Great ship, with lots of amenities, brilliant crew, lots of choices for meals, service was the best I have ever experienced anywhere. I enjoyed the excursions and the onboard entertainment. Best and most relaxing holiday I have ever had in 30 years. Would and will definitely sail again with Carnival. Had a balcony cabin on deck 7 which was quite comfortable. I slept well. Recommend having a balcony has it's quite nice to sit outside and have a beer when leaving port. It's also bonus when arriving at port and being outside to take in the view or the welcoming. Embarkation and disembarkation during check in/out was remarkably efficient. The same experience was had at each port or when using the tenders. Nouveau is a nice treat for a special dinner. The Empire Dining Room is simply fantastic for dinner. Be prepared to dress up for the theme nights. Ask your cruise consultant what you might need. Spend money at each of the ports and have a good time, take photos, videos, go snorkelling (buy a set onboard or take with you) and plan your next cruise. Get photos onboard to remember your holiday, be prepared to dress up for it. If you have kids with you this will be even more special. Meet lots of nice people and made new friends.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7154
Compact yet comfortable cabin. Very quiet. Bed was good, temperature was ideal. Wardrobe space was good and the bathroom was everything we needed. The TV had plenty of channels and the fridge was good. I'd like a less 'pink' coloured cabin but that's about the only critical comment I could make.

Our cabin steward was fantastic and friendly.
