This is my third cruise with carnival and I have to say this one was lacking. This is a bigger boat we thought we would like it better but bigger isn't always better. My favorite part of the cruise wand the coordinator Dr. E. He made things fun. But that's it. The staff seemed to be new and not ready for the long work hours. Our first night at the dining hall the waiter had no energy, our cocktail waitress was rude enough that my brother asked them if they were ok. The shows were ok. Our housekeeping staff was nice can't complain. They did their job and was very friendly he even remembered our names. We enjoy the ports we stopped at and the kids enjoyed the pool. Hard for me to get in cause it was always crowded during the day. Also liked the  obstacle course. All in all we had a good time and would try another ship

for future cruises. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Loved my cabin can't complain.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Ship was kept clean but design on the lido deck felt cramped.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Didn't like that the teens were able to go off on their own all the time. My 12 year old loved that.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Food was good, staff not so much. When we went to breakfast or lunch at lot of times no cups for drinks. A few times no plates readily available
