My wife and I decided to take cruise for our 1 year anniversary and wanted it to be a short get way so we went with Carnival.  Three nights was exactly what we were looking for and because the port was in Long Beach (we live in LA), no need to be concerned with cost of airfare etc.  Crusie was fun, lively entertainment and nice stateroom.  Our cabin steward was great.  Only complaint we had was dining room service - it was not nearly as good as I would have expected considering most other staff were very attentive.  One morning for breakfast, we waited at least 10 minutes before even being acknowledge but yet, there were lots of straff just sort of standing around doing nothing.  Same thing for dinner - took 10 minutes before we were offered water and another 10 minutes before warm bread arrived.  I wanted to complain but my wife talked me out of it.  IMHO, it may have been better for us to eat at the buffet...At least we would have been able to serve ourselves...

Ship was in good condition, and it was clean for the most part

There were many options to choose from and food was good for the most part, waiter service was lacking
