It was a very nice and clean ship. The entertainment was lively and fun. The food was more of a " fast food" theme, and the same food daily. I wasn't too impressed with all the " hidden" charges at the end of the cruise, cleaning fees, taxes on complimentary drinks.etc. The staff was very friendly. I would definitely try a different cruise line just to see how they compare to Carnival.
