Staff was awesome. Party ship.

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were treated so well by the staff that we hate to put any negative vibes, but the riff-raff that was sailing on this cruise was horrible. If they weren't from the hood, they were getting into fights in the club, or they were calling staff names because they weren't fast enough at getting their pizza. We realize this ship emphasizes "drink, drink, drink", and that makes people stupid. But wish there would have been some notes saying it was a party ship, and not an "act like an adult" ship. And then to find out that people from Miami can take this cruise for little or nothing, but get the same amenities that the rest of us get.  Jumping overboard came to my mind the first day with the training while the "women" if you want to call them that were yelling at Eduardo who was just trying to do his job to show us the lifeboat stuff.

will not sail with Carnival again....probably not even another cruise...Sorry crew - you were great, but can't help being around the "drink all you can for $50" people.

Cabin / Stateroom
Our staff kept it wonderfully clean. Only issue was the bathroom always smelled like mildew.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
We didn't take a ship excursion, used a local taxi guide instead for $80 total and went all over for 3 hours, and then our own FREE beach.
Onboard Activities
Trivia gal was fun - for trivia!
Performers were good. Cruise director kept everyone "happy"
Service and Staff
Any time we saw staff, they always were happy with a smile. Never had a rude experience from staff.
Food and Dining
Mr T and his crew were AWESOME!!! They always called us by name and even remembered our drinks from the prior evenings and had them ready as soon as we sat down. Treated us like royalty:)
