Be prepared to be disappointed because they took a small ship to host a certain amount of people and made it overcrowded. There is a line for everything and the wait is long. They added more cabins and cruisers but did not add more service staff. The staff did their best to keep up but Carnival did a disservice to their guests by adding more cabins and not enough staff. You can see and feel the difference and most guest thought that.

STAY AWAY! IF A SHIP SPENT 200 MILLION DOLLARS & HAS BLACK SMOKE AND HEATING & COOLING ISSUES AS WELL AS WATER ITS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THIS GOES UP IN FLAMES LIKE THE TRIUMPH THAT THIS ONCE WAS!!!

Unscheduled dinning for two people wasn’t the best way to meet others?

Bring walkie talkies. They will help you stay in touch with your party - especially if you don't want to pay extra for the chat feature through the Carnival Hub app.

There are only like 4 irons on the entire ship. If you are someone who irons your clothes, plan to work around that. I ironed the day BEFORE elegant nights. I also suggest bringing non-wrinkle clothes or ironing at home. I am not sure if a handheld steamer is allowed, but it's something to consider. Also, we brought a bunch of drinks and snacks for the kids and barely touched them.

If you are looking for a good ship don’t settle for a refurbished ship because it will not be the same regardless of the amount of money a company put into it

Become familiar with the deck plan. The layout is confusing

Do not compare it to newer ships. Remember, this is a renovated ship. Some of the amenities or perks received on newer ships you possibly will not find on a renovated one.

Finding the Limelight lounge can be tricky you have to go through the casino on Deck 5 and use the right side staircase, than go down to deck four.

I'd advise them to get a room with a balcony. I feel those rooms must have nicer bathrooms and it'd be easier to see things instead of from the bleary window I had.

Get to the pool early to place a towel or claim a chair. You aren't supposed to 'save' deck chairs but everyone did anyway.

Bring shoes for climbing the rope course. Do not count on dancing much unless you are into doing "The Cupid Shuffle" over and over and over and over.

2 pieces of advice. Get the FTTF option, you get on and off quicker! Avoid room 1001 unless your a very sound sleeper and traveling solo or with 1 other person. Room is small!

The fitness area was great. Lots of equipment and never too crowded! Shame TVs on equipment never worked.

Sign up early due to demand for cruises out of Norfolk.
