Like all cruise lines Carnival is cutting back. Every cruise something else is missing in their services. In our daily paper we got warnings about Zika and they told us to wear long sleeved shirts and pants, also use insecticide with DEET. It would have been helpful to know this before we left. Also there was a warning in Honduras about criminal activity. The ship was very gaudy and needed work on it cosmetically. We enjoyed the brunch on sea days and the main dining room was good. We tried the Cucina de Capitano for lunch and weren't impressed. We went to relax and was able to do that even though my wife was very disappointed in the very old movies available in the cabin. Most of the crew were very pleasant with only a couple of exceptions. Also there was many announcements over the PA from earlier in the morning until after 10 at night. We make the best of things and don't let much ruin our vacation. We also never left the boat.

Cabin was very small by Carnival standards. No loveseat or table.
