Loved evrything except the lifeboat drill which pissed me and others off.
Food was great. Cabin stewart\, Saiful\, was wonderful. In the dining room Penelope was efficient and delighted us by remembering our names [before we gave our cabin number] after the second day.
The entertainment was SEVERAL levels above what I expected.
The drill is necessary but it was thoughtless and calous to make us stand five deep along the corrodor for twenty minutes while carnival spieled us first in english then spanish about safety rules that had NOTHING to do with emergincy procedures. The necessary jacket and boat procedures took less than 5 minutes. The bulk of the time herded like cattle was spent on waiting and iterations not to throw cigarettes overboard. Some of the seniors were near tears from discomfort and my legs were killing me. A troubling way to start a dream vacation. There are a dozen ways to stress rules and safety without making us stand 5 deep for twenty minutes or more. Other ships make PA anouncements etc.
