I had a wonderful time. Everyone was very friendly. I had a great registration experience. The only negative thing that  I can say about carnival was that check out was unorganized. There was bit of confusion when checking out to leave off the ship. It was told if you put your luggage in front of your door the night before that it would be a little easier or a little smooth when departing off of the ship. Well, that's not true. It seems to me its better to carry your own luggage of the ship so that you don't have to wait hours to get off.  You will have a long wait time to get off the boat and you will be stuck to the back of a very long line. After waiting for and hour we started noticing that people were just getting in the line to depart off the ship with out their luggage so we did the same, only to find out that our luggage were in this room with thousands of others. There wasn't any one directing us on where we could pick our  luggage up, and others that were later called to depart off the ship,  whom put there luggage outside their door the night before were getting off the ship very confused and cutting through the lines trying to figure out what zone there luggage was in.

Our cabin was ok. It just took a while for them to come and clean our room
