I was initially concerned that this ship would be a little tired since it's one of the oldest in the Carnival fleet but I needn't have worried. The cabins were comfortable and clean and the public areas of the ship are in good condition. But the best part about this cruise was definitely the crew, they were just spectacular. Remembering names, anticipating every need, friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the stop in Key West but were slightly disappointed with Cozumel since we weren't able to get off the ship until after 3pm so we didn't have much daylight left. Other than that, it was a great trip. 

Cabin / Stateroom
We had an extended aft balcony cabin for the first time and really enjoyed the extra space on the balcony.
