Review summary

This was our first cruise with carnival.....we are long time royal cruisers, but they had no cruises that suited us. So we took a chance , and did it open our eyes.......carnival, is great.....the food was better, and we never got hassled for up selling.....ever...... the after hours snack food was way better.....and more choices....... we will still cruise RCL, but now we have another choice......and am glad we tried carnival.....they are a fantastic cruise line.....the staff was always polite and attentive.....
