Review summary

Overall it was a good cruise. Though I will say on this cruise that it felt like the crew was really forcing it to be nice to the customers. Probably won't take this cruise again.

We were made to leave our rooms at 8:30 and disembarkation had just started. In the past we have been allowed to stay in our room. We ended up sitting on the floor on deck 5 after lugging all out suitcases down the stairs. The most disorganized disembarkation have experienced on Carnival.
