Sail Date: Mar 2019
Cabin: Interior

This ship is a joke. Room had several patched jobs with different colors. Smelled and broken furniture. Women’s dry sauna was registered at 230 degrees wet sauna had no steam (reported it twice) never changed all week Numerous medical emergencies. Rust filled Lido deck, broken down elevators. Entertainment suitable for the gereatrics ward. Save your money because Carnival doesn’t care. Day 2 man died in E37 and family members crying and screaming. People near the room confused as man brought out wrapped in towels and rushed down the hall into the elevator. Zero words said to the customers standing in hall way. No one knows if there are physically or medically safe and Carnival only paste a red sign on the door saying “do not enter under authoring of the captain”. Red tape across the lock. Upon debarkation, federal and local law enforcement outside the room. This is a low budget cruise. SAVE YOUR MONEY!

Cabin Review


Cabin 4I

Odor from the bathroom approximately 3 times a day that smelled like sewage. Broken furniture, rust door jams, multiple repair that look like a 3 grader did it. Worn out mattress and tv from the 1989s. One outlet.

Port Reviews

St. Thomas

Nice place to hang out and shop. Avoid Carnival’s recommendations as they are not best prices. Not even close.

San Juan

Great food and down town

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Water park was free and good time. More the fact you didn’t have to sit on that rust bucker


Didn’t do excursions
