This was our first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. But we all had a great time. My kids loved all the activities at Camp Carnival. We loved eating around the clock. The ship was late to arrive. We couldn't board until after 7 o'clock. But everyone came together to get us on board with a smile on our face. The ship was small and felt a bit cramped. The elevators were not all working properly. And one didn't work at all. Also we came home missing a suitcase. Carnival was helpful in helping us look on the port, but it was never found. The help us fill out a claim form and will keep us updated. I would cruise again, but i think i would like a bigger boat next time.
