It was "ok"

Sail Date: July 03, 2016

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

I purchased a balcony suite for this cruise. It was a beautiful room, but the dust that had built up in there over time was inexcusable. There were a few minor problems (broken closet door, no tv remote, no tv service, etc) as well.  The staff was friendly and willingness ng to help, but response time left something to be desired. The main dining room service was extremely slow, albeit friendly and fun. The decor throughout the ship was dated, but generally clean and well maintained. The nightly show was excellent, and a highlight of our cruise, and the deck party midnight buffet was impressive.

Carnival Live Concert
Great concert, but considering the number of obstructed view seats, they ship oversold the venue. We watched from behind a pole. Get there very early for the concert, and skip the main dining room for dinner-- the slow service won't let you make it to the seats in time.
