My first cruise with Carnival was a fairy tale. I was sooo impressed with every detail. This time I felt like I was just a number going through.

The ship was way too crowded, not enough seats to accomadate the guests in smoking area and on decks.

Only one smoking area, with not enough seats, and if you did find an empty seat, it was beeing saved for some one, and music that was so loud you could not have a conversation with some one who was beside of you.

When I was in the casino using the slot machines, my husband was with me and he was told he was keeping others from playing (he was not playing, just spending time with me) so he sat in the window and he was told he could not do that either.
