I do not think I got my moneys worth. the service was not like other cruses I have sailed with. the drinks were TERRIBLE.... imagine going 5 days without a good cup of Coffee !! the staff was not as freindly as other cruses... I will not take a Carnival cruse again.
I paid for a room with a veiw.. the windows were so dirty, I could not enjoy it...

nice big state room. it was always very clean. I have no complaints about my state room, except the last night the porter took our beach towels..and did not replace them. . I worried all night that I would have to pay for them, the window was so dirty, we could not enjoy the veiw.
