I booked this cruise as it was going to be in Grand Cayman on my wife's birthday (we love Grand Cayman's 7 mile beach). Overall...the ship is older but very well maintained...it is also smaller than most of the other ships we have cruised on. Luckily...the weather was great and the gulf was not rough...so it was pretty much smooth sailing. Our room was what we expected...nothing fancy but comfortable...loved the big TV...just wished there were more channels to choose from. We tried to stay away from the buffet but it looked edible. We pretty much ate in Elations Dining room...the food was good but nothing notable. The service was excellent and our servers were attentive. Our room steward...Lauro...was great...the room was always clean and we always had ice in the ice bucket. We don't drink so didn't have any comments on the bartenders service. The one pool was always crowded and loud so we hung on the Serenity deck. Only had a couple of shows and they were both good...especially Epic Rock. This will probably be our last cruise with Carnival as we enjoyed MSC a lot better.

The room was clean and relatively comfortable. Loved the large TV but wished there were more channels to choose from.

7 mile beach is the best!!!

Rented a car and drove to Chen Rio (on the other side of the island. Not crowded and the Il Pescador restaurant is very good.
