Always get a balcony--it is so relaxing to set out on the deck in private and enjoy the view!

Don't miss a night at Nick and Nora's steakhouse! If you're a couple that doesn't want to be around kids, this is not your ship. Parents with kids of all ages, enjoy! The kids will love it!

Go to the Serenity Deck for great views and a quiet and comfortable retreat on the days at sea when you simply want to rest.

There is only one outlet in the cabin so if you have multiple devices to plug in, we would recommend that you bring an outlet strip.

It was very noisy with children running up and down the halls. It was Christmas week , don't know if this is a problem all the time on Carnival cruises, probably won't take them again.

Deck 3 has a nice, relatively protected walking loop, but you need to cut through inside at the front of the ship. Also, check out Gatsby's Garden which is a semi-secret stroll on Deck 3 around the Phantom Lounge. Sit several rows behind the audio board in the lounge; great view and not too loud.

Make sure to either put out the order form for Morning food service or call the night before to set up a time for your coffee and the select items to start your day. Also do not bother to take on anything in " Bottles " as Carnival has a new policy of " NO BOTTLES OF ANY KIND" but wine or champagne

Arrive on the last hour of boarding. All the crowds have disappeared by then. Seems everyone is excited but if you can temper your enthusiasm you will have no hassles boarding.

Go early to the gym if you work out. Fitness area opens at 6:00 a.m. and it's not that big.

If you are seeking peace and quiet, do NOT go to the (misnamed) Adult Serenity deck. There are definitely no "under 21's" there but there is a crowd of 20-30 somethings that gather to party around the pool area. It's loud and rowdy....no peace and quiet to be found despite the wonderful seating!

The back of the boat where our room was is noisy. If you are a sensitive sleeper don't get a room at the back of the boat. I personally liked the noise it helped me sleep.

Remember when you get a balcony, you can't pick your neighbors. Disrespectful neighbors can significantly impact your balcony-room experience. Inside room is cheaper and if you're a sun-lover it is the best value since you'll be on deck most of the time.
