Pleasing surprised

Sail Date: October 31, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship has been nicely remodeled ( although a bit difficult to navigate for the first few days due to the layout) the cabins are still small and the closets are ackward ... However, the staff and customer service was excellent !!! Better than any cruise I have been on... ( I been on more than 25) so I think that is saying a lot. The food was above average for the carnival line. The steakhouse was a again above average on food and service. The adult pool area was great with really nice decor. The spa was updated too and ... They did a nice job in only allowing guest who had paid extra to use the 'spa facilities" so it never seemed crowded. Overall we were pleasing surprised with our budget friendly vacation choice.

Cabin / Stateroom We had three in this cabin and the layout was quite awkward... Best to leave the two bottom beds as singles otherwise there is no where to walk and you are crawling in from the bottom of the bed ... While trying to not hit your head on the bunk that was pulled down for our daughter.
