Review summary

I will start with the positives, The room attendant (especially Chiao) were awesome. The restaurant wait staff was also exceptional (especially Lino & Co.).


The negatives.  We had a suite but because it was an older ship the view was partially obstructed.  The balconies are the smallest of any cruise I have every been on.  Because of my height I was barely able to sit facing the water because my knees would touch the railing.  We booked the cruise unknowingly during Spring Break.  Many young college kids drinking heavily and raucous.


All and all a nice relaxing experience.

Cabin was ok. Easily identified wear in all areas including the cabinetry, floors and bathrooms. Balcony was extremely small and also was a partially obstructed view. I only sail with a balcony and therefore would never sail this class of Carnival again.
