We have been on multiple cruises with 4 different cruise lines. This was our second Carnival Cruise. We thought the ship was great. Our dining room waiters and stateroom staff took very good care of us. The food in the main dining room was excellent with good selections. The food at the buffet was fine. The pizza was great. We loved our excursions (dolphin swim and Dunn River Falls in Jamaica, Underground river in Cozumel. ) We felt a little shorted on the evening entertainment when at least two of the nights they only had an early main show and one night didn't have anything in the main theater. We had early dining, so could barely make the early show if there wasn't a later one.
We hit a glitch with fog both the day we left and day we returned. Port Galveston was closed for hours due to fog. We completely missed our flight home and had a pretty high expense changing flights. Had we known this in advance, we would have made later flights or picked up the delay insurance.

Pros: Our dining room staff and room steward were excellent.

Cons: The nightly shows were not scheuled well
