Cabin: Interior

The ship, crew, experience was awesome....EXCEPT for buffet. There were 2 service food areas in the Marketplace Buffet. Each area had 8 hot serving stations. For every meal, each serving station had the same dishes as all of the other 7. There was 1 red meat, 1 fish, 1 white meat, carving station, rice, potato, 1 veggie, 1 soup....you get the idea. On other cruise lines there were many many more options.

The staff and performers were awesome. The Carnival Quest and the Lip Sync contests were some of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen. The ship is beautiful. I liked the elevators except when we were trying to get off in port in Curaçao. We waited 15+ minutes to finally get the elevator. My mother was not able to take the stairs so elevator was the only option. There were so many things to do and see. We never explored all of the ship. Overall, we had a great time filled with laughs and memories.

Cabin Review


Cabin 4G

Room was an inside cabin. All we did was use it to store luggage and clothes and sleep. We didn’t need anything else.

Port Reviews


Windy....watch out for low hanging trees. Fun excursion.

Grand Turk

There isnt much to see on this island but got to see different places.

La Romana (Casa de Campo)

Awesome trip. Seavis Island Special....5-6 hours on private island. Lots of food. Open bar (I dont drink) but was available. Awesome staff.


Great tour with informative guide.
