Great First Cruise for Us !

Sail Date: February 18, 2016

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Embarking was easy. Food was good, but the lines were long. The casino area was fun, but way too much cigarette smoking to really enjoy staying there very long. Our deck steward was very nice, even finding us a box fan. We left our valuables in our room safe. Lots of activities for all, the waiters were very accommodating, especially if you tipped them well. When disembarking, we had to be out of our room at 8:30am. If Carnival would allow you to stay in your room, until your deck was called, it would be so much smoother for their employees. It seemed they made it so much harder on themselves, because people are fighting to get off, when the vacation was over. All in all, a great time.Happy

Cabin / Stateroom
Overall nice. The toilet was old, stained and dirty. The pink counter top was cracked and stained, as was the shower. The carpet was a bit smelly.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was good, disembarkation was miserable, way too many people trying to get off. Carnival requires you vacate your room at 8:30am and there's no where to go, except hallways. They should allow you to stay in your room until your deck is called. They can clean for the next cruise afterwards.
Ship Quality
Efforts were made to maintain cleanliness during the cruise, however, there are areas that are old and nasty (carpet, walls, chairs).

Service and Staff
Some were helpful, others were not. The ones who were not, acted like they didn't understand English. Very annoying.
