This cruise was enjoyable.
The Pros:
Great check-in: fast friendly and easy
Very clean ship
The cabin was a good size and comfortable
Security was evident in all areas
Food was improved over previous Carnival cruises
Plenty of food choices including Indian, American cuisine, a rotisserie, brunch, pizza, custom wok lunches/dinners
Maitre D' was helpful in getting a table change so my group could sit together
Pools and spas were plentiful
Although there were a lot of people on board, there were only a few times when it felt crowded
Staff are as always, polite, helpful and smiling
The stops were excellent
The Cons:
I really miss the steel drum bands and calypso music
All of the Lido deck big screen movies and some of the Lido deck DJ music was way WAY too loud
There was a lot of down time when not much was going on, more activities would have been welcomed
The cabin stewards seem to have more to do/more rooms to care for, although my room was always made up and clean, I rarely saw the cabin steward, which is different from previous cruises
The stops were great, but a little short of time on land
The biggest Con: Babies and young children in diapers were allowed in the spas and pools, no one ever asked the parents to remove the children from the water

The Lido deck main food lines are set up to start from the ends and meet in the middle, so the lines are mirror images of each other
