The ship was good. Carnival Cruise Lines made poor management decisions in allowing the cruise to proceed. It was very rough going. My wife had never been on a cruise before and I doubt we will try again.

Food and Dining

Food was OK but more variety would have been good. Our head waiter was very good.
