My husband and I have been on a few other cruises and this was the best one...up until the end. The ship was great with plenty of things to do. There were 3 pools including an adults only pool which was great. The food was good, plenty of variety all hours of the day. The staff was great! Everyone was super nice. The down side, we were instructed to place our luggage outside of our stateroom door the evening before our last day. Carnival provided us tags for every bag. The tag had a detatchable slip for our records. Upon arrival at the cruise terminal, our bag was gone. My issue is, there were about 2500 people on the boat and everyones luggage was just left in the terminal. There was no security to match up the tag on the bag to the ticket I had. The crew assured me someone may have mistakenly taken it and it would be brought back but by living in the real world, most people would not return a bag full of booze and presents. Between the 10 people working in the terminal helping people find their bag, why couldn't they have a few people double checking the tags. I was incredibly impressed up until the end. If you do cruise Carnival, keep your bags with you no matter what they insist.
