The ship was relatively small, but I guess you pretty much get what you pay for. My main con was the sloppiness of . We were promised a window in our stateroom by , and there wasn't one. Also, we were a group of four who booked all together, and yet we were placed at different tables for dinner, as well as not given the seating time we requested (and we were not notified about any of this until we boarded the ship - how convenient for ). We were flying into Miami to take the cruise and advised by our agent to be sure and not book a flight home from Miami any earlier than 3 PM. Debarkation was at 9:30 AM (which we were not told) and the ride to the airport was about 15 minutes. So we were stuck at the airport for about 7 hours because we booked flights leaving at 5 PM as per the advice of our Agent. I would probably not take another cruise with Carnival, and I would definitely not book with .

Pros: Friendly servers, good quality food (ONLY in the dining rooms, not the buffet), clean staterooms

Cons: Lack of activities on board, it's a relatively small ship, the buffet food was sub par
