Awesome Cruise

Jul 22nd, 2019

This was my second cruise and my children first time cruising. My son danced the night away every night and won a medal from the crew. It was laid back for myself being a senior citizen but I participated in the excursion cave. Old ship but it was well kept and the captain was so sociable unlike the captain of my 1st cruise on the Liberty. It totaled surprised how active he was with the quest and wasn’t expecting the laid back attitude as stated the last cruise ship I saw the tail end of the captain leaving the Captain ball but it was stated he had emergency. The staff made the difference as supposing to a nuisance of the heavy drinkers he got a pass-lol. Gotta try Guys Burgers and the eggs Benedict, they’re so delicious the lines are limited on the hours and quite lengthy. Overall I’m on my 3rd cruise and we’re going with the cove balcony on the Vista! Can’t wait to get on that sky ride and that’s the kid coming out this overly active senior citizen. But I’m gonna be laid-back at the resort and do the ATV rough ride I’m Cozumel. Live your BEST life cruisers because you can’t get enough of the Carnival.

We were sailing in the middle of a hurricane and I realize that weather cannot be controlled and being on a ship is just one of the things that makes a trip during a hurricane very uncomfortable, but the trip was not a very pleasant experience due to the embarkation issues, the weather and the bed. The food was not good (except for the steakhouse) I highly recommend the steakhouse. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. We had the beds pushed together to make a king, but there needs to be a better way of handling that because I kept falling into the middle of the bed where it separated, and it was horrible. I never got one good night of sleep the entire trip.
