I decided to take 4 first timers on this cruise. My 2 brothers, my 6 year old nephew, and my brother's girlfriend. They had been wanting to go on a cruise and I thought this would be the perfect one since it's a large and new ship.
We drove to Port Everglades since it's 45 minutes from my house. We got lost on the way there with directions that I got from the internet. I had never been to that port.
Embarkation was super quick. It only took 30 minutes from checking in to boarding the ship.
Once we boarded the ship, we checked out our cabins. We booked ocean view connecting rooms. We were on the riviera deck. We found a letter that they left for the passengers that were in there before us that they gave them a $25 shipboard credit for a complaint about noise. We didn't encounter any noise or disturbances.
We then headed for the Lido Deck for lunch. The food was absolutely delicious. They now have a station for Thai food in addition to the oriental one that they already have. They also have a pasta station in which you choose which type of pasta you want along with the sauce and they make it right in front of you. The Lifeboat Drill was superfast.
The sail away party was a lot of fun, but they only played 2 songs and that was it. The only complaint that I have is that they did not have many activities for the guests. They neglected us because there were so many Carnival employees on board. They only had a trivia game one day and karaoke on both nights. The shows were excellent.
We never made it to the dining room because my brothers were at the Casino the whole time and we were super late for dinner. They made a large contribution to the Casino. They cannot wait until next time. We had dinner on the Lido Deck.
My Nephew loved the arcade and eating pizza and ice cream.
In Nassau we went to the Atlantis resort. We were going to do the dolphin encounter, but my nephew had a bad cold. He loved the aquarium at Atlantis Resort.
Debarkation was another story it took super long, but it didn't bother me at all because I was on a cruise and I didn't want to get off.
This ship is absolutely beautiful. I would definitely sail on it again.
