We haven't sailed since pre-covid and we needed a short cruise to get going again. Choose this to regain our sea legs. we live in Virginia, so this was a reasonably short drive down to Charleston. Arrived Saturday afternoon for the Sunday morning boarding.

My wife was on a mobility scooter and we contacted carnival early to fill out their forms. They directed us to the handicapped parking which was a good walk over to the check in building. I walked, my wife had to ride her scooter. When we got to the building we had to stand in line most of the process. Once into the building, they directed us around the lines and it didn't take us long to get on. We did have to use the zig zag boarding ramp.

Muster was okay. Room was small but adequate. We had a balcony on deck 6. Our steward did a good job. We are a senior retired couple so we didn't hang out a lot. This was a rowdy ship with lots of kids and noise in the hallways. Did one show, dining room a couple of times and the specialty restaurant.

Cabin Review


Clean and comfortable. TV sucks.Wifi so-so.

Port Reviews


Toughest port we have done. The separate buildings make it difficult for the disabled and seniors and other folks with ambulatory issues. Beautiful city and nice people.
