Had a wonderful time.  The food was great.  The room was clean and the service was excellent.  The only thing that could have been better would have been if they had a kiddie pool for the small children.  The entire pool was about 5 feet so the children spent their time in the whirlpools.  Over all, it was a good trip and you can't beat the price.  I have been on a Royal Caribbean cruise and the difference was really that Carnival was much more relaxed.  We enjoyed not having to dress up for dinner!

shopping is better and cheaper here. we went to the beach on our own. we did not book excursion through the ship and it was much cheaper for the same thing.
