Better then expected

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Inside

We booked a 5 night cruise with Carnival to take our 12 year old on her first cruise. She had a ball. We had sailed on Carnival about 20 years ago and we have graduated to other cruise lines as we have become a little older. We were pleasently surprised with this cruise. We chose carnival for its price and value and we thought it would be more fun for the 12 year old. She had a blast with her Circle C group. The food was better then other cruise lines, not as fancy but better tasting. The entertainment was not as good as other cruiselines we have been on recently. T

Pros: Food and activities for 12 year old

Cons: entertainment and some slow service

Nice and clean well laid out, good water park.
