Review SummaryThis cruise is geared toward people who enjoy having fun with a crowd. The shows were extremely enjoyable. There is certainly no lack of talent on the ship.
As far as the staff goes you would be hard pressed to find anyone unfriendly or unwilling to go beyond the expected.
There is very little on the cruise about the port of call. In our case, Bermuda. There is plenty of information about shopping but there is scant information about the island.
The food was a bit of hit and miss. Like the girl with the strawberry curl when it was good, it was very very good, when it was bad, it was horrid. Fortunately most of the time the food was good. However I would have to say very very good was reserved for food about 60% of the time. The Normandie dining room should have been spot on most of the time. It wasn't and that was a disappointment.
The decor is horrible. The Carnival line would do itself a favor by removing all the garish plastic decor. They would lighten the ship and improve the ambiance. We were amazed that the approval for this design must have passed many people before final approval. Were they all asleep? The decor is so cheesy it should be an embarrassment. Our advice is get rid of the plastic paint over the very poorly represented masters on the walls and the ship will be improved 110%.
The cruise was enjoyable however, we were not able to take part in the casino because they allowed smoking. That was also the case in the piano lounge. For us they were the main places we would have liked to have spent our time. So that was a huge disappointment for us.
