Our 5 day cruise was a bit disappointing. We picked it because of the timing. Check in was actually better than we expected, but as soon as we were on board it seemed like every which way we turned, Carnival had their hands out for more money and it distracted from our vacation.
The service was great, the food was basic, entertainment was good, afraid the service staff is overworked, debarkation went well, disappointed with meeting the crew, and probably won't go on a cruise for a good while or at least not with Carnival.
The ship was beautifully decorated for the holidays. And that is that. Thanks for asking! Feedback is a gift.

Be wary of the excursions. They can cost a lot and you don't always know how much of a bus ride you might be taking and many times you can find alternatives for doing the same excursions for much, much less. Might also want to wait until the weather to see what makes sense for you.
