Ship was okay.  Cigarette smoke could be smelled in hallways going to our non-smoking room.  Had to go thru Casino for most everything...smoke was irritating and thick.  Since most passengers are non-smokers, Carnival needs to consider the majority of their customers, not just the smokers.

Bed linens were soiled when we arrived to our room. After opening comforter sheets has soil on them. We requested change immediately and they were quickly changed.
Jacksonville, Florida
Line to board boat was massive. Disorderly with people carrying luggage in line, slowing whole process down. No one took control of keeping luggage out of boarding passengers.
Nassau, Bahamas
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)


Dining rooms are on schedule to get your served and out of there. Don't plan on ordering a drink and relaxing before your order dinner. Not an option. First thing, they want your dinner order. Several times we had to let them know we wanted a cocktail first then we'd decide.
