We couldn't have been more pleased with the total package. The staff was excellent, as were the accommodations, food, entertainment, facilities. Everything was clean and the rooms were very attractive and well organized.

Our second day out to sea (it was a 6 day cruise) my husband fell and broke his hip while getting up from a lounge chair on deck It was an accident; nobody was to blame. Almost immediately, the staff came with a stretcher and promptly took him to the medical center. There were 2 doctors & 6 nurses on the staff. He was so well taken care of by all of them. He was x-rayed and it confirmed the break. They kept him overnight in the med center and administered excellent help. We were to dock in Jamaica the next a.m. We preferred to be taken back to Indiana where a familiar hospital was. Carnival arranged for all of that to happen. We were ambulanced in Jamaica to Montego Bay where a ambuair jet was waiting to take us home. Throughout all of the days following until the cruise was over, they would call for an update on him to relay the message to our son and family who were still on board. It was a scary time to think he needed surgery and was that far from home, but it was handled so well; we can't thank the staff enough for their thoughtfulness and kindness.

The recent press has been very difficult for Carnival but we would wholeheartedly recommend them for a delightful cruise. We had a very good experience with them, even with the unfortunate accident.

It was diversified, presented well, very tasty, and was always fresh.

It was very pleasant, relaxing, and well organized. The colors were tranquil and harmonized, the fabrics were nice and the facilities were all that we needed. accommodations were very good; we had an inside cabin and I did not feel isolated or closed in at all

There was something for everyone. A big variety

Because of the fall, we didn't get to participate in the excursions

Our trip was a gift from our son, his wife, and family. We were all very excited about it, and enjoyed it until the accidental fall that broke my husband's hip. We know we would have enjoyed the whole 6 days had we been able to continue. We had been looking forward to it But because of Carnival we were well taken care of. The unknown is always a possibility. We would advise everyone to take out travel insurance to help ease the stress.
