Review summary

I booked this cruise for my husbands 60th birthday.  Despite my request , there was no singing or mention of his birthday at his special dinner.  I was also told by my booking agent that this boat had laser tag.  Turns out, this bait does not have laser tag.  I had two very disappointed kids.  The dining room staff was terse and slow.  My past carnival experience was lovely but this was a sad comparison.
