I wasn't sure what to expect never having been on a Carnival ship before and especially after walking onboard to an explosion of purple. You could smell the smoke from the casino down every stairwell and hallway. It was especially bad on sea days.
All stateroom, dining, and shipboard attendants were very pleasant. The ship was very clean. Shows were good. The buffet food was edible but just barely so. Breakfast was good each day though. The meals in the dining room were by far much better and I have no complaints there at all.
There were a lot of kids on this cruise as it was a holiday week and it seems most parents didn't banish them to the kid's pools, so there was not much relaxing to be done by the pool. Also, smoking areas should be designated to certain parts of the ships. Nothing worse than lazing by the pool and then inhaling someone's cigarette smoke.
Overall, our group had a pleasant cruise.

Bring a power strip. There is only one outlet in the room. Tough when you have more than one lady in a room at a time.
