Check in at the port port was rather quick and efficient. It was only 30 minutes from the time we dropped off our bags until we boarded the ship. Not sure if that is the Port of New Orleans or Carnival, but they worked seamlessly together. The ship was clean but needed updating. The carpet in the halls was worn and some of the light fixtures were coming loose. The room, we got a balcony this time, was nice but dated. The cabin steward was exceptional! Very friendly and funny. The main shows were great, it was a packed house both nights. They were some of the best we have seen and family friendly too. We also enjoyed the R-rated adult comedy shows at midnight. The menu for the dining room was run of the mill, nothing too exotic or unusual. We ate in the Lido resturant most of the time. The food there mirrored the London Dining Room menu. Jeorge, the Cruise Director, was very entertaining. Overall we had a good time. It was not the best ship we have been on, but not as bad as some of the horror stories we heard from other guests.
