My husband and I have been Carnival cruisers for years and are both Platinum members. We decided to take the plunge and booked a Thanksgiving cruise...after almost 2 years of not cruising. We could not have been happier! Ship is very nice and the crew worked super hard to always keep it extra clean and wiped down. We chose not to take any excursions this time and we just got off the ship and walked around...which was nice. Our cabin steward was so helpful and sweet! At the Serenity area Marie and IMade were always checking to be sure we had what we needed...just above and beyond helpful. Honestly, can't say enough about what a nice relaxing time we had. We are booked on the Horizon next May and CAN'T WAIT to go. Regarding masks...not a problem, it was no big deal!!

We liked Amber Cove and would like to go back again when it isn't raining. They have really nice pools, bars and tropical areas. Also, a zip line that was $20 for unlimited use.

We both had the Salt Scrub 75 minute each massage. Than, from Thailand, the massage therapist worked her magic on us. She does dry body brushing, outstanding massage including hands, feet, head and caps it off with a super nice salt scrub. My husband and I had separate appointments and we both thought that it was the best!! The shower is right in the room so you can shower right there. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TREATMENT!!

Cabin Review

Balcony

Stayed in balcony. Worked great for us! We usually get a higher floor but there were not any higher balcony's available as we booked late.
