After returning from the cruise I have heard a lot of negative feed back about Carnival, and especially this ship. Our destinations and excursions were important to us. We can't get back the time we spent, we simply can't reschedule Jamaica and Grand Cayman. Our time and money is what we lost on this trip. We spent money flying to Miami, our hotel stay in Miami, transport to the cruise terminal, and the cost of the cruise. It simply wouldn't be worth the time and money and planning to go on this ship again. The compensation of $75 on board credit didn't do justice. It felt like a rip off, we left late from the start, and only had from 11pm onward to the next morning in Nassau Bahamas, not the 2 days we could have spent in Grand Cayman and Ocho Rios. Carnival needs to dry dock this boat and take care of the maintainence issues that it has, rather than sending it out to sea full of people who end up being held hostage on the ship. 5 night cruise, only off the ship for a few hours.

Pros: Nice staff, affordable cruise,

Cons: We did not get off the boat enough.
