Well to start didn't like this ship at all - not layed out well.  Couldn't find places easily everything was really spreaded out. Love Guy's burger and the taco bar - these were the best additionals to Carnival's line. Fat Jimmy's BBQ is a joke;it is only open on sea days for 2.5 hrs - you get the impression it is an open air BBQ joint -it is nothing more than a very limited buffet outside.  Not impressed and actually it was so hard to find the place by the chance i found it i was on my last 2 days of the cruise.  Food was not good - Carnival was known for really good food.  We went to the speciality restaurant and had to send our steaks back - they were the spice rub rib eye's - they lack favor.  However, when we sent them back and complained - the chef quickly made it right  the replacement steaks were excellent. Also we waited a really long time for food - dinners were taking 2.5 hrs to complete - it was really ridiculous. Also Carnival has changed so many of their policies and not alerting the guest it is made for an already funky trip worst.  They don't tell you they no longer bring liquor purchased is no longer delivered to your stateroom; so you can't pack it until you are in the terminal when retrieving hour luggage.  Also you can't pick up your liquor until 6:30am. I was looking forward to using luggage valet because my husband is handicapp and that would have made things so much easier - well we never received the sheet with the information in our stateroom and of course when we found out it was too late to utilize the service.  And to make matters worst I was in a group of 13 people 5 which were handicapped - every time we called guest services to get information we were given wrong information. It is a joke - i will never go on another Carnival ship -

Not enough to do for children between 9yrs and 16yrs. My kids spent most of their time in the pool or with us because there was nothing going on for them. The camp carnival use to be much better
