After being on Carnival's newest and largest ships it is probably not fair to compare them, but it was a let down. The crew members were very nice and friendly, altho service in the main dining room was very slow and the food was only fair. Guy Fiero Hamburgers were great as was Blue Iguana cantina.The self serve ice cream machine was broken the first day. Night shows were very good. No outside movies as on larger ships. The locker room has electronic locks on the storage bins which were extremely frustrating to use. They should go back to a key system. Downtown Ensenada is clean and the 7 blocks of shopping safe. La Bufadora (Blowhole) excursion was interesting but go in the morning before the crowds.
