The Good:

Everything on the ship was conveniently located and easy to find. Great itinerary. Just the right amount of sea days. Comedians were "top notch". Last two were very funny and engaging. Our cabin stewards: Voltor & Maria were outstanding. Dining had good variety. Would do another Journeys cruise on this ship! It would be nice if Carnival included the "intercom" messages, that the Cruise Director & Captain deliver, on a TV channel to listen to later. Can't hear the hallway PA system in our room. Also, it would be VERY nice to have a few more news channels on the TV beside CNN; CNN International; CNN Spanish and Headline News.

The Bad & Ugly

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin 8B

Cabin was always clean and neat as a pin. Mattress left both me and my wife with lower backache. Other beds on other Carnival ships were always extremely comfy and provided a good nights sleep. Not the fault of the cabin stewards......just need to be replaced. Had minor issue with sink stopper not sealing. Cabin steward had it fixed the first day.
