Review summary

The food was terrible. The best meal we had was at the steakhouse which we had to pay extra for. They close down the majority of the food from 2:30-5:30 and when you have an 8:15 dinner reservation and a 7 year old with you they need to eat somewhere between lunch and 8:15. The free room service is nasty cold sandwiches. Even the choices of things you can pay extra for on room service are not good choices. When you book your cruise and read about the ship you find so many different things to do on board. Well, a ton of them have extra fees attached. Like the movie theater, bingo, the arcade, etc. The teenagers on board make it almost impossible to enjoy mini-golf. The pool is basically un-useable. There are two pools about the size of back yard pools for 4800 people! If you can squeeze in one of them you are elbow to elbow in a pool that is heated way too warm for the middle of the ocean. It feels like being in an overcrowded bathtub. This was our first cruise and I'm not sure cruising is for us after this experience. If we do try again it will not be on Carnival.

The servers were amazing! The food was mediocre. One night I ordered a steak cooked medium and they had to bring out three steaks because the first two were beyond well done. I didn't even mention it, the server came by and saw it for himself and insisted on taking it back.

The massage was great but the 15 minute up-sell on products and booking more services afterward ruined my zen state.

Mini Golf

So fun to have this as an option but the whole thing needs to be re-done. Most of the holes have ripped fabric and some were broken and taped off. I know that most of the damage is from teenagers on the ship but, they really need to put some work in to this and maybe station a security guard in the area.

Tides Pool

So gross and over-heated. Way too small for the number of guests on board.

Beach Pool

1 out of 5

Too small for the amount of guests on board. Heated to an uncomfortable temperature considering being in Central America.
