Room Type: Suite

First cruise ever, it was a great experience from our room, to the food and the employees at Carnival. I felt relaxed, even though there were a lot of people I never felt crowded. We did not take advantage of all the activities that were offered as we were content with just relaxing on the deck with a good book and cocktail, but if we needed something to do there would have been an abundance of choices. The ports were exciting, well directed excursions with tons of shopping. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Would definitely suggest the suites....having the balcony came in handy
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions

I had no idea that the pools were salt water, makes sense for sure but that first dip in the water was a salty surprise!
