Room Type: Balcony

Zero organization on this cruise. Food was mediocre - Β nothing I couldn't cook at home. Stewardess was rude, told us we make it hard for her to clean the room when we were in it so much. Child lock on the balcony didn't work, we missed Freeport and stayed overnight in Nassau which was pointless when we left port at 6 am. Not to mention Nassau terrified my kids. I will definitely go with Norwegian next time as the poor quality of carnival made the whole experience very cheap feeling. On a positive note, our ship was clean and the steward was nice - he always remembered our names even apologized for the stewardess rudeness. Circle C director was very nice but the room was very small and crappy for the amount of kids in there.Β 

Cabin / Stateroom
Clean and nice - child lock on balcony was broke. Reported it and nothing ever got fixed. A lot of noise from deck above . Great port views from balcony though.
