Review SummaryI have been on many ships, this is our second Carnival. The ship was clean and had the same layout as the Carnival Liberty so I was able to find my way around quickly. However, the decor was quite loud, too many conflicting colors and designs covering every spot. It was clean. The food was not great, the activities were very limited compared to other cruises we've taken. Our stateroom was great, we had a cabin with a balcony all the way on the top of the ship, FWD, in a perfect location. Camp Carnival for kids had very weak activities and poor selections to choose from. My 9 year old daughter has been on 5 cruises and we chose Carnival for the kids club However, she did not have fun in the club and is the type to have fun anywhere. I only went to one activity, towel folding and BINGO, not enough was offered so as usual, we just focused on the ports of call which is why we cruised. We were on a 12 day cruise, 3 of the shows were excellent, including dancers, wonderful music and costumes.
The food was ok, dinners in the dining room had a nice presentation, not always delicious, we had the worst located table in the entire dining room and were never moved. Next cruise, we are going to go on a different line and a premium level company where they cater to the passenger.
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Leaning Tower of Pisa
Don't Miss: Trevi Fountain
Don't Miss: Postitano
Pros: the ports , location of my stateroom
Cons: the decorating of the ship and the minimal assistance Carnival provides
