My overall experience was OK. I was disappointed with the ship. All the hoopla about the remodeling, I thought it would be a little more festive. The ship was smaller than I thought as well but there's nothing wrong with that. I didn't like the shows compared to other cruise lines. My excursions were great but the 2 I booked though Carnival could have had better departure times so you would be able to enjoy more of the port. The times were in the middle of the day and a lot of time was wasted. The 1 I booked through Vacation Outlet was amazing! I will admit, when we pulled up to the "excursion site", I was a little concerned but I judged that book by it's cover. We just happened to be the only people that had booked that particular time for our excursion and we had the whole time to ourselves. If you've never had a monkey sit on your shoulder and play in your hair, you've not lived!! The ship was clean, the food was abundant and the staff were all friendly. I got a tan and came home rested.

A lot of kids in hot tubs. You'll have to go up 3 flights of stairs if you want an adult hot tub.
