The ship was large and very clean. The crew was constantly making sure it was immaculate. The staff was very friendly and helpful, as always. Main dining room food was great with many choices and as many servings as you would like. Plenty of other dining choices. From the dancing waiters to the animal towels in our room, the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The entertainment was excellent and since we went a week before Christmas the ship was nicely decorated for the holiday. They even had a holiday show where all the children from camp carnival went on stage and sang songs. The casino was always booming and the pool slide was a big hit. There was lots of shopping and swimming in the ports. All the ports were very nice. On our last Carnival Cruise the waiters in the main dining room put on a show every night and I looked forward to it. On this cruise there were only 3 nights that the servers performed and although they did a great job I wanted more. Also, prior to sailing we were told we would get refunded our fuel charge with an onboard credit but once onboard we did not receive it which is disappointing. Overall highly recommended!!!!
