Maybe Carnival isn't that bad...maybe. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. However, this ship and everything about this cruise is absolutely awful. Food...cold, mediocre at best. Entertainment...i've seen better in a high school auditorium. Service...subpar. Accommodations...Think Super 8. Pool...liken it to the above ground pools you see in a trailer park. "Hot" tub...well, not hot. Bars....overpriced, under poured. Ports of Call...Grand Cayman was alright. Cozumel...well it is Mexico. Adult Area...not like the pictures. This is a small, outdated ship. You feel every wave in the ocean. Also, if you'd like to watch tv in your room before bed or in the morning, you better like watching the cruise ship channels or cnn...if you even get the cnn channel and you better wear glasses cause the tv is about 13". Save your money and do anything else. I would have rather stayed at a decent hotel in tampa for 5 days.
