Good for what it was.

We enjoyed our first cruise with Carnival. For this particular boat and destination, we got what we paid for. A majority of our experience, though satisfactory, was mediocre. The evening dining was the highlight of the trip, but the rest of the food was as basic as it could be. We had really hoped for more 21+ sections and activities besides two hot tubs and terrible stand-up. The activities were average, but fun, service was good and friendly (except in the AM dining room where breakfast was a 2 hour endeavor), but overall, it was a warm experience. Would recommend for a first-timer.

Cabin / Stateroom
We were impressed by how well the room was attended to. But we did get yelled at by the woman on the other end of the room service line for not knowing what was available. Apparently here was supposed to be a red menu in our room that we had to request on our third day.

Don't skip the big planned activities. The entertainment staff were very fun and involved. The Hasbro game show, thought obviously geared for kids and families, was the one of the highlights of our trip. Same with the deck party.
