Nice/clean ship; formal dining room friendly; buffet service staff rude and slow, tables were often dirty. Only pizza (every single night) after buffets were closed, would have been nice to have the grill open late night. Nothing for familes to do together. Great ship if single, married without kids, young groups, etc....The one activity we did go to with our kids, nobody showed up to conduct the program. This was my 4th cruise (3 with carnival) and I always saw the cruise director out and about actually participating with the cruisers. The only time we saw this director was on stage introducing people or when my 12 yr old saw him before cocktail hour, tickling his female staff member.
