We took our family of 9 (2 grandparents, with daughters and 1 son in law, 4 grandkids age 9-16)....we had a fabulous time! Lots of entertainment for kids and adults! We felt our grandkids were safe running around the ship playing Clue and Hasbro games not to mention the arcade! 9 year old granddaughter had that ship figured out in one day! The cabins were kept clean on a daily basis as is the entire ship! All staff were very friendly and never failed to greet us with a good morning and a big smile! Highest marks go to June, Edwin and Marshal in the Black Pearl dining room! Excellent service and a very good personality for this job! Day in and out, June greeted us all with warmth, a smile and a great sense of humour! Great dancer too! My husband and I have been on many cruises some higher end than Carnival but the food and service on this cruise was far above any Celebrity etc cruise we have had! Shore excursion in Puerto Vallarta to Los Clentias (sp) hideaway was excellent and well worth the money! Very organized as was embarkation and disembarkation!! We were very,very pleased! Highly recommend this cruise line to anybody! It was a blast! We will be back! PS....thank you , thank you June for your excellent service...made our holiday! (mom Maureen)

Outstanding food and service!
