Carinval out of tampa with 2 days at sea is mostly know as a party boat. For the price we paid it was a great deal. While the lunch food selection was not the best, the dinner was impressive and great! The ship was older but kept clean, the staff was friendly and helpful but compared to other ships and cruise lines were not up to par. What made the cruise a slight turn off were the fellow passengers that were a bit more rough and tumble and not as well behaved and mostly drunk. But hey for the price and knowing that carnival is know as the party boat it was a great time. Glad I could take a vacation but next time Ill go on a different cruise line and pay the extra for a better quality of food and people.

A little dated but good room, clean and big enough for a couple

Ship Tip

If you plan on drinking more than 4 drinks a day, but the drink package you will save in the long run.
