We chose this cruise because of the date it was available and that it was a five day cruise. This was the fourth cruise for me and my wife but our three kids first. Didn't want to be on a seven day if the kids didn't like the experience. ... Read more

The duration and the port were the main reasons we chose this cruise. The experience was great throughout the ship. From the entertainment and the activities to the dining options and staff, everything was very well executed. Our head ... Read more

This was our third time cruising with Carnival and probably our last. Embarkation was fine no issues the room was ready on time and always cleaned daily. The ship is old and dated but that wasn't an issue for us as we were outside all ... Read more

This was indeed a fun trip and the crew was amazing. Our grandkids had a great time. On the other hand, for the number of people, and especially kids, on board, the pools were way inadequate. They were far too small. The pools and sun ... Read more
