Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8279
Traveled As: Family (young children)

First off the port in Charleston is terrible, parking it horrible and we had to wait over 3 hours in line of cars just to get on the ship. Once on the ship you can really notice all the changes that Carnival has completed on this ship. The remodels and the kids areas are all very nice and modern. Our stateroom attendant and dinning room staff were very nice and helpful, but the rest of the ships crew did not act like they wanted to be there. Most people were friendly but not out of the way friendly like you find on Princess or Royal Caribbean.
