To many to list. It is mostly about how much money can we squeeze out of the guest now. So many required tips. It used to be optional. Now it isn't, $10 a day per guest, plus 15% tip on every purchase.

Food and Dining

Great service, the food has gone downhill and the selections were the same day after day.

If you have been before expect the same entertainment.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Just everyone trying to make a sell. If they did not know the answer to your questions they guessed. Guest services was awfully rude when you questioned purchase made to your card.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Nothing special, kids constantly riding elevators though, unattended, so stairs are a must.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Empress level was great for a couple and had good house cleaning.

great to sight see! freindly people, not a variety of shops. just jewelry and clothes. Every activity on the island was very expensive compared to 4 years ago. After a day or two, you will be ready to leave. Almost all beaches were blocked unless you stayed at a hotel on the island (paradise island, Atlantis).
Don't Miss: Go to the beaches all the way across the island from the port. Do some sight seeing with one of the guys on the peir. Really good!

Pros: returning home

Cons: All the hidden fees, changes in schedule.

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.
