Review summary

First of all there are too many passengers for the size of the boat !!!!!! Everything is overcrowded, At the shows people can not find seats. There is not enough seats in the theater. Line jumping is rampant, carnival crew does nothing to stop it,even after being informed of this. I have been on a few carnival ships before this one,I will never go on carnival again. I would not recommend this ship to my worst enemy. We got to Puerto Rico late and most of the excursions were cancelled. We got out of St. Thomas late and had to cut short the amount of time in Grand Turk. There should be some form of compensation for this. At one point the hot tubs were cold.Carnival people didn't,t even know this had to be told. The whole trip was very stressful. To start off we were in the muster position for at least an hour they could not find everybody. The food at the buffet was fair at best. I am a senior citizen and retired, money is not so easy to come by. My wife and I saved up for over a year to go on this cruise. I really in my heart feel , sorry to say I squandered my money. Everyday the pools were full and the hot tubs full beyond capacity could not get in. Too many people for the amount of space.
