Cabin: Ocean View
Traveled with children

Summary. We are a party of 10 cruising – 6 adults, 4 teenage girls. Overall positive experience, found the ship and staterooms to be clean, friendly staff overall. Enjoyed the restaurants over buffet. The crew works very hard and deserve the gratuities. Many pros/ cons and key recommendations to help plan your trip!

First the positives:

1) Download and use the carnival app. It’s a great way to communicate (chat plan) with your party and source for the daily activities, restaurant hours, and ability to monitor your daily portfolio spend. $5pp for entire cruise a bargain!

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Cabin 6C

Very clean, and the maid cleaned daily excellent. Only one power-socket so plan on bring an adapter. Plenty of towels and storage available. Bed very comfortable, consider brining a portable fan if you want to reduce outside noise and ship sounds.

Port Reviews

Half Moon Cay

Get early for (tree) shaded chairs, else just walk further down the beach. Splurge and rent the house cabana $500 and split among families. You get personal shower snorkel gear and A/C. B-Que buffet included at island from ship and usual ship drinks/ bars.

Galveston

Great boarding experience., on the ship within 20min.
