This was our 6th Carnival Cruise. Overall experience was very good.  We found the food to be less tasty than in previous cruises and the staff not as friendly as previous cruises.  The ship was clean and there were adequate supplies and activtities.  We just love cruises and will continue to go on them, but just overall we noticed a difference, that they have cut back on expenses.

Cabin / Stateroom

Needs updating with the decor. A drawer handle was hanging down & broken in our room. Was the top drawer, so very obvious & no one addressed it.

Ship Tip

This ship rocked so much on the water. Never had been on a ship that rocked this much.

Taking a taxi downtown was a good decision. Went shopping & to Senior Frogs. They had a Starbucks next door.
