Fair experience as expected but nothing too exciting or memorable...
As expected, good food, good service all around, comfortable rooms but unexpectedly, low level & very POOR entertainment & especially since Carnival prides itself on being a "family" type cruise line to attract families with children
(& there were a lot of children on-board), the entertainment in most cases was NOT suitable for children & sometime even borderlines on being X rated!
Also on a personal note:
On the Cruise's 3rd day at sundown, Rosh-Hashannah begun IE: the Jewish New-Year which is one of the MOST IMPORTANT HOLIDAYS on the Jewish Calendar & there was NO (zero) public announcement, any mentioning, greetings & or good wishes from the cruise management or stuff nor anything was offered to the Jewish passengers like some Holiday symbols such as candles, Challah bread or the very inexpensive sweet Kosher wine thus, this show of indifference & disrespect was very OFFENSIVE & disappointing.
FYI: other cruise lines I have been on do offer on Friday nights a Shabbat Service to those who are interested & I can assume that something was announced & or offered also, for this important Holiday.
