Not a large variety on Lido, food never really warm. Too small of an area for the number of people on board. Dining room food, fair.

Ship Quality

Not the cleanest we've seen. Layout typical Carnival. Choppy at best.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Aft wrap around balcony, Deck 7. Wasn't much not to like, except for the position of the toilet. Very awkward and difficult to use. Shower nice size though.

Very crowded in all dining venues. Try to go on off times for sure. Seating very limited.
