Don't Waste Your Money Unless you like No Class.

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Charleston
My husband and I and another couple took this cruise.The other couple drove down from NH,then we drove the 7 hour drive from VA. My husband has to have the handicapp assist with a wheelchair due to a bad knee.Normally anyone that is with our party boards with us.The first lady at the xray machine said no,then as we were checking in to get our sail and sign card this we were lucky enough to get someone with even a nastier attitude towards us...we look over and there our other couple is with a really nice lady checking thme in who told them they could board with there we all go..thinking we can board together and then we get told by someone else that no one cant. By this point we were already annoyed.

We find our rooms....not to bad for an interior. First time we have ever had one. We were pleased with it.We were in M26.Our other couple had M16. A few bad things about this ship is its small....its age shows....the food is ok if you like hospital food or cafeteria More food. On the 3rd day the breakfast bar had cut up hot dogs which is fine but they had them labeled as "pork sausages". My husband even asked one of the guys who was handing out bacon if the sausauge was REAL pork sausage and he just my husband said" Its cut up hot dogs isnt it?" And the worker said YES.

The room service food is much better then the dining room food. The sit down breakfast in the dining room is 100 times better then what you get on the lido deck.

If your looking for a ship with alot to do.....this is not the ship for you. Most cruises you always see your cruise director.....we saw her once in passing and she was dressed as if she were going to a business meeting.And we saw her again hosting a show.The rest of the staff were dressed in blue so you knew who they were.

We went into the first port...Nassau. You cant go into the Straw Market and look around because those people attack you as if you were looking for a new car like a salesman.

We went to the public beach next to Atlantis and got 3 beach chairks for $30...coconut drinks for $20 per person....unlimitted refills.

Next port was Half Moon Cay.....the BEST port. Take your braskfast cereal with you and you can feed the fish. This was so much fun. The fish swim around you while you feed them.

Finally we went to Grand Turks....this was pretty but the beach was rocky and the ships are parked right in front of the beach. Not a great view.

Bottom line.....we will NEVER cruise on this ship again. If you are taking your first Carnival Cruise ....dont let this be your first one because you will never want to cruise with Carnival again. They do have nice ships but this isnt one of them. Less

Cabin review: 12M26

Our cabin was noting to write home about.After we left the 2nd port our toilets on the ship quit working.It took a few hours but they started working again.

Port and Shore Excursions

This was the best port of all. Clean...silky smooth white sand.....crystal clear water.You should take breakfast cereal with you to feed the fish. This was so much fun!!!!!
