Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean

Just got off 11/21/2019 and had mostly read cruise critics reviews. Find you another set of reviews to read.

Pro:

Ship was majored updated 2 years ago. It ain’t gonna be dry docked.

Crew and staff very positive & friendly. Almost 2/1 ratio. No shortage except in Casino cashier. Don’t play slots last day.

Activities plentiful and entertaining for a senior citizen. Very few children on this cruise.

Rooms have plenty of phone charging stations. Shelf in bathroom. Had window room M89. Very comfortable.

Cons:

Ship Rocky in calm waters.

Captain said stabilizers are working. Rumors of not is Fake News.

No High class restaurant. You have to pay $20 to get surf & turf at you regular dining room meals.

Refrigerator in room did not work.

Tips:

Don’t pay for water in room.

Use free room service for ice bucket and glasses of water.

Use GoPort transportation if your coming from Orlando airport. Half of Carnivals price.

Effee shops don’t have free necklaces until Last sail day and do not look like picture.

Get Percifal for waiter if possible.

Wife had fire & ice pedicure with $50 off coupon your room staff leaves for you.

For a 20+ year ship, they are doing a great job. If you like the larger ships and double the people you probably won’t like this smaller version.
