We wanted a five day cruise on Carnival leaving out of Cape Canaveral in January. We booked in early November, so the new stricter vaccination protocols hadn’t started yet. Carnival was in constant communication with us regarding their requirements, I am very thankful for that.

The ship although somewhat older, was pristine, everyone wearing masks, and the crew was so kind and professional as they always are. Ship attendance was down, but no complaints on getting an open deck chair anytime! The room steward’s, wait staff and bar staff were amazing. The shipboard musical entertainment wasn’t up to the usual quality, but trivia and the comedy shows were excellent.

The food was okay, some desserts were not particularly good, but the entrees made up for that.

Clean and well attended. Jaemer did an excellent job.
