A "so-so" cruise

Sail Date: March 19, 2006

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Room Type: Inside

The ship's decor was inappropriate for children. We decided to bring our children with us this time and were pretty surprised to see the ship decorated in Italian Renaissance decor. That meant a lot of nudity all over the walls and even in the elevators. Very bad choice for a "Fun Ship".

Pros: The food. It was wonderful! Very tasty. Not as much variety, but what was served, was excellent.

Cons: Decor of ship and not enought to do onboard. Very disappointed in activities.

Entertainment was awful and there were not enought activities planned. They really "pushed" the tours and we could see why...because you were bored silly onboard.
Ship Quality
We had no problem with the size or layout of ship. Just the decor. The ship was extremely well maintained. Very clean!
Children's Programs
Very disappointed in the "Camp Carnival" activities. The entire reason we sailed carnival was because it's supposed to be the way to go when you cruise with children. I disagree totally. There wasn't anything better onboard, or planned, than any other cruise line we've traveled on.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Food was excellent. Not a lot of variety, but what was served was very tasty. Midnight buffet was terrible though. It didn't compare by any means, to any of the other midnight buffets we've attended.
Cabin / Stateroom
Staterooms were a nice size and very comfortable.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Shopping is good here.
Mazatlan, Mexico
Waste of time.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Snorkeling was nice.
