All the Carnival cruise ships look the same. The food was not great\, way overcooked. Too many activities geared toward art auctions\, jewelry\, gambling; Liked the towel folding and ice carving (except it was the same carving on this cruise and the cruise I took 4 years ago); Long lines at every eating place - felt like a cattle drive; Water slides and the ropes course were awesome - best thing on the ship!!!

Food and Dining

Most of the food was overcooked. Reminded me of standard buffet food. Even the main dining room food wasn't very good. And it took way too long to get the food to the table.

Punchliner Comedy was horrible. Saw two different comedians - Not at all funny. Need a lot more variety shows with dancing and singing.

If you don't like new things\, all the Carnival boats are about the same layout.
