Great cruise with Carnival again!

The food was amazing, and we had a variety to choose from.

My cool was perfect. I had a Balcony on the Lido deck, cloe to the foor and activities and pool.

The activities were good. Lots to choose from depending on your perference.

This was the fastest we ever made it on the ship. On cruise day, we made it to the terminal at 1:30pm and because of the change in the way the security checkpoints were set up, we were able to board the ship in 30minutes. Getting off the ship was even quicker as we chose to carry our own luggage. It only took 12 minutes. (yes we timed it) lol Since we had a group of 4, along with a total of 6 bags, we grabbed one of the cart men who happily loaded our things on his cart and led us to the customs desk to show passports. This was my 3rd cruise on Carnival and i must say, it was a great one. We were involved in many of the activities including the bean bag toss, gambling, golf, swimming, and many others. Each day, our housekeeping staff addressed us all by name. That made it seem more personal that he knew all of our names. He also remembered that it was my sisters birthday, so they gave her a card on that day. A cake and song was provided at dinner by several of the waitstaff. She was pleasantly surprised. We stopped in Cozumel half way during the cruise. It was my sisters 21st birthday so i arrange for Paradise Beach to set us up on the beach with chairs and umbrella. They also provided birthday balloons for her. It was a great day at the beach. The cost for the beach is only $2 per person which includes chair, umbrella, use of the new pool, and shower facilities. Lockers are also provided at a low cost of $4. Back to the ship; the deck was never too crouded as there was plenty of room for all the people. Movies were shown at night on the Big Screen, ice carving was performed during the day, towel folding class, drink mixing contests, and other activities were provided by the carnival staff. We did have a lot of food choices per day to choose from. There is also hamburger station at the back of the ship. In case you dont like beef, they had grilled chicken breasts (this wasnt anounced in any of the brochures) you just had to take the chance to go check it out and ask for it. My next cruise will be with Carnival. Thanks for making us feel at home during our trip!
