Beautiful experience but for the excursions. We reviewed many options from shore excursions group that was recommended by United but eventually Carnival convinced us they had the better options and with a lowest price guaranty we went with them. They ended up canceling our group on the first full excursion day without even notifying us\, which killed the one full day that we were so looking forward to. And worse\, when we confronted them\, the excursion desk lied to our faces\, claiming to have called our room and spoke to us.
I would definitely take this cruise again but never again will I consider taking excursions from Carnival.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was great and the longest wait was 20 minutes because my wife asked for a window table. Most days\, waiting was less than 3 minutes.

Entertainment was very nice. Every evening full of activities for both family and adult oriented.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff\, other than excursion desk\, were simply amazing. Always with a smile\, always went out of their way to make us comfortable\, happy and excited to be there. Pictures staff are very nice but I will not take pictures from them again. When you look at the beautiful pictures they took of you\, you are very tempted to take them all but their are extremely expensive. After we paid over $80 for 5 pictures\, I asked for a digital copy of them as well. They asked for another $9.95 for EACH digital copy. That is simply highway robbery!

Pros: Wonderful staff especially dining room staff

Cons: Too much time at sea and do NOT take excursions from Carnival
