Food and Dining
Food most of the times was excellent. Had two cabins and a family of 5 and put us at two separate tables. Took awhile to straighten that out but after that everything was smooth. Should offer sushi a few addtional times throughout the day. Always right before dinner when everyone is rushing.
Comedy club was excellent. First two comedies were great. Great option. Need more music on lido deck thru out the day. Guitar player on lido deck excellent but also need more caribbean music on lido deck. Usually have but not this cruise much. Love the deck parties. First time so a 50"s party on the deck which was a big hit. Like to see 1 more deck party on a 7 day cruise. Everyone likes to dance. Maybe the last night as well. People love to do the funny dance routines the staff comes up with. Like to see them improve the main show after dinner. Been on 7 Carnival Cruise same stuff. Hypotist was excellent. Those kind of shows get people involved. Loved it.
Children's Programs
Main reason select Carnival Cruise lines over other cruise ships because kids love program. Have a 8 and 12 year old. Love it. Only suggestion should have 1-2 hours a day with free arcade games per day for the kids during low times. Great program other wise and staff is great.
Ship Quality
Ship very clean and condition in great shape.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was very clean. Housekeeping does a wonderful job. Very friendly. Wish my two rooms were next to each other like I requested.
Service and Staff
Friendly staff but some training opportunities on how staff presents to guest. Tone of voice etc... but overall good.
