Was fun for a first time cruise experience. Certainly a young crowd and massive party ship. Good food and great service. Older boat but I guess we wouldn't know better never having been on a cruise before. There were some details we didn't know about or couldn't get the information on despite checking out the web site numerous times and even calling customer service before we departed. Including the nice surprise of airport check in desk .... which we would never even have known about had our luggage carousel not been right next to it. Carnival is good for a purpose but will probably try a different cruise line or experience next time.

Our stateroom attendant was fantastic and took care of and anticipated all our needs!

Ship Tip

Never much of a wait on Your Time Dining but go early so you can easily hit all the nighttime entertainment.mservice can be slow in the main dining room later. Room service menu is very limited so hit the dining establishments while they're still open.

If you are just there for a few hours, just walk. We made it all the way to Hemmingway house and Key Lime Pie with time to spare.
