Ship was great! With a few exceptions, The embarkation was fine, but getting off was horrible, It took 2 hours before we were called to leave the ship. Staff was unbelievable! Very crowded, but not to the point where it ever was an issue. The food was delicious. If you want entertainment and good food go the dinning area. If you want your monies worth then all means go to the buffet. The elevators were either very slow and you ended up using the stairs, or they just didn't work at all (no good for the older folks on board). If the booking office promises anything, make sure its in writing before boarding the ship or a reason why it wasn't given. I was on the Dutch cruise leaving San Juan on Dec 10, 2000. The cruise was very relaxing. My only problem was that the time spent in Aruba was too short.Have fun in the sun or relax and let the superb Room Services facilities spoil you (My wife enjoyed the animals created each night by the steward). Do not expect perfection, we are all human, but, enjoy fun, relaxation, good food, sun and choice on a wonderful vacation Even though this was my first cruise, I would recommend Carnival Cruises to anyone who wants to go on a cruise. I talked to people from other cruise ships, and they said carnival was the best. I will be taking another Carnival Cruise within the next two year, If not sooner!LC New Jersey
