Sail Date: Jun 2023
Cabin: Ocean View

This cruise exceeded my expectations. 1st time cruiser and staff and activities did not disappoint. The Cruise Director Deon was awesome, absolutely loved his energy and personality. His dance shows were the highlight of the cruise. A different theme nightly. Our cabin Steward, Kadek, was great. Left us awesome towel animals everyday. The dining staff and ambiance was wonderful. The menu changed nightly at Sunset Restaurant and you receive a three course meal, I was able add extra appetizers, no extra charge. The comedian shows were hilarious. I played games like Bingo and Deal or no deal. Molly, a fun zone staff, was energetic and made games extra fun. The shore excursions were awesome. I did parasailing on Catalina, and will definitely do it again. I did the Kayak tour on Ensenada, to the La Bufadora (blow hole), I thought it would be difficult, but it wasn't. All activities exceeded my expectations. Thanks Carnival for a great experience. I will be back.

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Loved the cabins. Bigger than expected and or Steward, Kodak, was awesome.

Port Reviews


Port was easy to navigate and getting off and on was a quick process.

Catalina Island (California)

Catalina was easy to get off and on, even though you have to take another boat in, but it goes quickly.

Los Angeles

Boarding here in Long Beach was quick and easy. The waiting area was really nice.
