Overall it was a nice trip. Food was good, staff was very nice, especially the waiters and the room steward.

The size of the room was ok, it is a cruise ship room, so we didn't have huge expectations in that regard. Anyways, the room was clean and the bathroom too.

There were too many kids, all gathered around the pools, but it is August so we were expecting it.

Of the excursions, we particularly liked the one we did in Cayman Islands, including Stingray City at the Dolphin Cove.

Stingray City was pretty cool. The water there is turquoise blue, and the stingrays are so friendly, even if they are wild (and that was the cool part of it).

When we got back to the Dolphin Cove we were asked if we wanted to visit a new photo exhibit they just opened. It is by National Geographic, so we said yes, and we were very pleased. The pictures are amazing, we are glad we were offered.

The disembarkation process was long, too long. We didn't purchase any fast pass, we figured we had already spent quite a lot of money.

Overall, though, it was nice. We are not expert cruisers, but we had a pleasant experience and we can say we would travel with Carnival again.

 

Nice cruise, just too many kids around
