I chose this cruise based on the destination and time frame. First, the wait time for everything single thing is insane. Expect to wait in line for the buffet 30 minutes or more. Food is ok but found it difficult to find seating to eat at times. Nothing special. The cost of the Cheers package is very pricey and the bubbles package is only good if you drink a lot of soda. No bottled water is included. Also, all gratuities will be added to any drink you get. No internet of any kind is included on Carnival and is also very expensive. We have cruised other cruise lines and found Carnival to be on the lower end of exceptional. On a positive note, the entertainment was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed the shows and movies on the deck. We will choose another cruise line going forward. Never again on Carnival.

Cabin Review


Cabin was fine and as expected. Was always clean.

Port Reviews

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Loved Grand Cayman but the process to re-board the ship was a complete joke. Waited in line for an hour and a half.
