Review summary

I selected this cruise as I was taking my children/grandchildren and thought it would offer the most activities for the varying age groups. Carnival has been a "fun" cruise in the past. The entertainment was the worst we've experienced. There wasn't much to do on the ship that was interesting. Unable to use main pool while spending two days at sea. Will likely not select Carnival for a future cruise.

Food and Dining

Main dining room was good, buffet was average tasting and not many options.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Unable to use pool two days because someone defecated in pool, children's programs for under 5 did not have many activities, not too many activities while at sea during the day.

Entertainment was repetative, singing and dancing 70s and 80s. Dr. Seuss for children is outdated. Every activity around lobby and pool was so loud it couldn't be enjoyed. Amateur magic show. Comedians were not funny.
