Review summary

Overall the cruise was a very good time, the days we were out to sea, there was plenty of short programs (games, entertainment, etc.) to keep us occupied. Going to the excursions was great. You need to announce the time changes on the intercom, drink packages need to begin day 1, once out to sea, or maybe from from 6pm on. Hand sanitizers is a must, you need to have those at least going into the dining rooms.

Signs would have made where luggage should be dropped off and where the line begins to ck in.

Food and Dining

Specialty restaurants were great, buffet scrambled eggs need to of better quality, omelettes were excellent. Sushi - to die for!, soooo good! I'm surprised and disappointed there weren't sanitizer machines to dispense, whether or not the coronavirus is an issue!!!!!!!!!! Drink package should be available the first day, once we start sailing!!!!!

All were very nice and courteous, I hope you pay them well. The animal towels always made me smile and made my day. I loved my room steward.

The only issue I have with my cabin was the hair dryer. The dryer is installed through a drawer which is pretty neat, but if that's the case you need to install a longer cord. I'm short and I had to bend over awkwardly to dry my hair and not hit my head on the drawer! Can't imagine what a tall person goes through. Some pillows smelled dirty, not all.

Ship tip

It's a nice Cruise, alot of people, Carnival does good/very good with the amount of people on it.

Communication from the crew needs to be shared with us. We were waiting in the Encore, they wouldn't tell us how much longer we needed to wait, some folks had early flights.
