This was our 4th cruise and we love the other ships we have sailed on but the fascination was lacking in cleanliness , service and food quality. Food was 50/50, some things were just as good as other ships while some were just not good at all. The staff let dishes pile up on tables, on other ships they would clean them up right away. There were many times we would grab a fresh dish and it would be dirty. There was even lipstick on what was suppose to be a clean glass. We had to keep asking our cabin stewart for towels . she would take the dirty and not replace them. There was also a urine small in a couple of the main hallways throughout the cruise. Many others complained of the smells as well.

Good was not as good as our past carnival cruises. The service was somewhat lacking on this ship as well. Dishes piled up on tables and we found many dirty dishes where clean ones were.

Our cabin was not very clean when we first arrived and our towels were not replaced on several occasions after it was cleaned.
