  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Interior

What a joke for a cruise. So disappointing.

Rooms were clean and servers in dining room were excellent but:

Two days on the water and the pool was closed all day for maintenance.

Obviously the stabilizers weren’t working as the ship was moving from side to side and people were sea sick. Others complained of this in 2019. I ended up falling and got a huge bruise out of it. Went to see the doctor. While at the doctor, a young lady came in with her foot bandaged. A tennis table had fallen on it.

People complained of a huge noise and then smelling fuel.

We missed porting at Dominican Republic and Grand Turk. To save Carnival from paying fines, we docked at Nassau. Not what we signed up for.

No compensation from Carnival other than $50. for each port that we missed. Even called Carnival and was told no reimbursements were being offered. Not good enough.

Never again
