The Vibe is bad. The food quality is poor. The rooms were dirty even after being cleaned of our familys 2 rooms. An Employee stold a cup either a friend name on it out of a family'sroom. The shower in a friend room wouldn't drain correctly it took them 3 days to fix. Toilet was plugged 3 days to fix it they treated them like they didn'tno how to flush the toilet. . In a family friends room. The elevator system is a total failure. You wait forever for elevators. Then when they move luggage the completely block off use of them mid ship. The layout of the ship is awful you can't get from one end to the other without going down room hallways. It was terrible noisy in my room all hours. Kids running down hallways, music etc. Very Very load. The room door wasn't even sealed could see light all the way around it at night.

The check in system to eat is all on aps and then it say 50 minutes and 2 minutes later says your table is ready. So there is no way of having a plan or consistency. Then you have to read your menu on the ap. Every the base music is loud yet the announcements you can't hardly hear if you can hear them at all. Every single thing on the ship is a sales pitch of some sort. The room balcony is very narrow. Food is not good portions you order double to get enough to eat but its so poor quality and tastless. Very bland, minimal to no flavor or not edible. Desserts were terrible. Entertainment was minimal when there was any it was so packed there was no seats and people standing every where so you couldn't see. Carnival employees were not happy cheerful. The Bartendars only made drinks they had on the menu. Definitely not worth the money. Then after the cruise I was charged more than my statement says.

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Cabin was OK in size. Balcony was small. But in a poor location as it is very noisy both from hallway you hear everything going on in the hallway and outside. All the music very very loud

Very saley... very much a tourist place. Very beautiful but to many pushy salesman for me


Stone Island was amazing the shaded seating and beach. Allot of things to buy and do. Food and drinks.

Puerto Vallarta

Our excursion included going to an island there were tons of stairs to eat food was not good. Drinks weren't good. Beach was great but kids got eaten by sand fleas.
