sad experience

Sail Date: May 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Public smoking was horrible. Balcony unusable. Food just fair.
Loud music was EVERYWHERE, even on the Serenity "Adults Only" deck. We asked several times for the music to be turned down so that we could relax and read. We finally went to the room. Do they know what Serenity means?
Hot tubs were crowded and could not use much. We always had trouble finding a lounge chair.
I've been on 6 cruises with 4 different lines. Carnival is a "Budget Cruise Line"

Pros: Clean room

Cons: Too much smoking. No shade. No quiet area to relax

Recommends Carnival Pride? No.

Ship Quality
Ship was clean. Lines were long for buffets. Too much smoking. Crew polite.
Food and Dining
Nothing like we expected on a cruise. I have been on for 4 cruise lines and the good on this one was at the bottom of the list. Nothing special.
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was spotless and steward was great. Problem was the smoke. We could not use our balcony because of other people smoking. Smoking cabins should be on one side or at the aft end of the ship. The balcony had dirty tinted glass instead of a railing. We had to staned to see. They should replace it with a railing like I've had on other ships. Wetried to sleep with the door open one night but were awakend at 6 am by the smell of smoke and then out cabin smelled
Beginning of cruise had two good comedians and that was it for the week. The ships entertainers were ok. We just saw them once.
