Review summary

Crew seemed short staffed. Few excelled in customer service but the ones that did were great. Beautiful ship. Lobby atrium congested during shows especially when trying to take pics and patrons lined up to get into Reflection dining room. On a whole, love cruising and would definitely go again. This was my 8 th Carnival cruise.

Great because of wheelchair assistance but the transport aid wouldn’t take us to the sculpting imaging booth.
