Ship was older and in need of some upgrades. The ship was polished and clean. Everyone seemed anxious to satisfy our every need. Chandler did a good job at getting our dining group together.

Cruise

January

Pros: Super fun!, always something to do!

Cons: Food was okay, very rocky on the way back home

Recommended: Yes

I did enjoy all the options of things to do on board. It helped the time pass faster! The food was okay, I enjoyed my choices, but every night there was a baked potato to choose from. One night for dinner, then the very next day for lunch was the same exact meals. The turkey was good, but I didn’t want it for back to back meals. I enjoyed getting the Fun Times everyday! It was nice to know that everyone always felt included. On the way to the island it was very smooth sailing. On the way back it was very rocky, but I know that’s not Carnival's fault! While onboard, I highly enjoyed ALL the staff. It was always nice to see them smiling and happy to answer questions. One of my favorite employees aboard this boat would be Rico. He was always so friendly and talked to everyone any chance he got. It was a pleasure to see him host the comedy club the whole time! But seeing him around other places was nice too. I knew he was always happy and he was always willing to help out when needed. When disembarking from the ship Rico was in charge of letting people off. When a few people start cutting in line, he handled the angry ship members very calmly. It was impressive to see him handle pressure so well! Rico gave me the best experience while aboard!
