First and last time With carnival

Sail Date: December 01, 2011

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

There are too many negatives to write in such a small space; terrible shows, lines all the time, room service time over an hour with extremely slim choices, cold hot tubs , age restrictions never enforced on adult only areas, show admittance, babies in hot tub, preg teen in hot tub, our deck always smelled like raw sewage , spa aggressively pushed the buying purchase of items, casino drinks on us card a joke! Tried to get a diet coke multiple times and was told no cant get one but the push of alcohol was heavy- for 2 days playing at the casino after earning the card - still got refused a diet coke! Supervisor did nothing . Elegant dining??? What a joke- nothing special, no special amenities provided, people where not again held to regulations ie; in jeans, hats, flip flops etccc
Just a tip of our experience! Never again will I waste my money on this cruise line! First time in 5 yrs to take a trip without out kids to actually enjoy and carnival failed miserably!!! Beyond disappointed

Pros: Stanley at the comedy show

Cons: Shows horrible, lines for everything , programs not upheld
