First of all, we love cruising. This was our third Carnival cruise. We were impressed with the ambiance of the ship. There were special amenities like the Serenity Deck. There was lots to do. However, the food on the Lido deck, breakfast/lunch was not very inviting. Most of the time the food was cold and there wasn't any variation to the food. At the fine dining the food was good, but not exceptional. The service seemed much slower than in other cruises we have taken. Choosing the Anytime seating on this cruise was a huge mistake. It was very frustrating and after waiting in line they hand you a beeper so you can wait some more. We had Anytime seating on the last Carnival Cruise and they had a special line that went very smoothly and fast. The shows were good especially the Illutionist. It was awesome! Halifax, Nova Scotia was beautiful, lots to do and we were lucky to experience the Tall Ships. As far as St. John, New could have skipped it. Absolutely very little to do. Took an excursion on the Pink Bus and saw nothing. It was a total waste of money. Debarktation was very smooth. All in all, I needed a vacation and it was great getting away.

Pros: Decor of the ship, no cleaning, cooking.

Cons: Food in the Lido Deck, Anytime Seating, custom paper and tags were not delivered to room.
