Worth every penny    $99.00 per person.  Lasted 3 hours.  Amazing food righ

We chose this cruise for its value, ship size and itinerary. Now, if you read a lot of the reviews, you are expecting to board the Pinta or Santa Maria or a slave Ship. I was kinda expecting grumpy crew members and long lines. We in face found the opposite. Embarkation was smooth as silk. Great people working. The ship is lovely. There was nothing that didn’t work. The buffet was great. We never Waited once. The food was not Ruths Chris Steakhouse, but I was not paying those type prices. We enjoyed every meal. The Northern Lights dining room was fabulous. Food was wonderful. Our servers were on the ball and from the first night remembered our names. Cabin steward kept room tip top. Spacious and always clean.

It was amazing to watch the Captain walk around the ship talking to the guests. He was out inspecting several times. He runs a great ship

In the Dominican, we did the Monkey Jungle excursion and loved it. In San Juan we went to the Rain Forest...beautiful. We had always tried to book our shore excursions on our own before and this time did both of them through Carnival and it was much easier.
