Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Layout was a bit confusing, but I think that’s a function of the age of the ship. Design was gaudy, but my kids loved all the colors. Ship was clean, and maintained well.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin is small, but Dennis the steward was amazing

Took forever, but that wasn’t Carnivals fault. Customs had only 2 people working for 4 ships coming in.
