This was our first time cruising with Carnival and we probably won't do it again. The ship was way too crowded and you often have to wait. People were smoking at "no smoking" areas and Carnival personnel do not make an effort to correct them. I am not a picky eater but I will say that the food was poor. Carnival seemed to focus more on quantity and not the quality of their food. The buffet lines are unorganized and our dining experience was terrible. Their scheduled shows never start on time as they seem to always run 30-45 minutes behind schedule. Plus, we occassionally get a sewer like smell....not sure where it is coming from?

Pros: the water slides

Cons: too much to mention
