Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Ocean Suite

Was the worst carnival experience we ever had. By day 3 I cried & wanted to come home.

First night/morning we had a young intoxicated girl enter our room at 4am!! We called security and nobody could explain how she was able to enter our locked cabin. They had maintenance check key locks and door the next day to say nothing malfunctioned and they would just reprogram door. So I was worried about someone entering our room the entire week.

We purchased spa thermal package for $250 for the week and unfortunately should have just saved our money for something else. The spa was always packed with people so really no quiet zen time ever. The showers in there didn't work easily with so many knobs. The dirty towels were almost always overflowing. The sauna with essential oils just smelt like a musty room. There was dried blood leading into 1 of the spa rooms & when I reported it to staff they said ok.

Nice space but nothing special.

Not much to do & people are really pushy when you are shopping.


We had a good time on our own in a rented van touring the location and eating with the locals and buying in the small villages we visited.
