Worse Cruise

Sail Date: October 20, 2014

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

On boarding the ship people acted like cattle in a cattle drive.. The rules say you can bring 12-20 oz non alcoholic beverages on board no water.  People where carrying 24 ounce water packages with 36 bottles in a package, discussing how they had put the bottle of alcohol in there shoes so the baggage detectors can't detect it. The hand rails on the ship where dirty and the glass had hand prints all over it. No wonder everyone get sick on CARNIVAL Cruise. Most of the passengers where young with kids and just drank to get drunk. The one night at dinner a child went around licking the backs of the seats in the dining room while mom and dad laughed and thought it was funny. Then proceeded to have a wrestling match at the table. The staff did nothing to stop this behavior. As far as dress code no on followed most of the time the skirts where cut to high and stomachs were exposed most of the time. This is fine for the swimming pool area but in the food court and the dining room. It was to much. The dining guide lines stated to dress fancy (not sparkly dress but nice no jean) there was a man wearing basketball shorts and a sweat jacket at the table next to us.

We got what we paid for we thought we got a good deal because we booked late not because the class of passengers.

The crew was also not very friendly.
