Great time

Sail Date: August 2017
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
Our cabin was very clean and the room steward was friendly and helpful. Our food in the dining room was great with attentive service. Cruise Director was funny and very organized. The ships pool area was very worn but they were tearing up part of the deck to make improvements. The buffet was always packed with people but they worked real hard to keep it full and clean. Our complaint was the guests who pushed and complained...not cruise lines fault! Entertainment was OK, not the best we have seen from Carnival but still enjoyable. We did not get off the ship in Key West. Not a lot to do in Key West from 7am to 12:30pm. Kind of a wasted port. Went to the downtown area in Cozumel and had a lovely lunch and margarita's. Always a fun port. Overall we was very please with our cruise and had a great time! Less

Cabin review: OS7251 Ocean Suite

Carnival called us and offered an upgrade from a balcony to a suite for a discounted price. It was our first time in a suite and it was awesome. So much room!

Cozumel is a nice port. Very organized and clean. It is easy and very inexpensive to grab a cab and go to the downtown area. We had a great lunch and some yummy margarita's. Plenty of cabs lined up for our ride back to port for $6.

Not a lot to do in Key West. The port is at the old Navy Base so the view is terrible. We arrive at 7am and had to be back on board at 12:30. We did not even get off the ship. Not a great port.

My husband and I are platinum guests and Miami does not do a great job in boarding their platinum and diamond members for early boarding. They basically put you in a room with all of Faster to the Fun guests and announce OK time to board and it is one big free for all!! If you are diamond or platinum make sure you sit by the door so you can board early.
