Room Type: Oceanview

Took my son on a birthday cruise (he turned 27).  I have been on a number of Carnival cruises before.  This one was consistent.  Budget cruise met expectations.  Quick and easy boarding.  Food was good for 2 days, and really bad on last day.  Servers were very good, except a little slow with drink service.  Entertainment was decent.  Room was good.  Room service was excellent.  Got the drink package: well worth it.  Bartenders were all great with the exception of one. Major complaint was too much smoking: even in areas where smoking was not allowed, numerous e-cigs were being smoked and staff did nothing about it.  I knew what to expect, and it met expectations.

Cabin / Stateroom
Great location. Near elevator, but far enough away to avoid too much noise.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Took less than 3 minutes to embark from time arrived at terminal until got into room. Took less than 30 minutes from time called to disembark until picked up car at park and cruise.
