My wife and I left the kids with their Grandparents for an anniversary cruise. The Port of Mobile was easy to navigate and no problems getting in or out. The ship is older and smaller but clean. It has the issues that you would expect the oldest ship in the fleet to have. Some signs of wear with rust here and there but for it's age, it is in good shape. Our room steward Joslyn, was outstanding. The food was typical for Carnival. Somethings were very good, others were not great. This was a similar menu as the Paradise in Tampa from the cruise we took last year. Our waiters in the dinning room were efficient but not very personable. The lido deck waiters were also friendly. The cruise ship and staff were exactly what we have come to expect from Carnival. Probably not on the level of more elegant cruise ships but a very good product for the price. We have cruised with Carnival several times and have always encountered a high level of service from the crew.

Enjoyable Anniversary Trip
