We loved all three ports we visited on this cruise.  But the weather at sea was very rough.  High winds meant the adult area on the ship - Serenity Deck - was closed two of the three days we were sea. We had to use the hot tubs on Deck 10 and the two on deck 5 which were overrun with children and pre-teens doing cannon-balls into the hot tubs and splashing around like they were in a swimming pool. Their parent were nowhere around.   That was the most unenjoyable thing about this cruise. We were disappointed that Carnival didn't do a better job making sure the kids on the board were reined in by their parents.

Too loud in this cabin --- It was spacious but very loud every morning that we had to dock the boat. We will never stay at the back of the ship again.
