I am getting this 4 stars even though this is not the nicest boat that I’ve ever been on, because I just had an amazing time. This was a mother/daughter trip and it was lovely. Although this is one of the smaller ships that I’ve sailed on, it was quite fun. But there were (as with anything else) pros and cons. PROS: This is a pretty laid-back ship which was perfect for relaxation… If that’s what you are looking for this is the boat for you. There are lots of daily activities to keep you busy and you’ll receive a list of these each morning in the daily flyer. I LOVE the running track being at the top of the boat. The main dining room staff are a hoot! There is a nice shopping area with lots of great deals. I’ve been on this boat three times… Twice in the interior rooms and once in the balcony room.... I would certainly suggest the balcony. The interior rooms are very gloomy. The layout of the boat is very user-friendly and easy to get used to. The pool movie theater is very fun. CONS: The spa staff are very pushy… Almost to the point where it becomes quite unprofessional The way they upsell. The spa prices are already unreasonable, this makes visit the spa on this boat rather discouraging. Some of the activities are rather boring. My greatest complaint on this boat is the shows are all music best, and all inappropriate. In fact they are quite raunchy. A bit distasteful if you ask me. It is a Carmival cruise so the caliber of guests is a little lower than your average cruiser. The Decour of the boat is mad 80’s.

Amazing Time!!
