Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The main dining room seem to be understaffed. We had long waits for our food. The food on this Cruise seemed not to measure up to the usual Carnival Food.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the music and the shows.


5 out of 5
We enjoyed them all.

Children's Programs

We didn't have any children with us.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
D waiters Andrew Stewart for excellent. I gave a okay rating because of the service time in the main dining room. This was not the fault of the Waiters. There seem to be a lack of staff and the waiters had too many tables to handle. in years past the waitress seem to have time to talk to you. This was most appreciable. I say again, this is not the waiters fault. Also I want to say, the maitre d never came by our table. That was not appreciated. He has in all other cruises.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
everything was good. I have sailed on this ship many times.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
the cabin was nice, but I did not like the balcony because of the lack of privacy and the lights that shined in your eyes from the deck below. the big problem that I have with Carnival, is that they have a lack of handicap available rooms. My wife is handicapped and cannot get into the bathroom very easily.
