This was our first cruise, so I have nothing to compare our experience to. We enjoyed several things about our trip, and also found ourselves disappointed by stuff.
Good: Most of the staff was friendly, ship was clean, pizza and deli were good, serenity deck for adults was appreciated (but crowded), comedy club was entertaining.
Bad: Food overall was underwhelming, poor service (and food) in the dining room, pool area was small and packed, not a lot of amenities.
Honestly, we probably will not pick a Carnival cruise in the future, but for a first cruise experience, we enjoyed ourselves for the most part.

Buffets get really crowded, so be prepared to stand in line. Also, when you reach a destination port (Cozumel) you get off the ship on a lower deck, not the Empress deck which you originally entered.
