The cruise was fantastic.

The room was kept very clean.

The food was definitely lower quality than prior Carnival cruises. The food selections, were ok, because we could get a good burger if we didn't like the buffet. The buffet would be served better by having more common American foods. The drinks were very lacking in variety. The Mexican food was not a very good variety, and it tasted lousy. The variety of food for late night eating was very disappointing. Pizza and ice cream are not good choices for very late eating.

We saw 3 shows but only one was worth the time.

I was disappointed in the selection of movies. It would have been nice to have some new comedy movie.

The steak house was good.

The slot machines were so incredibly tight, I rarely saw anyone hit and when they did, they were already so far down, they still didn't make their money back. I play in a lot of different casinos, and this by far was the tightest.

The cruise ship workers were great from the dining room to the stewards, they were all fantastic, and very knowledgeable.

The ports were good, but it would have been nice to add 1 more port on a 7 day cruise.
