Review SummaryLarge ship, nice staterooms. We had an exterior room with balcony which was nice. Entertainment was good, except that they didn't let the live band play as much as I'd have liked. The crew were not unfriendly, but also not outgoing friendly; it seemed a lot of the crew were not well versed in English. The food was the biggest negative; we had nothing that made us think "wow that was great, I want more!". Just ordinary. The desserts at times did not seem fresh, like they'd been sitting out too long. There were times when the ice machines had no ice, and drink machines and coffee machines were empty and we had to go to 2-3 machines to find one working.
The casino smelled of stale cigarette smoke so badly we couldn't stay they for long.

Pros: Nice stateroom, good location (Spa Deck).
Cons: Food was so-so. We've had better on other Carnival Ships
