This is my first commercial cruise (10 years in the Navy - it wasn't at all like this...). The stateroom was clean and comfortable; the stewards and stewardesses were friendly and efficient; the dining staff were also extremely gracious and efficient,except for one waiter at breakfast - best described as 'frazzled'. The food was good, except for the Eggs Benedict (2 orders, way over-cooked), and the choices were varied. Considering the number of meals served each day, the food was pretty good.
The on-board entertainment was top quality. The ship stores carried a wide variety of merchandise at reasonable prices. We also enjoyed just relaxing, with no pressure to do anything we didn't want to.
My wife and I are already talking about doing it again. and it will probably be with Carnival Lines

We only visited the local straw market to buy souvenirs.
