This was my second cruise, and it was a great experience! The first cruise experience I had was awful (on a different carrier), but Carnival was great! The entire staff was warm and friendly. The ship was extemely clean and well-kept. The entertainment was spectacular! I would recommend to anyone who is looking for quiet/intimate formal dining to NOT sign up for the late seating, as I heard from experienced cruisers that this seating time catered to the more raucous crowd. Thank you Carnival for a wonderful time!
