We had a good time on this cruise. First time on Carnival. Previously only been on Disney. Overall the staff was friendly, ship and quarters clean and activities and entertainment were good. Only 3 complaints. First, the food left a lot to be desired. Admittedly, I am probably a bit snobby with food as I cook myself but none of the food really tasted good. Even the dinner plates were bland and generally not good. Second, the bedding was not changed daily, only remade. We had some stains from some wine and the next day the bed was nicely made but the stains still there. Third, the disembarking was painful. Long lines, a lot of confusion and a very long wait....
