It's better than "poor" but less than "good"

Room Type: Oceanview

It was a disappointing ship. The pool was not large enough for the number of passengers. The salt level in the pool was extremely high, leaving a coating on your skin. There was also nothing exciting going on around the pool.There were not enough for the children to do. No ice skating, rock climbing, bungee jumping, a really small arcade. The shower in the cabin was nasty. It was larger than most but there was heavy mold in the grout.Β Β It needs a heavy bleaching. The shows were outstanding and above average. The food was also pretty good. I probably won't sail on Carnival again.

Cabin / Stateroom Cabin was ok. Beds were really comfortable. Bathroom grout was horrible.

The memorable part of the trip was swimming in the beautiful ocean in ports. Everything else was unmemorable.
