Overall Spring Break cruise was good. The food was ample and average quality. The waitstaff were very attentive and the steward excellent. Staterooms were clean, maintained, and as good as expected. The embarkation and debarkation were smooth. The childrens programs were good for Ages 15 and above, but sadly very disappointing for Ages 12-14. This signficantly reduced the overall experience for children and parents alike. See commments below. Because this was during "Spring Break", expect many drunk college age kids, including profanity and no room in ANY of the hot tubs during the entire cruise. This is not a fault of Carnival, simply the timing of the cruise.
The shore experiences were nice - Catalina Island as well as Mexico. Overall, good memories and enjoyable.
