This was our first trip on Carnival.  And, sadly, our last.  The ship was old with a bit tacky decor.  The service was second rate and the food was blah.  They didn't even have many hand sanitizer dispensers and no staff member to insist on it before entrance to the buffet or dining room.  Sad

We enjoyed our excursion in Nassau and our company at dinners.l

Ship Quality
Very worn and decor was tacky. More 80's than classy resort.
Food and Dining
Just okay. Buffet did not have many choices and it was open only sporadically.
Cabin / Stateroom
It was fine. "Not bad".
Service and Staff
Not well trained. In the buffet, staff members would ignore you or even cut in front of passengers. Floor was always wet and greasy.
No opportunities to see the show, based on meal times. We enjoyed the piano player, even though he seemed unhappy to be there. They had a really great rock group playing in the area near the photo booths.
Destinations and Excursions
We really enjoyed the "submarine" excursion in Nassau. Great crew members who were charming and helpful.


Honestly not a lot of fun. The music by the pool was so loud it was difficult to speak to the person next to you.
