advertises carnival cash, but you will never get any of it. They have language so that they can deny you the money. I am also pretty sure this post will not get posted too.
The ship is generally clean and nice, but the finish is loud and gaudy.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was good. Great sandwiches. Deserts were less then good.


1 out of 5
Entertainment was not very good. seems like maybe they have cut the budget. Live music was more like a DJ

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
They have lots for kids to do.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Most staff were great. Only one we had a problem with were some of the drink servers. They are a little pushy about selling drinks.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Decor- what is with the orange painted rooms/hallways? Maybe they get a good deal on orange paint.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Rooms were fairly big compared to other ships I have been on. Ugly interior, but clean and functional.

Cons: adverstises 100 cash back, but does not deliver
