Review summary

Cabin staff were hard working. Other than that it was the worst ship and cruise experience ever. After this experience we decided to never cruise Carnival again. The food was horrible, the entertainment was awful, the ship was disgusting. Our balcony wall was painted over rust, the balcony light was completely rusted. The drains around the outer floor was rusted. The bathroom fixtures were old and disgusting.  The furniture in public areas were absolutely filthy, warn out and. The cleaning staff worked hard day and night to keep the staterooms clean and our cabin staff, Ida, worked hard, went out of his way to accommodate us. In fact, it appeared all the staff worked hard. The age of the ship and it's condition was the problem. Also, the massage room in the spa was ice cold! 

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Horrible. Also, the very limited food choices for room service were disappointing. We chose to eat in our stateroom after the first night because the table was so crowded it was claustrophobic!

Total disappointment. Also, the seating in the theater and all public areas were warm out, stained & disgusting.

Service and Staff

The ONLY positive was our cabin staff, Ida. He went out of his way to keep our stateroom clean and be helpful.

Outdated bathroom fixtures! The coat hangers were old and sticky. The staff, especially Ida, was friendly and very helpful, he went out of his way to accommodate us.

Ship tip

Don't waste your money or time to sail on Carnival. After many cruises we will never cruise Carnival again.
