I will give Carnival credit they have definitely increased the quality of their shows. I have been cruising Carnival for a while and the shows are light years past where they use to be.

Children's Programs

Ship was very clean!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This cabin was great far space. I traveled with my wife and daughter and this room had enough space and then some. Being located down the hall from the family harbor suite was very convenient and definitely something I would love to do again. Now the only draw backs to this room is if you get motion sickness stay far away from this room. This room rocked me to sleep every night but the motion can be a bit much when you aren't sleeping.
