This was a great cruise. We are a family of four (two are young teens). Everything from embarkation to debarkation was well-organized. Entertainment was top-notch. The live bands were exceptional. The evening shows were professional and family-friendly. The food was pretty good. We ate everywhere. The food at the Lido buffet is not the best. It is french fries, nachos, burgers. Not our kind of food. But some people ate there all the time. We liked that there was a variety of food to choose from. Cleaniness was impressive considering the number of people on the ship. The public washrooms on the Lido deck were a bit messy and smelly at certain times. They are heavily used during the day and I guess staff could not keep up. We stayed in an oceanview room. We found it very spacious with lots of storage for all our clothes. Staff was extremely friendly and always helpful. Our daughter has food allergies and staff went out of their way to make sure that she enjoyed her food experience on the ship. She ate like a queen. We all did. The cruise director, Felippe was lots of fun and kept up the spirits of the guests. "woo, hoo!". Thanks Carnival Cruise Lines, we will be cruising with you again.

Ship times are strict. When they say that the buffet closes at a certain time,they stick to the times stated. It's not 5 mins more or less. So be mindful of times if you do not want to be disappointed.
