Sail Date: Dec 2021

We chose this cruise since it had Bimini, Bahamas and Half Moon Cay and NOT Nassau. Our port of call to Half Moon got switched to Nassau. Very disappointing as I’ve been there many times and not impressed. Carnival would not give anything to compensate for change 7 days prior to sailing.

The safety briefing is better now as when you get on ship you go right to do briefing and only takes 5 minutes instead of waiting for everyone to show up to their muster stations. Seems to take longer to get everyone there then actual briefing. Kudos to Carnival for that!

You still need to wear masks in common areas. Food has gone down in quality and variety. This is my 7th cruise with 4 times cruising on Carnival. The croissants were stale on buffet line.

Cabin Review

We were on Promenade deck 9th floor. Usually I’m lower deck on ship but it was rather convenient to everything.

Port Reviews


Loved the port. Friendly people. Beaches are gorgeous.
