A bit apprehensive at the start knowing we were on a floating kiddie playground.  Surprised at how much "private" area there was available for us older cruisers to find an escape.  Overall great ship layout with plenty for everyone to do.  Somewhat disappointed in the informality of the "elegant" dining experience compare to those events on Princess cruises we have experienced.  Pizza and burgers were a hit with everyone.  Cabin (balcony) was quite nice and our location mid ship deck 8 was ideal for accessing the fun areas.  One smoker in our party was pleasantly surprised by how nice the smoking areas were.  Ashtrays did need more attention.  One bad experience in Jamaica was use of the Carnival hop on hop off bus service.  It took way too long in the terminal to pay for service with our ship charge card (which could have been done on board prior to port call) and wait in another long line for the bus.  We spent over 90 minutes of our shore time in the terminal awaiting service. We were on the Cheers beverage program and found that additional  gratuity was necessary to gain bartender attention.
