We had a mini family reunion on this cruise (this was the only reason why I gave the second star, because i got to see my family member).  I feel like I paid way too much for what l got!  The food was terrible, no excitement/entertainment  on the boat that caught our eyes, and the kids club all sooooo sucked! We was on the boat cruise for 7 days and my 6 year old daughter went to the kids club (club ocean) about 2 times for about 1 hour or less each time she went there.  I would not travel carnival cruise line again, especially when traveling with my daughter!  I have to say the the workers were very nice (well most of them). But I truly believe that I got ripped off by paying so much money for that trip.  We was at sea on Christmas and no excitement, nothing at all to draw the crowd.  O yeah they had a ugly sweater contest  whoopie doooo....... never me nor my family on carnival  this was a Crying terrible and very expensive trip that was not at all worth it!  Food was nasty terrible yuck!  O and my cabin was dirty when we first came on board, dirty QTips , used tissue. Chairs was dirty. The balcony and chairs out there had bird poop on it. Not clean at all.

Room was dirty when we first came onboard, balcony was dirty with bird poop even on the chairs. The description I was given was totally different than the cabin that I stayed in. I feel i paid way too much money for what I got. I have to say this trip was a total loss. I cant believe i paid so much for that experience. Im truly ot satisfied

Ship Tip

You need a better kids club program, my daughter didnt even get a lot of play time. This cruise was not for us. My room was dirty. I paid too much for what i got. Carnival need better entertainment / activities especially on Christmas when we are at sea i mean we did not 1 thing. The employees
