine/sewage and was hard to stomach. The water was yellow that came out of the faucet. The boat was extremely rocky but I realized I was in the middle of the ocean. I felt there were surprise charges that were not properly explained. We paid them because, it is what it is. The formal dinner was a joke. The only thing I loved food wise would be Guy burgers...yum. Hong was an awesome server! He appeared everywhere. The room service food was gross. Nassau was trashy. We could not afford anything excursion at the ports. Freeport was better with a cute shopping area at port. You can not walk to or see the ocean unless you taxi out of the gates fenced port area. Again we could not afford an excursion. Let some 2 for 5 people. I was shocked at how raggedy the boat looked. Read Less

My husband and I have done many cruises and this was our third carnival cruise. The food was awful and cold breakfast and dinner regardless of eating at the tiny buffet or dining room. It seemed like there wasn't enough crew to take care of the guests on board. The ladies room on the pool deck only had two stalls and one was broken from the moment we got on board. The pool was rusted and not pretty to look at. The ship is going to dry dock 23 days after our cruise and the attitude for the crew on board matched. They ran out of miller lite/bud lite on the last night of the cruise and my husband was very upset after paying for the cheers package these are the only beers he drinks. Also, they started packing up (shrink wrapping) chairs on the last full day made us feel not welcomed (serenity deck). The only plus was the burgers and fries which is only open for lunch. Read Less

Let me first start off by saying we departed the port 3hrs late!!! I already had reservations when arriving at the port because the boat was smaller and looked older. The boat’s stops were Amber Cove and Grand Turk. As we were attempting to leave the port someone had a medical emergency (I had no problem with that but will explain my frustration). We set sail on Sat and were at sea on Sun. Saturday and Sunday the boat was very rocky. There were alot of people becoming ill because of it, me being one of them. I even had sea bands on and I still was ill. We were told middle of the day that our 1st stop to Amber Cove was not going to happen. The reason being 1) We were delayed leaving the port by 3 hrs 2) they stated the boat was having mechanical issues which resulted in the boat not reaching optimum speed and 3)they mentioned that when we left the port there was a medical emergency and they had to turn around to let the passengers off(which I felt that didn’t have a huge factor in the delay because when it happened we were floating away from the dock to pull off so there was no turning around because we didnt get anywhere). We were suppose to spend a whole day at Amber Cove So not only is this boat constantly rocking but now we’re not going to Amber Cove(which I was excited about). We were only given a credit of $50. Everyone on the boat I had interactions with were pissed even myself because we all felt like more should have been refunded more than $50. So now we are having to spend another day on the “rocky boat”. My personal opinion I feel like they knew before we got on the boat that they were having issues. On a lighter note though the dining staff were PHENOMENAL!!! Wilfredo and Chui were amazing! Even down to our room attendant Made. You could tell the staff were genuine. They were always smiling, friendly and personable. You could tell they were all about their guests and wanted us to enjoy our vacation. The boat is being dry docked to have work done and hopefully when that’s done the experience will be better for future cruisers. By the way Grand Turk was beautiful with pretty clear waters. It was very relaxing. I did not do any excursions but heard nothing but great things. Read Less
