We have cruised many times on Carnival and we were disappointed with cruise,  Particularly in the large number of people on the ship.  There were many groups, with cabins booked to capacity with 4 to a room.  The condition of the ship was poor.  It was not real clean and needs a major paint job!.  The food was not as good as other Carnival ships we have been on.  The buffet ran out of food several times due to the large number of passengers.  However, the ports were fun and port excursions were plentiful.  Evening entertainment was limited, with Bingo more than three times in the theater.  Trivia was great!

Nice accomodations, but, needed a serious update. Carpet was worn and stained.

Ship Tip

This ship has many cabins for double occupancy. Familes and church groups like this ship and it is booked at max capacity. .If you rely on the buffet, get there early. Keep your own supply of hand sanitizer at hand. Ship hand sanitizers and soap dispensers were usually empty.
