Review summary

We picked the cruise because it left out of Charleston and was going to Bermuda. Both favorite places for us. The cost of the 7 day cruise was quite a bit more than other destinations and after finding the ship in need of maintenance we wouldn't do it again. Our cabin was clean but the drapes were spotted and mildewy with holes in them and the bathroom had a large rusted spot next to the shower that was sharp and could have been a hazard. We had to be very careful. The food was just so so. We did not have one meal that was memorable. The crew and staff were wonderful and very attentive. Our overall take was that Carnival considers Charleston a lesser port and older ships with not so good food aren't likely to change in the near future. We won't be going again and won't go on Carnival in the future.
