Being our first cruise we didn't know quite what to expect. However my family and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect. The variety of food was unbelievable, a lot of activities on board and plenty of room to relax. The service was out of this world. From those who served us dinner to the steward to made our beds, they make you feel like royalty. Our room could've been a bit more spacious but we'll know better next time when booking. We were on the 1st floor which is below the deck. But it was still good. You should however familiarize yourself with all the charges especially the "mandatory" tipping of $12 per day per person which adds up to quite a bit. All in all, we had a wonderful time and definitely would be using carnival cruise lines again very soon.
