I had a great time on this cruise. If the weather had been warmer it would have been perfect.
I did Faster to the Fun and I have to say that not having to wait to get on board was wonderful.
I did the 8:15 seating for dinner and even though it was a little late it was great not being rushed to finish so conversation at the table was interesting, and fun and relaxed.
I had an oceanview room and it was very nice to wake up to the sunshine. I would love a balcony but the balconies on this ship seemed very tiny.
The staff was very accomadting and very friendly. They went out of their way to help.
My one complaint would be that there was not a great deal of variety of things to do. Only one pool. The promenade was not very impressive either. The food was acceptable but not great. Did like the deli and the pizza station though.They also had Mongolian barbeque which was pretty good but the lines every day were soooooooooooo long.
Seaday Brunch was pretty good too.
All in all I had a great time, met lots of nice people.
I would absolutely cruise with Carnival again but I would try for a newer ship with more to do.
