Review summary

Not sure I will cruise on Carnival again. This cruise line tends to attract large groups traveling together. These groups sometimes made it hard to maneuver around the ship. For instance on lido deck and in the buffet they would have large groups gathered around one or two small tables.

Eat in the main dining room as much as possible to be free of the large groups that were everywhere
