Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom

We didn't choose the cruise,it came as part of a visit to Tenessee.It was a very large ship and very busy as it was half term in some parts of America. There was only one small pool, far too small for the amount of passengers on board,also there's a children's play pool and water slides. This area of the ship was always packed with people, many of whom spent the day drinking alcohol.

On floor 16 there was a lovely quiet adult only area with hot tubs, small sit in pool,and bar.Unfortunately, on port days,this area closed in the afternoon for private functions.

Entertainment was poor.You have to book shows in advance,so only managed to book Burn the Floor show which we enjoyed.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom

Quite spacious, large bathroom with a good shower.

Port Reviews


Have been previously, so just visited the town on this occasion.

Harvest Caye

We enjoyed the beach and lovely pool.Although the cruise was all inclusive, food and drinks had to be paid for at Harvest Caye.We liked it better than Carnivals Mahogany Bay.

Costa Maya

Not much to do there,just tourist shopping.


Have been before so just went shopping.

It took quite a couple of hours in the queue to board the ship in New Orleans as passports were being checked to ensure that passengers hadnt been to areas affected by the Coronovirus, however the disembarking was organised and fairly swift.
