Review Summary

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.

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.
