Review SummaryThe ship was the rockiest ship I've ever been on. It felt as though a five year old were steering it, even in the nicest of weather.
The matire de and guest services messed up our dinner plan - though it was eventually fixed more than halfway through the cruise.
The ship was not as nice as the Princess cruise I was on. While both were about the same size, Carnival had more staterooms and fewer gathering and dining spots, so it was not relaxing.
Finally, the hallway our stateroom was on smelled like feces every day. It was severely gross.
The only redeeming quality was that there was always an event to attend. The cruise director did a great job planning a variety of activities for all ages and interests.

Don't Miss: The shopping here was really nice.
Don't Miss: You better Belize that it was the cave tubing! :-)
Don't Miss: The water was beautiful.
Don't Miss: They had monkeys to pet everywhere you went! (I love monkeys.)
Pros: The waiters/waitresses we had were very nice, as was our housekeeper. The events were plentiful.
Cons: It was overcrowded, dinner reservations were frustrating, and smelly.
