We didn't have trouble with motion sickness surprisingly but we choose to stay at the bottom of the ship. Now that we know it isn't a issue we will try for a suite next time. Oh, when you get a king size bed; realized that means 2 twins pushed together so you have a line down the bed.

I loved eating breakfast on the Lido deck. They had short lines and I loved the omelets they made for us

Don't believe the bad reviews. There are some people that can't say anything good about anything. Make your own experience. I am so glad I gave Carnival a chance !!! I will be doing this again and again !!!

No children? Definitely check out the Serenity Deck, a lounging area with two jacuzzi's for adults only . Super comfy lounges, conveniently located aft, right below the lido deck so grabbing a snack or drink was super easy.

The omelet buffet on the Lido deck is very good. Always, always get the chocolate melting cake!

The best foods were in the aft part of the ship. Avoid the pizza place, it's pathetic. Get to the pool early if you want a lounge chair and to actually use the pool.

We had a great attitude so it was easy to have fun, relax and enjoy. There were people who would cut lines, and expect to be served on hand & foot all the time. Did not let us be bothered by them. The ship is great for first time cruisers, for families and kids. The bathrooms needs to be updated

Figure out where and what time your meals are served for some really good food. Plan your excursions so you don't feel rushed. Pick your room on above or below the action preferably floor six. Our one of the sites above the Lido deck

Experience all the activities and shows possible. Have a few days to rest up from your cruise when you return. Do NOT go dieting. Be prepared to gain a few pounds; however, you will lose it easily when you return home eating normal again.

I would say, "It's not about the ship, but about the people you're with."

If it is your first cruise-book your shore excursions through Carnival-you will have less worry if there are issues whether you may not get back to ship on time. Next trip you will be more familiar to do the bookings elsewhere.

The ship's maiden voyage was in 1991 and the decor hasn't changed. If you can overlook the brass and bright carpet throughout and seek out the pool, whirlpools, variety of dining options, live music, a casino, and duty-free shopping, then you'll have a fantastic time!

The lido is the place for short food lines and diverse fare but the dining rooms are well worth the short wait.The layout of the ship is easily learned and easily accessible.

Try Anytime dining. It is nice to have choices around what time you want to eat especially when you go ashore.

Make the effort to get up early and watch the sun rise/ get breakfast. It's totally worth it!!!

The dine when you like is a terrific option. Really enjoyed the relaxed time constraints.

If you are a drinker, have a few drinks but just enough to loosen up. Lay back on the deck at night. FORGET ABOUT WORK and ENJOY YOURSELF!! Make sure you are on time for your dinner time. Finally, once the boat docks wherever you are going EXPLORE!!!!!!!!

Don't skip out on the dining room - every night is a unique experience! And if you plan to drink, invest in the Cheers program.

Carry a map with you. This ship is sectioned strangely and the comment "you can't get there from here" often applies.

Carnival proivides free transportation from its dock to the downtown area. Use it as the drivers provide a running commentary on the area.
