This is our first time cruise and we really enjoyed it. We arrived at Ft. Lauderdale one day before and explored the city a little bit. It is beautiful along the beach area! Embarkation: The embarkation process was very smooth. Disembarkation was a little bit chaotic but we were off the ship by 9 anyway. Really nothing to complain. Cabin: We did a last minute upgrade to a balcony room on Lido deck, which is just amazing. We sometime just sit there and enjoy the sea and the wind blowing. However, if you are on a budget I would say a interior cabin is enough —— We were not in our room that much anyway, and you can always find a spot on the ship deck. Our steward was great! Always kept our room clean. Dining: As most of the review already said, the food was ok but we were not like impressed. We did actually enjoy the buffet but the main dining room was a little bit disappointing —— It felt like too much work but the food was not better than the buffet. The waiters were really good though. Also the burgers were great! Entertainment: We mainly went to all the night shows. They were all great! And we loved our cruise director Mat. We also watched two late-night movies on the deck. Service: All great. Nothing to complain. Port of Call: We did a snorkeling at Grand Turk. It was just amazing. You can see (and touch) a lot of fish! The crew were very accommodating for our first timers. The beach was also good but too much seaweed. Half Moon Cay was our favorite. White sand beach with clear, beautiful water. We went on horseback riding which was fun. Would do it again. The only problem was the tendering operation. It was just chaotic and people were not following the instructions given. We didn't like Nassau. We would probably like it if we went to the beach, we did the last minute "Nassau hopping tour" instead. It was not worth it. Basically it is $30 for a (overcrowded) small bus ride with 4 stops, and you can explore each destination for a while. It was still interesting to see some of the local stuff but we were definitely expecting more. Overall for our first timer cruiser we were definitely impressed by the view on the sea, the destinations (especially Grand Turk and Half Moon Cay), and the overall experience about being on a ship. We are already looking forward to doing it again the next year! Read Less

We love going on cruises and love Carnival. I have 2 teenagers and they love it! Club O2 is great. Love the piano bar. Gilbert is wonderful. He is very entertaining and getting everyone involved. Renoir restaurant was great I Made and Jaya were great waiters. They were entertaining as well. Food was excellent!! Drinks were excellent. The service on the lido could have been better on day at sea. Disappointed that Mongolian Grill wasnt on this ship. My husband and I just assumed it was on all ships. but not. Not thrilled with the italian buffet. My 17 year old loves italian and she was eager to go, but found out there was no pasta selection. Not happy that late night room service changed. Anything after 10 is a charge. That's ridiculous. Also, not enough comedy shows...lacking. Loved seeing the Love and Marriage show, but hardly any air stirring. Then after that night no air stirring. It was like a sauna in there. Very disappointed that the 18+ comedy show wouldn't let my teens come. It should be up to the parent if their child should attend. Read Less

The ship was fine, clean, good food. The staff were really good. Embarkation was smooth, room ready on time, luggage got to room quickly. Day of boarding, buffet crazy full of people, will definitely wait til rooms are ready to board again, everyone thinned out then. That musser thing everyone goes to - super hot and too many crowded into a small deck space. Pools cloudy and crowded. Entertainment was ok. First time cruising during summer and on Carnival- rude people and way too many teens, and they ran & yelled in the halls at midnight until 3 am. Cabin was near elevators and very noisy. Half Moon Cay was very pretty, food was horrible! Disembarkation was a disaster, better off to wait until end to leave the ship. So many rude people. Would cruise Carnival again, not in summer time. Nice having Hub app on phone to keep up with everything. Read Less

We just got back and had a fantastic time. Food was grear and staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in cabin 6416 and our room was great as well. Boarding process was fast and efficient. We purchased the faster to the fun pass and it was well worth it. Debarkation was also smooth and quick. We were off the boat and through customs and catching a cab by 8:45. As far as the islands, Nassau was my favorite. We purchasedthe Blu Lagoon Island family beach day and it was by far my favorite part of the trip. Half Moon Cay was beautiful as well, by offeredno food options for kids other than hamburgers. No biggy, we just went back to the ship to eat. Lastly, we went to Grand Turks which was my least favorite. Way too much seaweed on the beach and in the water. Plus lots of locals trying to scam tourists. Remeber, the green umbrellas are free. We paid $25 for a umbrella and 3 chairs which were right next to the free ones. Lesson learned. Margaritaville was great though. Pool was fantastic. Read Less

We choose this trip for the location of the departure port and fro Jamaica. My husband and I took this trip for some relaxation time. This ship offers an adult only portion which is nice, but it only has spas. There is an adult only pool, but it is located on an open deck where any age can sit. The ship itself had many activities. The Cruise director Matt and his Fun Squad team (¨Mad Money Macie¨, Intern George) were all welcoming. The shows in the evening were dance shows, so not everyone's cup of tea but were all pretty good. We had open seating for the dinning hall. You can request to be seated with the same wait staff every night. We did! We had the best Service team, Budiana and Astawa were terrific! The bar staff was a hit or miss. We finally found one that was not only nice, but fast and could make whatever you wanted, Gede Wairagia best bartender on the ship!!! We had an ocean view room. The room was clean and our Steward was amazing! He knew we liked a bucket of ice, so every morning and evening he would refill it without us even asking. Anything we wanted, he brought us, and quickly. Thanks Komang for making it a pleasant week. Overall, we had a great time and met some new friends! Read Less

This was my first cruise and I was pretty disappointed start to finish. A couple hours after arrival they literally herd all passengers onto the sides of the boats and line us up 5 rows deep for a mandatory “safety instruction”. It was so hot, we stood there sweating for an hour waiting for all passengers to line up before the instruction could begin. There was an elderly lady in front of us who needed to sit, sorry but she was told she had to stand. One man went running out because he was claustrophobic and started hyperventilating. My husband’s shirt was wet with sweat by the end and after a full day of travel and piled on top of each other in the heat like that, the smell was bad as well. The crew seemed oblivious. The crew members putting on the demonstration were also actors in the nightly cruise show and seemed more concerned with telling everybody to come see the show than the well being and comfort of the guests. I understand they have to give all passengers this instruction but there has to be a better way to do so. Now the pools...if you want a nice, relaxing pool experience you won’t get it here. The pools are tiny...it’s standing room only, they are packed like sardines. Okay now the food...the buffet food is BAD. People warned me about gaining weight on a cruise, I lost weight on this one. Think the worse Shoneys buffet you’ve ever been to. The rooms are small but storage is very efficient. The decor is tacky and like downtown Vegas maybe. The stewards do keep the rooms very tidy, so that’s a plus. At night we dined in the formal dining room, the staff is great but the food, while better than the buffet is still sub par. Best food on the ship is Guys Burgers. The ports were amazing, Nassau and a private island beach day. I just wish we would have had a better ship experience. I’ve been told by experienced cruisers that Carnival is at the bottom of the list of good cruise lines. And we want to cruise again but next time we’ll pay extra and cruise with Royal Caribbean Read Less

This was our 3rd Carnival cruise and we really enjoyed our time on the boat! We really enjoyed the Guy's burgers & the Blue Iguana. The overall food in the main dining room was not as good as in previous cruises and one evening our dinner took almost 2 hours. We have never really enjoyed the Lido Buffet and this trip was no different. Although our waiters in the main dining room were great especially Lala! The comedians were both very funny & entertaining! The shows were good but I didn't really like Flick as much as the 80's show. I did feel that there was not as much entertainment and things to do during the day as in past cruises. We spent a lot more time at the pool because there wasn't as many activities throughout the day. We really liked watching the movies outside. That was fun for the kids as well. I thought the crew was always very friendly and helpful. The boat may be a little dated but it was very clean and there were always crew members cleaning the boat. Read Less

We choose this cruise becuz we wanted to go th o.turks and caicos. But when we got there it was very expensive and to go on the beach you had to pay for chairs and umbrellas. We ended up going back to ship. The ship stunk throughout the entire sailing smelling like focus and really bad farts. Staff rude and unknowledgeable about ship and all things cruise. Loud neighbors kids running up and dwn hallway. Ppl smoking on balcony above and around stateroom, could not enjoy our balcony. Doors slamming throughout the cruise while in stateroom. Theives throughout ship. Late departures from islands ppl not being back at appointed times. Customer service bad went there 6 times for lost items. They ended up.giving items to.another passenger.l and didn't find that out until the 6th visit after going there 6 times within a 10 hour time span. Just a bad experience period Read Less

First ,we were shuttled from the Four Points by Sheraton the early afternoon and arrived comfortably. I chose this Cruise for the Itinerary and Embarkation location. Leaving from Port Everglades was exciting and smooth(we purchased Faster to the Fun). The Ship was surprisingly up to date, for me. The crew, for the most part, was very pleasant; respectable; courteous; helpful and friendly. Made me feel comfortable cruising. The Ports we stopped at were Ocho Rios, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. Didn't care for Ocho Rios too much. The locals "nickel and dimed" us every chance they got. Next time, I'll go to another beach and Not Bamboo Beach. We didn't purchase the excursion from the ship, so we paid $40- for the cab to Bamboo Beach Club. But when we got to Bamboo Beach after a tour of part of the Island, they charged us $10 a piece for a lounge chair. That was overpriced to me. I went on ahead and purchased it anyway, you only live once. Be very careful in Jamaica, its not as safe as the Cayman Islands in which I fell in love with. The Cayman Islands is just a GREAT place to vacation. The town/port is very modern; safe and for the most part secure. We went to Calico Jacks which was very nice and there was enough room for everybody. The water was clear blue and pristine. The Dining experience was good; the food was well cooked; tasty and good. It had a little more variety than some other Cruises I've been on. We spent alot of time in the Casino, in which we really enjoyed. The Disembarkation from the Ship, was a total mess. It was worse than when you stand on line to Embark on the ship. We wanted to wait till the end, we figured it would be less crowded, and we were'nt in a hurry, we were "Totally" wrong. Next time, I'll use my Faster to the Fun Priority Disembarkation benefit. Overall, it was a good cruise but too short! Read Less

Had a family reunion. My room attendant Ms Desra was the best . She was very detailed with everything and even help with my baby signing and dancing in the room . So nice . My dad and mom both greatful for showing them how to use the items in the room she gave us free water and my mom loved that . Down side service in the dinner was not great that did not actually accommodate my family of 30 because we all had to sit in different areas on formal night when they said they will set everything up . We did not sit together and we did not see each for pictures. Very sad. Getting on the ship was great . Getting off was horrible. They shut off the ac so it was very unbreaable to breath. They shut off the toilet and did not tell any one about it . Horrible . Then when asked they said they shut off al of them . Long lines for everything Read Less
