Review summary

The ship was ugly but clean, no wow factor. Food unless you pay for it is bland. Entertainment was okay but also no wow factor. Great Cruise Director. Pools wayyyyy to small. Kid section much better than adults.The Elevators where a failure computer operated means slowwwwwww. The dinning room experience was caotic not smooth . Nothing worse than to have to wait to sit to dine and also to have to make a reservation on your phone. We cruise to get away from our phones. Overall never Carnival again.
