This was our 3rd time cruising with carnival. That is the only cruise line we have cruised with, so I have nothing else to compare it to. But, Carnival has always been able to meet our expectations. We have now cruised in Sept, Dec, and now April. I don't know if the timing has something to do with it or if this boat was smaller and less to do than the other boats we had been on...but there was ALWAYS crowds...EVERYWHERE. Lines for food every time at every station, the food didn't seem as good as the food we had on the past cruises, and you could never find a chair on lido deck. This is by far the most crowds we experienced, and it also seemed like not as many activities going on. We took some family members that this was there first cruise, and they seemed to enjoy themselves but they didn't have the other ships, crowds and food to compare to. However, I must say that the wait staff we had in the dining room and our room steward was the best we have had by far!! They remembered each member in our party by name and spoke to us daily about how things were and our preferences. They were far above expectations.
Ports: Ochio Rios Jamica and Grand Caymon Islands.
