Reviewed: 3 years ago

Have taken 12 cruises, this was the first Carnival.  On the plus side; room had plenty of storage, the ship was clean, and the decor was fun.  Embarkation and debarkation went quickly.  The food was adequate but not great.  Given that it was so much less expensive than our other cruises this was all okay.  Our choice was based on the itinerary to enjoy as much snorkeling as possible.  The ports were great for this.  On the downside; our room on the 8th floor in the back of the ship was really noisy with chairs moving on the floor above us.  The noise started at roughly 7:00 am and continued until at least midnight.  However, the worst part was that the spring breakers overtook the adult pool area from late afternoon on.  No enjoyment or consideration for anyone else on the ship.  Heard them outside our stateroom most night basically talking outside our door as late as 4:00 am.  Really not fun.

As mentioned earlier the cabin itself was fine but no end to the chair noise from above or the partiers outside our door.
