Carnival did not compensate us sufficently for cutting the cruise distance in half due to engine problems-did not travel south far enough because of this, which prevented us to enjoy warmer weather.( cut out Turks )This could be a good cruise,half moon cay is wonderful, but the swiming pools on the ship are small and the water in the hot tubs was not hot.This was dissapointing, especially in cool weather. The food was great and the employees went out of their way to be great also-the ship was staffed above what may be needed which is a good thing.
