The plus is the ship is very clean. I will never go on this ship again and now question if maybe Carnival in not a good cruise line for me. With three sea days I expected to relax and enjoy the time at sea but the cruise director and his staff ensured that did not happan. They have a wonderfully designed Serenity section of the ship with a bar and great service. It was so popular you had to get there early to get a place. About noon time the crew started screamming over the pa system to get folks to play thier games (they wanted 8 and finally got six) The screaming continued as they played their game to extreamly loud and offensive rap music. Serenity was sernity no more and the chairs started to empty and folks hid in their rooms, As i left I watched the lack of interest in the game as it was forced on passangers - what a shame - as maybe 30 folks total seem to enjoy watching other passangers make fools of themselves under the blarring noise. Avoid this cruise unless you are one of the fools or the 30.
