My first Carnival cruise, usually go with RC. I was dissapointed in the the lack of staff (seemed understaffed) and the staff were not very helpful or friendly. On RC, they always go out of your way. Carnival staff were snippy and rude, and provided little help to my disabled veteran husband (like not helping him at the buffet when they saw him struggle with a cup of coffee). On RC, they were right there. Long lines to get drinks and snacks, etc, did not seem like they wanted to help. Maybe they are overworked.
Food was OK. Guys burger joint and pizza were a hit. Buffet was average, formal dinners nice in dining room. Cabin assistants were awesome - best employees on the ship.

The beaches are awesome, enjoy! Go to the dining room to eat. Expect a wait if you do open dining - get there 30 minutes early and put your name in
