The biggest drawback to the entire thing was all the hidden fees that you really don't find out about unless you know someone who has been before or you really dig. There is a daily fee per person that you pay at the end, but you pay gratuity for everything you buy no matter what it is on the cruise as well so you essentially pay this twice. The food service personnel seemed like they would rather be anywhere else other than dealing with people. Most of the service personnel would completely ignore you unless you stopped them and asked them a question. My stateroom steward was very friendly and helpful. The childcare provided was alright. The best thing about it was there was a very large playroom for the children to play in and if your child was 2 years or under they provided a wifi phone so they could call in the event of an issue. The carnival hub app was useful for tracking a schedule but i think their chat option should be free for those persons that book on the same reservation. If they want to charge for you to chat with other persons not on your reservation then, I understand. All their shore excursions were amazingly overpriced and they were all full anyway.
