comedy shows were great as were the movies. Musicals have been seen for the most part. The casino was packed all the time and you could not get a machine They need to add more machines!!!! It was a premier casino cruise and could only play machines I didn't want to play or come back in the middle of the night

We love being on the 5th floor Everything is there Food, casino, liquid lounge, future cruise person and coffee shop I prefer being on this deck Much of the trivia is held here

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
cabin was wonderful cabin was always clean and orderly however we could not get CBS, NBC or ABC My mom is elderly and does not get off the ship at ports and was thoroughly bored Only tv was CNN 3 stations, and TBS, and TNT We are disappointed that Carnival made this change!!! They should consider their most frequent travelers and what they enjoy in their room!!!!

Ship tip

This is a great ship. It is large enough but not a mega ship Book the 5th floor and all will be convenient to you It is truly my favorite ship to sail until they took away major TV stations!!!!
