1st time on this ship. I've cruise 7 times, only 2nd time on Carnival. The weather was
not very good except in ports so we spent more time inside. I thought finding your way around the ship was a little confusing. Deck info listed inside elevator needs to be more detailed & stay lit at all times. Elevator buttons were only listed by deck name so if you weren't sure where you were going, it was confusing.
Disembarkment was very slow, though not Carnivals fault. Too many smoking places. Entertainment midship
by bar was poor location as main hallways went between entertainment & people at bar. Everyone was very friendly except the guy selling cigs & liquor.
Really liked the Anytime Dining plan where we could go to Dining Room anytime between
6-9PM & be seated. Never had to wait hardly anytime. Great feature.
