Review summary

We had a wonderful time cruising with our dear friends. The service by all the staff was excellent! We really enjoyed the adults only deck (Serenity). The pools and hot tubs were very crowded. We were in cabin 2473. It was very quiet until we docked in port. Then the whole cabin vibrated and the noise woke us up. The Mongolian Wok was great as was the BBQ place on deck 5. The sea day brunch was quite nice. We ate in the dining room every night. The service was wonderful but the food was very inconsistent. Some of it was excellent, some was not very good and the rest was in between. All of the shrimp dishes were good but the prime rib wasn't very good. We were on the Carnival Glory 4 years ago and it had much better food.
