overall it was a good trip but watch out ....! drinks are too expensive! and some of the kids activities that charge you money that should be included with the cruise.! not 5 bucks for 5 minutes on the lazer tag activity thats ridiculous! and the cruise company charges way too much for our pictures that get taken throughout the cruise it doesnt cost that much to process pic,s! the food in the dining room at night time should be bigger size portions, i asked the waiter if someone ate half of my steak, cuz i only got a little piece .....everything came in minimum amounts.! come on carnival! the safety training hour that puts you through torture was no fun.! make more and better kids activities, more basketball hoops and courts, and please ....for the love of god, heat the pools,yes i said heat the pools,jacuzzi,s were great, but pools was freezing and unbearable.!!! mini golf was great. ping pong was fun,we wanted to go to the very front of boat ,but was rejected,!!!! apperantly only cruise crew and staff can go there, bummed us out, sushi needs to expand to more bars or bigger bar!!! and bigger variety of sushi,soda card was too high priced, but we was glad they had it,conveniant. my total bill at the end was too high and stuff was too expensive, watch out if you are on a budget, or like to drink alot.! dont do pictures if you have no intent on buying them,the boat deck plan needs better planning, we got lost quite a bit or had to take weird routes jus to get to certain areas. annoying!

Pros: sights,food,dress up formal

Cons: cost of drinks,cost of programs and activities
