Review summary

In the last 3 years we have taken cruises with another cruise line and coming back to Carnival was not as we remembered. The food in the buffet was not very good and the layout of this particular ship not my preference. I was looking forward to the new feature of the sky bike on this ship and it was non functioning. The pool was very small and the wait time for the smart elevators VERY long.

The staff in the main dining room was excellent (special thanks to Jhon the shot man, so nice and helpful with everything) The food at the buffets were not as good as years past.

I hate the smart elevator! We spent so much time waiting on the elevators :(

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I had asked originally at booking for the beds to be separated, they were not, I did not ask after we got to the cabin. We had a tub and I really enjoyed that. The room was comfortable and well laid out.

Ship tip

choose a ship without a smart elevator
