Cabin: Havana Cabana Suite

Our first carnival cruise and we were pleasantly surprised with the ship, cruise director and amenities/finishes. Western Caribbean itinerary was okay. We really enjoyed Curaçao and Amber Cove. Aruba and La Romana, DR we could have just as easily skipped that day. Very rough seas from Miami to Aruba. Then on way back to Miami again!

Food was good, not great. As expected, due to occupancy on the ship (about 65%) the buffet on the lido deck was reduced and foods were stale sometimes- leading me to believe it was re-used/reheated.

Dining staff and room steward were amazing! They did an excellent job and always remembered our name.

Restaurants were pretty expensive. Couldn’t walk to too much. Overall the city seemed run down.
