As I said above, I personally don't think you can have a bad cruise. We were a group of 21 people, who ranged in age from 14 to as old as 74. The median age was in the mid 30's as we had 11 people in the range of 20 -26 yrs of age. I think the average age on the ship had to be in the upper 50's to mid 60's. Very different from the 5 other Carnival cruises I've been on.
The ship itself was a good ship, and would go on it again with a different time frame and itinerary. We had cabins at the rear of the ship on the Verandah deck, which made navigation very easy.
I was not very impressed with the show productions. I felt the shows lacked pizazz, and the foursome of singers left a lot to be desired.
I felt the selection of foods in the main dining room was very good, but the quality of the foods was not good. Many nights I received food that was over cooked, primarily the chicken. I had a perch that I thought was excellent, and of course the lobster tail/s were very good. I thought our servers did as good as they could do with a group of our size. The negative was that we were always one of the last tables left at the end of dinner, and we received a lecture from the main server when one person in our group was overheard commenting on the fact. I do not envy their position.

Pros: Simply being on a cruise is pleasurable enough for me
Cons: Ship was not as lively as all the other Carnival cruises I've been on
