We cruised out of New York with ports in cocoa beach, nassau and freeport. First and foremost I heard a lot of complaining on the boat about not doing this cruise again. Listen folks this is a ship out of New York. There is typically some weather in the Atlantic in February so if you go on this cruise thinking it will be like one out of Miami think again. Again this is February so you are rolling the dice with some rough seas and the potential for cooler temps in FL and the Bahamas.
The Ship: It is very bright and colorfull. The decor is tastefull and fun. It is very clean and well cared for. Negatives: only that there is no jumbotron. I think all Carnival ships should have one. Positives: the lido deck has a retracking roof over one pool so even when cool out you can sun bath.
Food: Normal Carnival Fare. Nothing glitzy but plenty of it and good. A few nights the sit down dinners were very good with lobster and filet Mignon. Overall the food selection could have been better but I have had a lot worse.
Great Balcony I recommend the extended Balcony or at the very least a Balcony for all.
