Any Time dining was not a relaxing or convenient experience on this ship. Every other ship we have been on, it was fast and immediately seated. On this ship, there was not sufficient space allocated for anytime dining in comparison to assigned seats.

Deck 6 forward, as far front as you could possibly get is a hidden secret. We were the only 2 there. We saw a lot of flying fish. It was so neat. Take pair of binoculars to use while out on deck or on your balcony. I plan on buying a pair.

Easy to cut through deck 7 rooms to get to either side of the ship. Definitley get a suite, if you can budget for it. Totally worth the money!

The Gold Pearl Restaurant is extremely hard to find-- it's in the back of the ship on Decks 3/4, but you can't get there by walking to the back on Deck 4-- there is a lounge in the way. Go up to Deck 5, walk all the way to the back of the ship, then go down to Deck 4 or 3 to access the Gold Pearl.

Any cruise is a good cruise. The ship is nice and well maintained. Entertainment at night was average. The Comedians made up for that. They were super.

Remember that you're coming on the ship to enjoy the cruise and not what someone review said about the ship. Your trip is what you make it, and not what's someone's said.

Review itinerary of events the night before so as to benefit from all the various activities the ship has to offer and or download the ship's app for daily update. Try to book shore excursions prior to your sail date so as to get the ones you are truly interested in doing.

First time cruisers should have a personal concierge at least for the 1st hour of their arrival. The cruise should have multiple activity engagement people. Carnival should not slave their employees to the point that they cannot even talk to the guests. They work hard but they are very robotic and they look overwhelmed.

Buy drink package and any excursions prior to boarding the lines are very long and you waste an extreme amount of time in them
