Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View

We chose this cruise because Carnival gave us casino rates and Drinks on us it also fell on the dates for our anniversary .We have been on 7 cruises now and this was by far the worst but its still a cruise right. This ship has no stabilizers which I didn't think would be an issue we sailed on her before, but this time we had rough seas The bags were out all over the ship our 26 Yo had never sailed before was seasick the first 2 days poor guy.Anyway it was our 25 anniversary no recognition from Carnival at all(yes they were told in advance thru our PVP). I had to tell the Dinner staff myself so they would come sing for my wife our room steward was mia most of the cruise our cabin lights had a mind of there own turning on and off when they wanted we were in cabin U66 which is really 666 so we joked our room was haunted. At times there was a smell in the room we learned there was some sort of issue on the deck later. Now the staff on this ship was awesome our sons room steward Gede was great our dinner staff(Hakan,Budiana and yevhen) went well over to please everyone at the table. We enjoyed both the ports Amber cove We rented the poolside Cabana well worth the cost comfortable and cozy.Grand Turk we rented a Golf cart from Boogie then had lunch at Margaritaville (don't recommend its way overpriced)spent the rest of the day at the beach. I heard Deon was awesome we didn't see him much I'm guessing he was at things we weren't but James was great. Comedy shows were great we didn't do any of the shows been on carnival seen them many times they really need to update.Anyway the ship is old and really needs something or to be taken out.
