This was our 7th cruise, 2nd on Carnival and it was a disappointment.  Our cabin had air conditioning that would not shut off and we were freezing most of the time.  Throughout the ship there was loud music blaring, impossible to find a quiet place to sit and read.  The buffet was often closed and when open, hot food was cold.  We so looked forward to relaxing in the hot tub, however it was never hot.  The ice cream machine seldom worked.  The tours offered were outrageously priced.  The stop in Nassau was so bad, we feared for our lives.  Our own state department had issued a warning about travel to Nassau.  When we arrived there were 5 other cruise ships docked.  Can you imagine the crowds?  The natives followed us around trying to sell their "junk". I do have some positives to mention.  The dining room was superb, both the food and the service was excellent.  Also Freeport was lovely, our stop there was most pleasant and the best part of the cruise.
