Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Family Harbor Suite
Traveled with children

Wide variety of activities and plenty of room to spread out. We loved the Playlist Productions shows - especially Soulbound and Celestial Strings. Only complaint was that the comedy club was too small. We still got in to see some good shows but that was the only area with large waits. Sky bike was fun. Excellent food service. We had early seating and it was fast and efficient. Some of the dishes were fantastic. All were good. Dining room breakfast service was also fast . We had our own hot buffet in the family harbor area - great for the kids and for excursion days. Staff and activities in the kids clubs were great. Jane made sure that the kids in Circle C made friends and had fun. We are used to smart elevators but many are not - some posted instructions would be helpful for those that have not used them. Many people did not understand that they had to push once for each person and then were frustrated when their group could not fit on. Unnecessary frustration. Ports - DR - we stayed on the boat as did many others. The rest of the ports were great. Aruba- nice tour and mini sub ride, Grand Turk - went to the beach next to the ship, Curacao - walked to town and shops. We always have fun on Carnival.

Cabin Review

Family Harbor Suite

Cabin FS

Plenty of space for two adults and three teenagers. All of the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the lower balcony and got to see dolphins in Miami. Snacks and breakfast in the family harbor lounge were worth the cost. We did hear some noise from above at times but it was not too bad.

Port Reviews


Pretty town. Lots of nice shops.

Grand Turk

We walked to the beach. We did the conch and sting ray excursion on a prior cruise. This is a nice port.


Boarding and debarkation were fast and efficient

La Romana (Casa de Campo)

Did not venture past the terminal
