Review summary

Carnival did not disappoint, but I must admit that the ship is overcrowded. Stateroom and dining room staff were exceptional. Food on buffet was not that good and not many choices to be had. Food in dining room was much better. My family did enjoy Guy’s burgers and I loved the blue iquana Mexican place.

Pool was standing room only on our cruise. Looked like a can of sardines packed in there. Water became murky by noon time.

Ship tip

Very crowded pool area. If you like a more quiet place to relax, try the back by the slide entrance on deck 10.
