This was our third cruise, the first with Carnival. While the ship was clean and "pretty", there were several areas lacking. Now, mind you, if you have never taken a cruise, or never been on another cruise line, you would probably enjoy this boat. Comparing it to other liners, well, there is no comparison. The food.... the breakfast was the worst, the lunch, if we ate at the grill, was the best, the dinners....a few were good, a few were bad. So, overall, I would say the food was fair. The shows....there was 1 we enjoyed and that was the juggler/comedy show. Other than that, they were very mediocre. We actually left 2 in the middle. There was only 1 pool on the boat, so it was VERY full all the time. Lastly, the staff. They were not friendly or very helpful. Our cabin steward did a good job keeping the room clean, just not real friendly. Our dinner waiter was the nicest. When we first got on board, we were looking for the kids room for the teens. We asked 5-6 different people and no one could help us. They all said they didn't know. Most had a tough time speaking english. I love cruising, but for the money, I will never do another Carnaval again. It was very dissapointing.
