Sail Date: Apr 2022
Cabin: Balcony

We chose this cruise because we had never been to the ABC Islands. We got a really good price. The food was nothing to write home about. It was pretty well organized. Our cabin was not fully cleaned when we got there. Debarkation process took a long time. We had to wait in lines a long time. The cruise director, Donkey, was fabulous. He wants to go to Alaska but he was told he was too high energy for 50-80 year olds. I am 67 and I loved his energy. The photo area was easy to find and order pictures. There were not enough lounges by the pool. Some people just put towels on the chairs and never sat in them. That needs to be monitored. The elevator system was strange and very slow. I won't travel on Carnival again. Other cruise lines are much better. Shows were just OK.

Cabin Review


When we got in our cabin, it had a drawer full of clothes. There were fake fingernails on the floor near the bed that were never picked up. I asked for a bucket of ice and never received the whole cruise.
