The ship was huge and very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Main dining room food was great with many choices and as many servings as you would like. If you do not prefer sit down dinner there is the buffet, deli, oriental place, the grille, and the pizzeria to give you a sampling of the choices. From the dancing waiters to the animal towels in our room, the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The entertainment was excellent and since we went a week before Christmas the ship was nicely decorated for the holiday. They even had a holiday show where all the children from camp carnival went on stage and sang songs. I do think there could have been a larger variety of shows and show times. The casino was always booming, karaoke was fun, and the there were plenty of pools and one even had a slide which was a big hit. However, we did a cruise and shopping tour in the Bahamas and were very disappointed. We only had an hour to shop and were told to be back by 11:00 a.m. because if we missed the bus back we would miss the boat. This is the only thing I could understand from the cruise tour guy and he repeated it at least 15 times. We were there by 10:45 a.m. and by 11:45 a.m. the bus driver was still not there to pick us up. We began to panic because there was no one to call to get help. Finally the bus driver arrived. We reported this incident to carnival but they seemed not to care and on the last day we finally received a letter of apology from them (not that it did much good). Also, Grand Cayman was awful. There were 7 cruise ships docked there so it was way too crowded. We thought this would be the best stop but it turned out to be the worst. I was highly impressed with Costa Maya. The shopping was great and we did the dolphin swim which was way worth the cost. There is something for everyone! Overall highly recommended!!!!
