Review summary

The service was so poor in every area that it made a significant impact to our trip. Many guests complained about the service from travelers that have only been on 2 trips to those who cruise with carnival multiple times a year. The guest services reps were very helpful and understanding, but every other group needs to be improved. Very disappointed.
