This was our third cruise, first on Carnival. We were warned that Carnival was a step down from Royal, so we were a little concerned. What a pleasant surprise....from embarkation (smooth as silk, no lines, bags deliverd to room within an hour) to the quality of the lounges and casino, to the overall quality of the food offerings to the exceptional attitude of the staff, this was the best cruising experience we have had.
Exceeded all expectations
We were warned about the abundance of children (wrong!), the poor food (wrong again), and the gaudiness of the decor (wrong, wrong wrong)....we had a blast!
Pros: staff, quality of service, ports of call, room size, quality of food
