This ship is a waist of money. I will only talk about the food side, but this should give you a little taste of what to expect. Much more to talk about but i wont bore you. Dining was ridiculous. Your options - 1) room-service - not much for a menu, may or may not show up, and dont expect it on-time in the morning EVER !! 2) buffet - bring a magazine for the wait and some extra seasonings for the extremely bland food 3) the dining room - bring more than a magazine for the line for this - totally ridiculous waiting in a line with 200 people all complaining that they haven't started seating you yet and then dont expect much for taste again 4) davids steakhouse - pay an extra 30$ PER PERSON to have 3 different unexperienced waiters try to impress you with extremely small portions in a loud environment because it is located basically in the atrium so you can hear all the kids running around and loud drunk shipmates.

This is a small portion of what a waist of money this ship was, however, if you can get a room for 20$ a night, i would say sure ! anything above that, i would say "go with another cruise line"

looks like it has been the same with no renovations to make it more "up-to-date" didnt see anything special, **** I do need to say that there is tons of nudity in the ships decorations and art work, so be prepared to explain to your kids about certain body parts. Not sure why carnival, being a "kids friendly" ship, would think it is appropriate?

sheets smelled bad and looked unclean, had to strip my bed and get new ones 2nd day in. Bathroom smelled little worse than other cruises, and the darn venting fan is load and wont shut off.

Pros: The balcony

Cons: Everything else

Recommends Carnival Pride? No.
