As a first time cruiser I cant say I came away an excitement and desire to cruise again any time soon. The experience dealing with Carnival up to the point of sailing was difficult, a live and learn lesson for sure! Certain booking names like Early Saver & Easy Saver really make a huge difference in what you end up paying, stuff you don't know as a first time cruiser. It ended up being a very expensive vacation! We had seven travelers in all, we traveled with five young adult children. Can't recommend that this particular ship offered much for that age group. The rooms were adequate and the staff was excellent. If we were to cruise again in the future, we would most likely not cruise Carnival.
