This was our first Carnival cruise (We've done 4 other cruises) and I was not impressed. Carnival advertises this as their newest ship (recently refurbished and renamed) There were buckets to catch the dripping water sitting outside our cabin (always one and sometimes two or three) and four sitting in the lobby outside the dining room on deck three. We talked to several other guests who told us of water backing up through the drains, some had to have the carpet replaced. several times we could smell sewage in the passageways.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The sit down dining was very good, staff needed some training (serving from wrong side and not taking the ladies orders first) Late buffet was a disappointment, same limited menu every night. The Guy's hamburger stand was excellent but only open from noon to 6:00 o'clock.


3 out of 5
Most shows were good, tours were well run but expensive since a lot of the ports were a long distance from points of interest.
