Review summary

The Dr Suess breakfast is worth going! The food was great and plentiful! My 7 yr old didn't really care for camp ocean, but loved the arcade, a bit expensive though. The ports we visited were amazing! Wouldn't pick Carnival again though. The ships layout was weird, too much smoke, it was excessive. The pool is small and the 1 waterslide hurts your back going down. Very Rocky, never been sea sick until this trip. The free room service options menu is not good. The ship needs maintenance, there were glass windows that were cracked pretty bad in the buffet room. I think the ship must be older, the Freedom. Our cabin had no tub and the separation door on the balcony kept coming loose and opening. It also rattled all night long. We were on deck 6, over the casino, very loud at night.

Too many activities to do with drinking and not enough family activities.

Babylon Casino

You could smell the smoke from the casino, that's on deck 5, on other floors as well! We were on deck 6 and couldn't take the stairs because it was so bad. We had to take the elevator to bypass the smell. It was awful.
