I consider myself and experienced cruiser with 11 cruises. This was a dirty, smelly ship. The food was awful, like a bad Vegas buffet. Over crowded and drunk, drunk, drunk people. We even had people removed from the ship and they had to bus it home because of physical fighting. There are security guards everywhere so that was kind of a clue that this ship has problems. The crew is not very friendly. The cabin staff was nice and friendly. The wait staff another issue. No smiles and some were actually rude. LIke they couldn't wait to go home. Whatever you pay for a cruise on this ship...it's too much. Now....we did meet a lot of nice people that live in our area that we will probably see back on land....and Ensenada was really nice. Took a tour from town and not from the Carnival offers and it was great and half the price. Would probably go on one of Carnivals other ships, but never this one again. Wait till you smell the casino....yuk! I guess if you've never been on a cruise this might seem okay, but believe me...it's not....there is so much better out there.
