boring, old, slow, hot...

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

We have taken quite a few cruises with carnival, and in comparison, this boat is older which gives it issues with having an a/c system that doesn't really ever cool you off.  We were in one of the suites on the top of the ship, and you would think paying over $2500 for 5 nights we would stay cool, but nope. It stayed 80 degrees in our room and that was with a fan that we had to run the entire time. We were miserable, temperature wise. You can tell by looking inside the ship it just looks dated.  They preached the entire cruise about shopping, which is very boring if you don't want to shop. The dinner staff was very slow. There was only 2 of us and it would take 1 1/2 hours each night for dinner, and the food was mediocre at best (compared to the other ships). This is not a horrible cruise, but is just not up to expectations with the other cruises with carnival.

Ship Quality
A/c in our room never got cool, ruined the cruise. We can't sleep at 80 degrees. We were miserable.
Food and Dining
Slow, slow slow... inaccurate at the bars, and slow and bland at dinner
Service and Staff
Dinner waiter was polite, but slow... we really didn't associate with anyone else
very crouded
Onboard Activities
more activities with less "Shopping" would be nice
Destinations and Excursions
we enjoyed our time off the boat, in nassau and little stirrup cay
Cabin / Stateroom
A/c didnt get cool in our room. We were very miserable the entire cruise. I consider this a failure on carnival's part. 80 degrees at night is not acceptable. Other than that the room was great.
Charleston, South Carolina
The port wasn't the nicest ive ever been to, could use some upgrading, but was acceptable.
Nassau, Bahamas
Little Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
