The only thing bad about Carnival is they over charge for alcohol.  They automatically add 15% to all drinks for gratuity.   I feel it is my choice to tip a waiter or bartender with out being force to.  And when you go into the main dining room and order a $30 bottle of wine they charge a $10 corking fee to open the wine.  For $10 I can open my own wine.  Also watch you bill.  At the end of the cruise they will add $12 per day per person for gratuity. A total of $192 and if you are not watching it gets added and you have no say.  Had to wait in a long slow line to get it removed.  Most people don't check so they get charged.  Other than that nice time.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin Stewart was excellent.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Looong lines to wait in. Every time we reboarded the ship it was like a search by a prison guard.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Pools always crowded. Hard to find a lounge chair. People place items in chairs and leave.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Food was great. Had some problems with the service in the main dining room. Very Slow. Took about an hour and fifteen minutes to have dinner. Not enough waiters. They had so many tables they continually missed the little things you expect from a great restaurant.
