Traveled with children


The good - Great service by the crew who work hard to keep us all happy. Good food overall in the main restaruant, though I think Carnival do a far better job at the bistro. Chops Grill was fantastic at breakfast. No passnegrs were to be seen at Johnny Rockets. Those who went reported back on bad food.

The pools were great.. This is one thing RC have all over Carnival. The pools are bigger, cleaner and the life guards ensure the kids are behaving well at all times.

Cabin Review

Grand Suite - 2 Bedrooms

Cabin GT

We chose a suite at the stern of the ship. The suite was looking rather old. The view was somewhat obstructed. The plumbing broke down. But the concierge (Jorge) and room service person (Paul) did a great job in meeting our requests and questions.
