Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View

Over 20 cruises with Carnival. Each one an experience. Although this ship is a little old now,she is still a fun ship. Great staff on this ship makes the voyage lots f of fun and entertaining. Cam,the cruise director is definitely one of the best. He really puts his all into everything he does. One of if not the best singing/dance teams we have seen.

Ardestra Gardens in Nassau was beautiful. Small garden with marching flamingos! About $18 for ticket and a $20 taxi ride there. Definitely worth a visit, highly recommend.

Half moon cay was beautiful as usual, watch out for jellyfish! Otherwise beautiful sandy beach with lots of room for fun and relaxation.

Looking for jewelry? Check out Effy on ship, Marianne or Alexandra are 2 ladies who know their stuff. They also give away lots of cool stuff.

Guys burgers are always a hit, and they have improved their desserts in the lido restaurant.

Had ocean view room, which was comfortable and plenty of storage space for 2. There was worn spot in shower floor which was repainted during cruise while we were out and about.

I also recommend that when looking at reviews to take more notice of this who have done more than one review. These folks have cruised often and know what to expect. Just saying!

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 6A R-43

Ship is showing her age. Bathroom shower floor had several rust stains. This was painted over on our 4th day on-board. Enough room for 2 people, although there is 2 pull donw beds as well. Would not want to spend a week with 3 others in there. Air is controlled by knob in ceiling rather than thermostat. Heard someone complain that they froze in their room until the last day when they saw it. Hey, if you dont know, ask someone! Bed was comfortable, although we pulled it away from wall because of overhang of pulldown bed right above it. Would have knocked myself out waking up in the morning.
