Overall - it was a very good cruise.  My biggest complaint was there were just to many people. You had to wait in so many long lines! Not enough room on the pool deck nor not near enough lounge chairs and/or tables with chairs.  It was almost a fight for them.  The bathrooms could have been cleaner.  The one by the pool deck on embarkation day was closed for repairs.  You had to walk quite a ways to find another bathroom.  Some of the locks on the bathroom stall doors did not work or you could not get the doors shut.  There also did not seem to be a lot of hand sanitizers on the ship.  When you did find one, it was either empty or not working.  The Caribbean Steel band that played was great....just too LOUD!  Almost all of the live music was just so loud you had to shout to have a conversation.  Loved the music videos they played on the pool deck.  Volume was perfect!  Carnival has the BEST pizza...ever!  And it is available 24/7.  Food was also great.  Most desserts were a little strange.  Service on the ship was great.  Most of all the employees we ran into on the ship were very friendly!  Overall - it was still a great cruise!
