Liked the serenity area, room service, room attendant service..
Did not like formal dining experience. Very very poor service. Even on formal night, there were individuals in dining area that wore ball caps. I did not like the too relaxed atmosphere in the dining room. That is what I enjoy most-formal, dressy attire with good service. This was not the case on this ship. The head wait staff member never spoke with us in the dining room. This was a first for us. While this is not a necessity, it all reverts back to the atmosphere in the dining room being poor. The waiter assigned to the tables nearby was almost running to see that his tables received great service. Our waiter did not appear concerned with his table's service. He was confused most of the time, often referring back to his order pad.
I will likely not book another carnival cruise due to this.

This only applies to our waiter in the formal dining area. All others were great!

This was the first cruise where we actually heard the thumping speakers from the club 3 levels above us in our room.

Pros: serenity area

Cons: formal dining room experience
