Carnival was a big disappointment for the amout of money we spent, the boat smelled like a garage can,the servers were not friendly the servers looked over tired, the portions were very small, I ordered a chicken ceaser she gave me a piece of chicken when i asked if i can have another piece,I was given a rude look.The spots for the cruise were amazing,but other than that I would have expect more from this cruiseline we have cruise with carnival most of the time but after this time I will be switching to another cruiseline

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
the staff of the ship was not friendly, staff members we not smiling always looking tired, There was never any room in the gathering dining room due to large amount of dirty tables that were not getting cleaned asap. Most of the time we had to take out food to the room or we were waiting for a table to be cleaned, and when we ask to have the table to me cleaning they would take there time. There was no team work or buddy system to help each other our

Ship Quality

the ship was not clean and it smelled very bad. Our stateroom was dirty when we went to it the first time dirty trash in the room. we found someone else shoes in the room from the previous cruise, we also found empty water bottles and old food wrapers in the room, not a great first impression. When we went to the front desk they did noting. We had removed the trash ourselvers, also found hair in the shower
