There serval occassions that a particular item on the schedule would not take place. The staff never made an announcement that the activity was to be cancelled.
The wooden floor of the Lido deck stayed totally discusting. I heard serveal mothers over the course of the cruise, tell their children not to walk around barefoot. The public restrooms were never cleaned. SO GROSSSS!!!!!!
Disembarkation was a mess. Passengers were informed as what would need to be done in regards to luggage, customs forms, etc. in order to get off the ship. Once in the area where we were to find our luggage, the circus began. There must have been 10 or so employees telling you to get in this line, the another saying, no , get in this line. It was chaos!! We, the passengers had no idea what to. We surely didn't feel we should be yelled at. I saw several elderly people being shoved around. They were so confused. The staff was so disrespectful!! Hopefull, this part of disembarkation can be planned in a more orderly fashion.
As I mentioned, I've been on several cruises. I asure you, this will be the last with Carinval.
For the money spent on sodas and on average 3-4 cocktails a day, I would have been better off vacationing at an all inclusive resort.
Cons: Constant odor throughout...very bad
