This ship is in major need of an overhaul. I understand one is planned for next year but until this is complete, I can't recommend it. This is my 5th cruise and 1st on Carnival. The staff was nice and friendly but are working with such outdated equipment they can only do so much. Public restrooms were not well maintained and the elevators were slow and not reliable. Food was OK at best, desserts were better.
