We were disappointed in our first (and probably our last) Carnival cruise.
*We feel that there were a lot of hidden costs.
*Most of the crew was not friendly..... almost appearing "unhappy" with their jobs.
*The pool was closed 3 evenings of a 5 day cruise.
*Photo quality was poor and there were no photo packages offered.
and these are only a few of our issues with Carnival.

Ship Tip

Eat early BEFORE they close the buffet while you're in line. Don't plan on using the pool.

When allowed 7 hours, you shouldn't spend 1hour before anything is open nor should you spend 45 minutes in a line to get back on the ship.
