Sail Date: Nov 2019

The ship is nice. Crew members are very nice and pleasant. Cabin was well maintained. We have a clog in the washing sink and it was fixed quickly after reporting to the staff. Dinning and activities all met expectations. We mainly use the main dining room as a sit down and order style are more suitable for us. Dress codes seems to be a general guideline as they are not enforced. Activities are average and limited when compared with the larger ships. However, the crew did a good job in trying their best to provide a good experience for participants. We did the dodge ball and volleyball games and they are nice despite the staff was not too knowledgeable with the volleyball rules. The music and dancing sessions are tailored for youth and Latino style. But I must admit that there is a less noisy piano lounge which we did not take advantage of. Entertainment such as shows also have less varieties as compared with larger ships. The main show and comedy show were carried out by the same respective performers through out the cruise.

I would give it a rating of at least 4 if not 5 if there wasn't the problem with the excursion.

Me and my wife joined the discovery scuba diving in grand cayman. The short story about that excursion is we were left abandoned on the surface of the sea because we did not manage to descend to the bottom in our first try. The instructor told my wife he will be back for her after helping others but the next time we saw him is at the end of the session which we were brought back to shore. This is simply the tour operator's problem but I subsequently found out that carnival management also have a major issue.

Cabin Review

Clean and well kept, bear in mind that this is a pretty new ship. Similar to other cruise lines. Cabin being serviced very good every day.
