first cruise, not good .

Sail Date: June 14, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

first cruise and very likely last on Carnival. comedy shows, dance and singing programs excellent, rest pretty much downhill from there. ship was extremely crowded, buffet selections were very routine, little variations for breakfast selections and lunch, also had to pretty well stand in line for everything, wait to get your food, wait for beverage bars, wait for tables, etc..... what you had to choose from Monday was pretty well what you had to choose from the rest of the week. burger  and hot dog bar was pretty good but then again stand in line for that too, pizza bar open all the time but pizza was about like the cheapest frozen pizza you get at walmart. sit down restaurants pretty good but then again selections not up to par. Debarkation process at Montego Bay was horrendous. based on this experience, will not cruise on Carnival again especially in June.

Galveston, Texas
just boarded ship and got off when arrived back in port.
Cozumel, Mexico
cozumel is nice.
George Town, Grand Cayman
grand cayman is highly recommended.
Montego Bay, Jamaica
deboarding process process was horrendous here, very congested, would not care to return


no real issues with ship itself, bad experience was not fault of the ship or staff.
