Room Type: Inside

We usually cruise with royal Caribbean and it's been over a decade since I last cruised with carnival. I recall better food choices and quality than we experienced this time. Still there was plenty to eat and drink. The salad bar was very nice.  


Our shower overflowed and there was a one to two inches of standing water.  We moped it up, and the steward said yes that can happen when clogged. Also we had trouble with feeling cold. We turned the vent off from blowing, but still our room was very cold. 


Good things:   The mattresses very comfortable, ,

Our waitstaff at the dinning table was very very good. Our waiter Marco called each if us by name and remembered what each person liked. Example brought balsamic vinager to the table because we requested it.. it showed up each meal. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Good size except for the shower overflow and unable to warm up the room. Beds great!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
it was a little too long to wait to get off in catalina
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Entertainment The comedian on board laughed at his own jokes with a wheezing laugh. Most did not join in with laughter. Then he was excited to announce he was going to do another show but it was raunchy, lewd. Who likes that? Profanity is not entertainment. You can her that in a high school / college locker room. But that's not talent.
The singer and dancers had a nice Mo Town theme. But dang off key 😱
Service and Staff
Yes! Marco and his helpers truly knocked themselves out on our behalf
Food and Dining


It's true you don't need to race off ship. But you do need to get OUT. Of your stateroom by 8:30. Which means if you want to eat I. The dining room you must get up early and get back by 8:30 to collect your personal belongings !
